Synchronicity, have you encountered it, what do you think of it?
About 2 years ago, I had a book that kept popping up in front of me at the coffee shop that I go to. I love this coffee shop and the people there, they also happen to have some amazing books. This book was called Synchronicity by Chris Mackey. Can I just say whether you believe in Synchronicity or not, this book could just change your life! It did for me.
I had been plodding along being an OT (Occupational Therapy) for a very long time, but not really being greatly enthused by what this profession offered me anymore, and the profession is not about what it offers the professional it is really a profession that empowers people, but I was not feeling the love for it. This book was at the coffee shop, it is bright blue you can not miss it! Every time I was at the coffee shop I would pick it up, I would read a little bit, but I couldn’t bring myself to buy it. So, I asked for it for my birthday, to which my husband responded ‘you are not into those types of books, are you?’ He was right, no I had not been, but still, this book kept grabbing my attention. I ended up buying it I just had to, and I didn’t get it for my birthday.
I struggled through the beginning part, it was like many a textbook, but I persevered I couldn’t help it, and I am glad I did, it is a fantastic and very insightful book. It lead me down a path that I would not have ever chosen or thought about, it re-ignited my love being an OT and it introduced me to a whole new way of approaching, offering and thinking about empowering others. This is the book that lead me to undertake an ICF accredited Coaching course which has allowed me to offer coaching, OT coaching and return to loving OT.
