Did you keep your resolutions this year?
Don’t worry, according to Forbes, under 10% of the population actually does.
How about those goals we set earlier in the year?
Did you cross anything off that list?
I hope you did!
I read a stat recently that only 20% of the population sets written goals.
So, doing that much, you’re ahead of the curve.
If you had the wherewithal to complete one of your goals, you’re officially winning at life!
It’s nice to look back and see what you have completed, isn’t it?!
Kinda like the Done List I told you about.
In that same vein, here’s gift number one:
Looking over your goals at what you’ve completed, and what you neglected can give great insight to how you approach the second half of the year. Has your focused changed? Did you finish everything on your list? Did you do exactly nothing? Either way, it’s time to re-evaluate.
Setting Mid Year Goals is a great practice to get into. It’s just as motivating as doing it on January 1st.
[I’ve said before that there’s no need to wait until a new year to start something, so if you’re discovering this post at random on October 27th 2016…set some new goals anyway]
How will your daily habits change as a result of what you did or didn’t do?
Where is there room for improvement? What areas are you excelling in?
What would really excite you. What do you feel you need to get done?
I’m spending some time this week adding to my personal goal list, and pruning some items that are no longer relevant. It’s amazing how much can change in 6 months. I would encourage you to do the same.
Gift number two can help you do just that:
Set a few goals, think about why you want to achieve them, and what steps you’ll take to complete them. By December you can have every item checked off like a bawse. If you’re interested in learning more about setting (and reaching) goals, check out my fave book on goals, and one of the very first personal development books I’d ever read.
What is your #1 Goal for the next 6 months?
