Why Shawn Tolleson & Strategy Coaching™…

In my experience as an entertainment career coach, there are four reasons why you as an artist and entertainment industry professional don’t accomplish your goal…

You don’t really know what it is.  (You have an idea, but it is far from specific.)

You know what your goal is, but you don’t know what to do to accomplish it.

You know what to do, but you don’t do it.

You know what to do and you do it, but you don’t do it powerfully and effectively.

At Strategy Coaching™ we work with you to conquer all four challenges.

Whether you’re a mid-career professional who’s achieved success but wants to go higher and further, new to the business and committed to avoiding floundering around like so many people do, or a an entertainment veteran who wants to reinvigorate your career, we have a program for you.

Clear vision + strong plan + passionate team + powerful execution + overcoming obstacles = UNSTOPPABLE

Why You Haven’t Accomplished Your Goal: Reason #3

As I’ve written the past few months, a lot of my clients find me and my coaching when they are very frustrated.  They work hard, get training, go to networking events, make phone calls, submit themselves and their work, and yet they aren’t getting where they need to go!

This series of blogs gets to the bottom of why you’re stopped, stuck, or not moving very fast.  In February, I tackled the problem of not really knowing what your goal is, specifically.  Last month, we dealt with the second reason you might not have accomplished your goal, that you don’t have a strategy.  If you haven’t read these blogs, I highly recommend checking them out.

This month we’ll look at the third reason you likely haven’t accomplished your goal:

You know your goal and you have a plan, but you’re just not doing it.

If this sounds familiar, never fear, help is on the way.Goals

So, the first thing to look at is whether or not you’re really committed to your goal.  In Jump Start™ I talk dig into the difference between commitment and interest.  Commitment has an intensity to it, as in a commitment to a cause.  Interest is more like a special attention.  When one of my 3 year old girls runs into the street, I’m not interested in stopping her, I’m committed.

I encourage you to be really honest with yourself and see if the thing you say you want to do, the goal you want to accomplish by December 31, 2014, say, is something you are truly committed to.
