Daddy, I want to go there one day…

I was listening to some classical music. I’ve not done so in some time as country is my usual thing. As usual, my son wanted to know the name of the track.

  • Noah: What is it?
  • Daddy: The Isle of the Dead – by Rachmaninov.
  • Noah: How you get there? By airplane?
  • Daddy: No. You have to be dead.
  • Noah: I want to go there one day.
  • Daddy: Probably. But not for a long time, I hope.

Isn’t it great that young kids have no concept of time? It’s quite the opposite as you get older, time becomes more precious – there’s less of it!

I am more conscious now of the sense of urgency to get on with the things I really want to do in life. In my 20s, I rolled with life making few plans. Now, time is something I protect and want to spend wisely.

Life is too short to waste time

Life is too short to be stuck in a rut doing something you don’t enjoy with people you don’t like being around – people who relish throwing obstacles in your path and who delight in bringing you down.

With the right people in your corner and the right focus on prioritising time to get the most out of your dream goals, anything is possible to achieve.

There are those who spend 70+ years existing but who do not live their dreams.

There are those who can squeeze more life out of a single year than others achieve in a whole lifetime – they dare chase and live their dreams.

Dare to chase your dreams?

With the right coach in your corner, you could stop existing and start living the heck out of your life and career. It takes just one simple step….

Live Daring Dreams before your time runs out.

I first worked with Will whilst I was a junior member of a teaching team. I worked closely with him for around three years and he became a true mentor to me. During this time Will helped encourage me to discover my own leadership style and he mapped out what it takes to be successful. I highly recommend Will for life and career coaching.

Will is a professional, natural leader who manages to make you feel at ease. He manages to be both emphatic and encouraging, whilst also managing to challenge you to find your own answers. Will’s approach is totally non-judgmental and the sessions are really focused on you and on what you want to achieve. Working with Will has allowed me to address challenges I was facing and he brought a wealth of resources and practical tools to help me set goals, clarify my values, and explore avenues right away. Even though I left teaching 5 years ago, I still seek out Will for his help and guidance and I appreciate his versatility as a thought partner, ally, and coach. Our sessions are always productive and efficiently run, which is perfect for someone who is juggling many priorities! Will brings great communication, professionalism and quality to his work and I highly recommend him as a life/business coach.

Will at Mapleleaf vision fitted me in for a last minute decision-making session that I needed to make ASAP re. a job offer / career change. He was friendly, professional, and really knew his stuff! He unpicked things that I could never have done on my own. I’m so grateful to him & will be highly recommending him to everyone! Where there is a ‘Will’, there’s a way! Thank you, Will. You truly have a gift.
