I attended the launch party for a colleague’s new book (yeah!). One of the heartiest thanks he gave was to his writing coach. “I’d still be on Chapter 1 if it wasn’t for her,” he said. Instead, he has a finished book that is on the market now.

Kudos to him for not only knowing that he needed help but for actually seeking it out — and then using it. Too many times people struggle on their own, sometimes successfully but oftentimes spending far more energy than would be required with help.

Whether it is to write a book, lose weight, learn new computer systems, improve your supervisory skills, or do a DIY project, don’t go it alone. Seeing out assistance can help you achieve your goal with more speed and less anguish. Remember, even the pros have coaches.
