Relief in an Unplugged Toilet

There is such relief in an unplugged toilet! We have been 24 hours with a plugged toilet in the main part of our house. We have another one so we did have access but it was an inconvenience. The plumber arrives and with his special snake and one twist and $115.00 dollars later, we can flush!

This is a crappy story I know but “man” does it ever feel good to have it operating again. You see we thought that we could keep plunging and eventually we would be successful. But after a while you realize doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is really not going to work. Isn’t that the definition of insanity!

We could have taken the toilet off ourselves and run a snake through but it would take twice as long and who knows what could have happened so it is money well spent to bring in the expert! How often do we try to fix things ourselves when there are experts available that can really help your life be a lot easier?

Take coaching for example, how long do you work on a project or try to do something and you are stalled, can’t seem to move your project forward? Well, like a plumber can free up a  toilet, a coach can help you get free yourself from your own limited thinking.

This is a crazy comparison, I know but it is where my mind is this morning. Why would I spend several hours trying to do something myself when there is a professional that can help me get the job done faster? What are you working on or not working on but know you should? Who do you talk to? Who is your sounding board?

Why not contact me for a free consultation to see if we would be a good fit for some coaching sessions? I can help you move forward faster with your most important goals. I can help you find your own inner resources by asking you some questions.

You see we, as human beings, do not ask ourselves the difficult questions. Why, because they are out of our awareness. That is where a coach comes in. Don’t stay stuck, Contact me!   or Sign up to receive my daily e-mails at
