How You Do Anything Is How You Do Everything

Joe Ensign teaches Budokon Yoga at Equinox. Budokon is a combination of martial arts and more traditional yoga poses.
I don’t prefer Budokon, but I like Joe.
I like Joe because of the intensity and lightness he brings to yoga.
I like to think he’s that way with everything he does. And, because Joe says:
How you do anything is how you do everything.
This sentiment may be Yogi 101, but it was new to me.
It fits with the coaching I do. I rarely refer to myself as a “life coach”, yet what I practice is really “whole life” coaching, sometimes thinly disguised as Executive Coaching or Business Coaching. Meaning, whatever shows up, shows up.
It’s always the client’s agenda and it doesn’t really matter if we talk about work or life or love.
It’s all connected.
Part of my work is to help clients see that connection–which isn’t always all that evident when you’re living in the middle of it.
I’m always a little amused when people say:
“I’m a completely different person at work.”
Really?
I doubt it. And, if you are, what’s that about?
Think about it:
How you do anything is how you do everything.
