If January is about new resolutions, then September's about
giving them a second chance.
But beyond school or University years, with no teacher or tutor
to give deadlines and fewer free hours to while away chatting with
friends about the future, it's harder to make the dreams a
But then recently I met Ed Haddon. That's not true. I'd already
met him, as a friend. But six months ago I went to see him in his
professional capacity as a Personal Coach. I was at a juncture in
my life; things needed to shift but I wasn't sure how.
It turns out that Ed became a coach when he himself was at a
crossroads. He wanted to make changes, so he googled 'coaching',
picked a coach and his life changed. The process was that powerful
and that simple, that he decided to become a coach himself and
signed up to a training programme at the Coaching Academy.
Coaching sessions with Ed Haddon can be over the phone or in
person and all I know is that they work. After just two sessions,
the blasted half-written script I'd procrastinated over for nearly
4 years… well, I'd finished the first draft. Which doesn't mean I'm
Hollywood-bound yet, but I had a new found confidence to finish the
task I'd set myself.
When you're making decisions, it's awfully easy to gloss over
the big questions or kid yourself you've done the research. But
with coaching there's nowhere to hide. No changing the subject
(believe me I've tried). And no worries about banging on about
yourself. You're paying someone to deliver a service. And from my
experience, Ed Haddon delivers.
