It’s that time of year again, time for considering new goals and a new-and-revitalized you.
At Chez Moustache we’ve helped many clients achieve their grooming goals. From growing out or removing beards to changing hairstyles, and improving skin conditions. whatever the goals, it’s our pleasure to coach our clients through the process.
Our Chez Moustache waiting room is outfitted with comfortable and stylish furnishings, historical objects, art, and includes a carefully selected number of good reads for our clients to enjoy. Whether Sports Illustrated, National Geographic, Esquire, O or a few good books, the printed word is still a relaxing way to inspire and inform. We know the Chez Moustacher is enjoying this timeless luxury (the feel of the paper, the pleasant flick of turning pages) because we occasionally hear the tear-out of an article that simply must be owned!
If you are inclined to set a goal this year, but are feeling fuzzy about the specifics then we would recommend reading the book Finding Your Own North Star by best selling author, and life coach to the stars, Martha Beck.
The book is a coaching guide to self -reflection that is simple, practical and insightful.
There is a questionnaire that goes with it that Beck offers as a free download. The purpose is to make you think a little deeper about your likes, dislikes and objectives. The questionnaire asks things like the following:
- Name a bad habit or obsessive thought pattern you’ve been unable to eliminate: ________________. Now remember what happened to trigger that bad habit the last three times you fell off the wagon. (For example, “I’d had an argument with my mom,” “I’d been working day and night for a month,” “I was facing a performance review.”
- List three things that can always get you moving (Examples: “The family New Year’s party,” “Playing pickup basketball,” “Going to the mountains.”).
- Name three people who bring out your very worst social behavior. It might help to review hour life’s most embarrassing moments; the two are often linked.
If your goal or path felt unclear, by the end of Beck’s book and coaching guide you are certainly more likely to have made some headway.
If your goal happens to be moustache, beard or hair related you needn’t go far — Chez Moustache coaches are local and at the ready. May you reach your goals in 2015!
