Summer is over... so, what's next?


Now that we have used many of our cherished vacation days over the summer, we are back at work feeling rested but maybe a little sad and stunned that all of the fun is over. But it doesn’t have to be...

Even if we aren’t students returning to school, September has a feeling of new beginnings. There are so many new programs and groups starting and so many options are available! With the end of 2009 in sight, now is a great time to review our goals.

Think back to January and what you set out for yourself for 2009, have you taken any steps to move you closer to your dreams yet? If not, there is still time – Join In!

And, if your job isn’t meeting all of your heart’s desires – start your job search! Or make a plan! Either way, Take Action!

When I was 22, I was introduced to Reality Therapy and Choice Theory by Dr. William Glasser and it changed my life!!

Specifically, the catchy phrase "No CBCs!" stuck with me from that point on.

What are the CBCs ? No complaining, blaming or criticizing!

Activity:
  • Just try it for one day - Avoid the CBCs: No complaining, blaming or criticizing!

  • Quietly become aware of just how many times you spend time in one day complaining, blaming or criticizing and then stop.
