Have you ever had a doctor ask you about your pain level? They ask you to rate it, generally from 0-10 with 10 being your greatest ever imaginable pain and 0 being no pain at all. It works well because not only does it allow someone to have a sense of your current pain level, it also helps to notice when things are getting worse – or hopefully, better!
Sounds pretty reasonable and pretty cool, because while no one’s pain can be compared to another (although empathy might come close), a number system seems to work pretty well.
I do this with my clients. All. The. Time.
And I’ve created a form that they can use to let them track all kinds of progress. Think this might be helpful to you? Send me a note (Check over to the right hand column…I’ve made it easy to contact me) and I’ll forward you a copy, along with how to easiest use it. Maybe that will offer some perspective on where you are, where you’ve been and where you hope to be.
