Feels like Spring Fever is at an all time high! Here in Central Wyoming we were snowed in on Tuesday and today it is 50 degrees! There are some exciting things
coming up as we bring the first quarter to an end. I'll get to some of these, but how are you ending Q1? Let's think about that as you explore the March Newsletter.
This year I am dedicating some of my energy to developing character traits I admire in others. I have decided to focus on a few each quarter, hopefully making them habit at the end of that time. This quarter, I am focusing on self-discipline, reliability and determination. Whew! This has been quite a learning experience. I have had to come up with strategies that support my success in these areas and habits to support those strategies. Honestly, if I can win in the self-discipline area, I think all the others will come naturally.
One of the ways I stay on track with this is I have a clear picture of what my life would look like in the future if I succeed. I also have a vision of what my life and business would look like if I am not successful. I prefer the first option.
Here are some thought provoking questions for you to think about and talk about with you freinds and family:
- Is there a character trait you see in someone else that you admire and would like to emmulate?
- What does this trait mean to yo - define it.
- What would you have to change in your daily life to introduce that into who you are on a regular basis?
- What would you have to STOP doing in your daily life to introduce that into who you are on a regular basis?

Habits Make Good Company
If you haven't seen movement on the goals you set 2 months ago, maybe it's time for you to instill some new habits, and stop doing some other things. It can seem like an arduous task - formulating a new habit - but you can do it. Probably not in 28 days, sorry to say, but it can be
I will share my strategy of instilling a new habit. I have 13 habits that I track ( 10 are daily 2 of them are weekly and one is monthly). I have them on a spreadsheet and every day I complete that I get a dot in that box for that day. Simple really. Then I can look back on the week, see where I was successful and where I struggled.
This also serves as a measurement tool for my goals. My habit tracker is linked to one of my goals. If I am struggling to do the daily tasks that I have identified will get me to my goals, then reaching my goal seems like a distant reality. So I need to adjust.
I love this system because it doesn't allow you to go too long without seeing a pattern. Once you see that pattern and adjust - there you are - back on your way toward your goal!
I'd be happy to share my habit tracker with you. If you are interested, reach out!

High Ground News!
I am so grateful for the people and organizations that have trusted High Ground Coaching and Development with their needs. We have had an amazing start to the year and I am pleased to share them with you.
As Planning Coordinator for Wyoming Women's Legislative Caucus we had a great Leap into Leadership event Feb. 18/19th. We had over 70 women together to talk about leadership and running for office. The evening of the 18th, we gathered for dinner and heard Abigail Harrison (Astronaut Abby) talk about the amazing work she is doing with her non-profit Mars Generation as well as hear about her plans to be the first person to walk on Mars!
The next day we heard from Superintendent Balow and took a great tour of the newly remodeled Capitol - it was a great two days!
