Another week another abbreviation, this time it is WOOP. It somehow is also related to coaching, but more on the self-coaching side 😉. Anyway worth checking.

"WOOP is a science-based mental strategy that people can use to find and fulfill their wishes, set preferences, and change their habits." See https://woopmylife.org/en/home for much more content, a great video, some science background and a way to practice.

More details about the mentioned book -  Rethinking Positive Thinking - by Gabriele Oettingen is available at https://youtu.be/OBfes3qFs4A, all necessary details in 7:54 minutes.

Want to go deeper into the Coaching topic, check 67 Deep & Thought-Provoking Questions for Coaches (and Self-Reflection) as a starting point for example,  https://clevermemo.com/blog/en/deep-thought-provoking-questions-for-coaches-self-reflection/ 

“Based on two decades of research findings, replicated across a variety of research participants, contexts, and methods, you would be ill-advised to indulge in dreams about achieving your goals and then assume you’re well on your path to success. Life just doesn’t work that way.” -- Gabriele Oettingen, https://as.nyu.edu/content/nyu-as/as/faculty/gabriele-oettingen.html
