Sometimes we can be hard to pin down.
Sometimes we wiggle and squirm our way out of accountability, progress, or accomplishment.
Sometimes we say we are going to do something, but try to slip out of it.
A good friend calls it being slippery. Slippery like an eel.
But they make Eel Gloves.
Eel Gloves make it possible to hold onto the slipperiest eel.
Maybe what each of us need is that friend, partner, spouse, coach, or mentor that has OUR pair of Eel Gloves.
The person with the Eel Gloves could hold on to us when we are trying to explain away our lack of progress.
The person with the Eel Gloves could wrestle with us, not let go, and make us face why we are trying to slip out of the accountability.
That sounds like a good name for a coaching option for 2016.
Eel Gloves Coaching: You may be slippery, but we can still hold on.
