Shaking Things Up

Do you ever turn your keyboard upside down and give it a good shake? I strongly recommend it. You will
be surprised at the stuff that falls out! Giving your keyboard a good shake every now and then is essential
to keeping it working properly. If you are expecting a metaphor here, we are not going to let you down! At the risk of sounding like Forrest Gump (life is like a box of chocolates...), life can be a lot like your keyboard! Giving it a good shake every now and again is essential to keeping it working well, too.

Now, we are not suggesting that you do anything drastic here! Don't write to us and tell us that we said you should quit your job or leave your mate. All we mean by a shake-up is that sometimes we all get too complacent, or set in our routines. We forget to stop and take a good hard look at ourselves and what we are doing. It is really easy to get into feedback loops, acting and reacting in the same ways, whether or not they are positive or productive for us.

In an old Star Trek, The Next Generation, the beloved Enterprise was stuck in a time warp loop, experiencing the same two days over and over again. Their reactions to this crisis, over and over again, would lead to their destruction. It was only after they became aware and changed their reactions, that they were able to escape the loop.

We all do this. We react in the same, predictable way to people in our lives, and situations that reoccur. Taking time to stop and examine our routines, and then changing the way that we act and react (shaking the keyboard) can make a huge difference in our lives! Is there a person in your life that just annoys the heck out of you? If you are forced to deal with this person on a regular basis, you may be in a loop, reacting to them in the same way each time. Try changing how you perceive this person and change the way that you respond and react to them. If nothing else, it will really shock them, but it might change the entire dynamic of the relationship.

Personal coaching can be a lot like shaking your keyboard. It can lead to a renewed feeling of peace and harmony in your life. Personal Coaches can show you the loops that you are in and guide you out of them, to a new way of life. It is important to choose a coach that is compatible to you. You also need to find a coach who is living what they teach. If you encounter a coach who seems to be just reading things to you from a script, and then sending you the script that they just read to you over the phone, then you need to try a new one. You should be able to chat easily with your coach. If you don't feel at ease with him/her, then you are not going to gain much from the work. All good coaches will offer you a free session, and it is your best interest to use it. That way, you can see how it feels to you, and make an informed judgment about it.

And metaphors aside, really do turn over your keyboard and give it a shake; it makes the keys work a lot better!
