“Where should I start?”, my client asked.
Lots of times, we want to make changes, we want things to be different. And sometimes, we want things to be different before we make any changes.

If you’ve ever been at a park or mall, looking at the map to figure out where to go, you might notice that one very important feature, “You Are Here.” It points to the spot where you are now.
Not where you want to go. Not where you want to be.
But where you are.
If you are at the mall and see the store you want… on the other side of the mall, you might wish you were standing nearby, near the destination store. Not all the way across the mall.
But if you are on the other side of the mall, that is where you are. Navigating to the destination from a closer point — a point where you are NOT — is not likely to be effective.
You start where you are.
And you might just find… it is a pretty good place to start.
Listen to this podcast episode for how to start where you are, and why where you are is a pretty good place to start.
