When the Going Gets Tough

January 2024

Linda's motto used to be, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." She worked hard for many years with that in mind. However, in the last several years she has a new motto: "When the going gets tough, what's happening?"

Why the change in motto? Well, maintaining difficult situations and powering through them may not always be the best way forward. Just as in coaching sessions, it's important to keep a stance of curiosity and contemplate options when difficulties and challenges arise. This can be very empowering, and usher in new, easier, and more enjoyable choices or ideas you might not have previously considered.

Here are some coaching questions we hope you find helpful if the going has gotten tough, and you are wondering "what's happening?":

  • What is tough about your current situation?
  • What would make it easier?
  • What is in the way of "fun and easy" right now?
  • What would help you bring clarity to the situation? ex. Breathing exercises, meditation, the Options tool etc.
