What really matters? That’s a great question! Does the answer just roll off your tongue? For many people it doesn’t. But if you don’t know what matters, what difference does it make what you do? How can you be satisfied with your life and your impact on the people important to you?
At its heart, Personal Agility is a coaching framework to help you figure out and focus on the things that really matter to you. Personal Agility is based not on performing tasks but on asking yourself Powerful Questions. A powerful question invites you to think and reflect. You know what is the right thing to do.
These core questions help you figure out and focus on what really matters. There are a total of six questions, five to ask yourself routinely and one to help you get unstuck:
- What really matters? — This provides context for answering the other questions.
- What did I get done this week? — Celebrate it and feel good about yourself (even if what you did was different that what you had planned last week)!
- What could I do this week? — Keep you to-do’s in a place you will see them again.
- Of those things, which are important and which are urgent? – Triage against what really matters.
- Of the urgent and important things, what do I want to do this week? — Take only as much as you think you actually get done.
- Who can help? — The question and the answer can both help you get unstuck. That person might be helpful too!
