Action Plan Review

Your action plan for last week was to:

  • Use the Making a Commitment to Change worksheet to help you record your 1) reasons for change, 2) pros and cons of change, and 3) self-contract and goals for the course.

How did you go? 

If you completed your action plan tasks, well done! We hope you found it helpful to think about your reasons for change. Hopefully the pros and cons exercise helped you to gain further clarity about why taking action will serve you better than taking no action and staying the same. Often, taking action creates some short term distress, but the long term benefits far outweigh the costs. Have a think about whether this is the same as what you found.

If you didn’t get a chance to complete these tasks, we encourage you to go back and do so before taking on Week 2.
