Schrödinger’s Life Coach

getting to know me lessons from coaching neuroscience Jul 09, 2022

When I first launched my business, I was obsessed with:  Website, Instagram account, Linkedin profile, freebie, Calendly…I'm sure I've missed many. Next week’s blog will be on the inactivity of overwhelm. But today, I felt like writing about Schrödinger’s Cat. What?

While I obsessed over the details of my business, I also spent time “procrastiworking.”  (DEF: “Procrastiworking”: Doing a bunch of stuff that looks like work but is actually a bunch of BS, like deleting emails, scrolling IG, examining colors on Canva- you get it, right?). One of my favorite IG accounts made a joke that he was “Schrödinger’s Bio Hacker.” I laughed so hard….I thought, yes, that’s what I want to be. Schrödinger’s Life coach.

If you watch Big Bang Theory, you have heard about the conundrum of Schrödinger’s Cat. (If you don’t watch Big Bang Theory, WHY? I ask. WHY?). In a nutshell, Schrödinger’s Cat is a thought experiment in quantum mechanics imagined by Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger (Cat lovers please note “thought experiment” – no cats were harmed). Dr. Schrödinger imagined placing a cat in a sealed box. This box contained a device with a 50/50 chance of killing a cat in 1 hour.  At the end of the hour, he posed the question: Is the cat alive or dead? Common sense would suggest that the cat has a 50% chance of being alive and a 50% chance of being dead. However, Dr. Schrödinger pointed out that, according to quantum physics, the instant before the box is opened, the cat is equal parts alive and dead. It’s only when the box is opened, that we see a single, definite state. Until the box is opened, the cat is a blur of probability. Just like our minds. 

Enter Schrödinger’s Life coach (that’s me). See, our brain is always one big blur of probability. Yes or no, agree or disagree, like or dislike….I could go on for days. And our brain will land on EITHER side of the equation, as long as it feels safe. Traditional physics teaches that a body at rest tends to stay at rest and a body in motion tends to stay in motion. But what about the blur of possibilities? Sometimes the brain is so full of the blur of possibilities it stays at rest, does nothing, no change. Sometimes it pings around and never lands on anything. 

What if you did a thought experiment and DECIDED to LAND? How would that feel? What would you land on? How would you create beliefs around your chosen thoughts?

I love life coaching because it has taught me how to land on thoughts that I both like AND find useful. A thought that supports me and moves me forward toward realizing my goals. AND, coaching and coaching tools have taught me how to create beliefs from these thoughts. Long lasting beliefs that have helped to transform my life. 

So, Life Coaching. Magic or physics? You get to decide and believe what you like. Hire a Life Coach and see for yourself. No cats will be harmed.
