Don’t wait until New Years: Mid-year check-in

According to Inc Magazine, studies show that 91% of people will give up on their New Year’s resolutions by the end of the year. The year is not over yet, so there is still time to make amazing progress towards your goals. So let’s make sure that you do not become part of that 91 percent. 

You don’t have to wait until January every year to assess your life and goals. A mid-year check in is a great time to reassess your current progress and trajectory of your life. These simple steps will also help you to refocus on some goals that you have maybe put on the back burner. 

  1. Write it down-

Think back to January, try to remember the goal that you had wanted to achieve this year and write them down. For some, this maybe harder than others to remember. If your goals have new goals or changed some old ones feel free to write down your current goals.

  1.  Current Standing-

Assess where you are currently in the process of accomplishing these goals. Ask yourself the following 2 questions about each of your goals: 1) Have I been moving towards or away from my goal? 2) What steps have I taken in the last 6 months that have moved me towards or away from my goal? 

Asking yourself these questions will help you reflect on some areas along the way that you have struggled, excelled, or possibly need to redirect and try another route. Even if you have not taken any steps towards your goals, analyzing what step you may have taken that moved you farther away will help to know what areas to focus on first.

  1. Redirect –

Now that you know where you are currently standing today, you can plan out your roadmap for the future. Looking at your what are checkpoints that you can have monthly to make sure you are still on the right path to achieve your goal. These checkpoints would be something that can be measured out. For example, being able to run a certain distance every month, reading a number of books a month, or losing a certain number in pounds every month.These smaller goals will make your dream have a plan. This plan will keep you on track and moving towards your goals. 

  1. One Day or Day One-

It is very easy to plan the work and then not do the work. Most people will write the plan out and say they will start tomorrow (ONE DAY). What is one thing that you can do RIGHT NOW  that will help you move toward your goal? Make today your DAY ONE. Run down the street. Read those 5 pages. Drink that glass of water instead of soda.
