How To Decide What To Work On Next


Sometimes, clients bring so many problems that it feels overwhelming to you. And to them.

So what can we do when this happens and it all feels like a jumbled mess?

When you feel this way, that is your cue to map it out. Don’t stay in confusion. Let the confusion be your trigger to go into mapping mode.

After all, if we don’t have clarity on the problem we are working on, how can we work out how that specific problem makes sense?

We need a way to focus on the first problem to work on. Here’s how in 3 easy steps:

1. Take a sheet of paper or a whiteboard, and write out the various issues raised – a bit like a mind map.

Self Esteem. Anxiety. Can’t Say No. Whatever it happens to be. Map them out by writing them on various parts of the whiteboard.

2. Then ask your client: "Where are the connections here?" Let them reflect on how various issues feel linked.

They might say: "Well if I had better self-esteem I reckon I’d say no easier, so they’re linked."

Whatever they reflect on, it gives them a chance to notice any connections.

3. Finally, ask the key question: "Which of these issues, once sorted, will have the biggest positive impact on your life?"

Their answer decides what to work on next.
