Having set your goals is one thing but keeping focused and on track is quite another thing altogether. If you are not working with a coach or extremely motivated to achieve your goal on time it is easy to lets things slip.
Often when we set goals we are inspired and motivate, keen to achieve whatever it is we want. However it is easy to sit back and expect things to happen, before you know it often time has flown by and little progress has been made. It’s not that we don’t want the goal .. just that it is not as motivating when having set a goal then you have to actually take action to make it happen
Most goals require some form of physical engagement, whether it be to write a book, lose weight, run a marathon, change jobs. It takes a lot of thinking and effort to turn your dream goal into a reality and it is so easy to start making progress then become complacent or become side tracked only to find that time has slipped by and your not making the progress you had planned or have lapsed with the progress you have made.
How best to stay focused and on track:
- Write your goals down, make sure they are SMART goals and have a deadline.
- Next chunk down you goal into smaller, achievable steps – working on one at a time makes it less scary if it is a big goal.
- Chart your progress – it’s motivating to see what you are achieving as you go.
- Work with a Coach – or if that is not possible join a Coaching Group. Meet with other people who have goals they are working on will help you feel motivated as you help and support each other.
If you are interested in our Coaching Groups you will find our sessions listed on Eventbrite
We also run GOALS sessions for people who would like to check in with a coach on a regular basis to keep themselves motivated and on track . https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/got-goals-keeping-focused-and-on-track-tickets-15899401538
This is one of the ‘Cafe’ style coaching sessions ran by Newcastle Performance Coaching Limited in the North East.
How many of us set goals at the beginning of the year? Many people decide to lose weight, end a relationship, change career, do more or less of something. But how many people actually succeed in achieving their goals?
In this interactive session we will look at the our Goals for 2014, see how much progress we have made to acheive them, what learnings we have taken from the progress we have made and look at how else we can work on those goals that we are struggling to acheive.
Life coaching can bring amazing results to the clients who wish to acheive Personal and Professional success – but good coaching comes at a cost. These ‘Cafe’ sessions are a great way of accessing affordable coaching whilst being supported and motivated not just by the Coaches but also by fellow delegates.
Refreshments provided – please bring a notebook and pen.
Limited places available (10) so that everyone has the opportinity to contribute.

In this months Spirituality Cafe we are looking at … a book – The Shack – a New York Times bestseller – the story of a man lifted from the depths of despair through his life-altering encounter with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit
If nothing else it is interesting and very thought provoking.
Listen to it (all 8 and a 1/2 hours) for free on YouTube read by the author.
Here’s some information from Amazon about the book:
Mackenzie Allen Philips’ youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later, still trapped in his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack.
Against his better judgement he arrives at the shack on a wintery afternoon and faces up to his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change Mack’s world forever.
In a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant, THE SHACK wrestles with the timeless question, ‘Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?’ The answers Mack gets will astound you and perhaps transform you as much as it did him. You’ll want everyone you know to read this book!
JOINT EVENT WITH … THE PROFESSIONAL PEOPLE NORTH EAST meetup group
Here’s some reviews:
Review’Brilliant! One of the most faith-enhancing books I have ever read’ (Bear Grylls)
‘Clearly the book is speaking loud and clear to a lot of people’ (The Independent)
Bunyanesque … bold, imaginative, humane and funny. (Church Times)
This book has the potential to do for our generation what John Bunyan‘s Pilgrim’s Progress did for his. It’s that good! (Eugene Peterson)
‘This is the most heart-warming, inspirational story I have read in decades. If you only read one book in the next year….read THE SHACK’ (J.John)
‘By far the most captivating, deliciously written and theologically refreshing page turner of a novel I have ever read.’ (Gerald Coates, Pioneer)
‘Dangerous, dangerous way to do off-the-hook theology, I love it! It’s not just what happens when a theologian becomes storyteller: this is what happens when a survivor who has experienced God decides to tell a story. This should be required reading in spirituality/theodicy classes everywhere. The Shack will quickly become a modern classic, and it will inspire imitators. But very few will match the competence of this work.’ (Siku)
THE SHACK is the most absorbing work of fiction I’ve read in many years. My wife and I laughed, cried and repented of our own lack of faith along the way. THE SHACK will leave you craving for the presence of God. (Michael W. Smith, Recording Artist)
This story reads like a prayer – like the best kind of prayer, filled with sweat and wonder and transparency and surprise. If you read one work of fiction this year, let this be it. (Mike Morrell, Zoecarnate.com)
Reading THE SHACK during a very difficult transition in my life, this story has blown the door wide open to my soul. (Wynonna Judd, Recording Artist)
