The Power of Self-Reflection

Sunday Secular Sermon #1

I want to make The Coach’s Notes a powerful force for good. My mind is swirling with ideas and thoughts on how I can bring more value to you as subscribers—both paid and non-paid subscribers.

During my self-reflection session yesterday, I remembered that the School of Life used to run an event called the Sunday Sermons. The idea was to take a secular approach to the church format.

Strictly speaking, a sermon is a speech or talk given by a religious leader or preacher during a religious service or gathering. The purpose was to offer guidance, instruction, or inspiration to the congregation or listeners based on religious teachings or principles.

My Sunday secular sermon is a riff on this idea.

This is my first one. I went for a radio DJ-style presentation. This felt more comfortable than standing up and preaching to the birds!

Anyway, I do hope you enjoy it.

Excellence and Wisdom,
