Since it’s the halfway point towards my goals, I’ve decided to review the goals I put together at the beginning of the year. So far, I’ve noticed that I’ve been plugging away as planned:
- Attended multiple networking events, as well as, hosted my own event cultivating old and new friendships.
- Assisted a few friends so far in achieving their own personal goals. I must continue to see how I can help others.
- Dedicated significant time to healthy dieting, fitness, and commitment to a renown martial arts facility.
- Decided on a travel destination outside of the country and have traveled interstate thus far this year. I must commit to a date for my international travel.
- DJ’d one gig so far this year and organized a successful event.
When setting your goals, also make sure to review them periodically. You can schedule reminders on your calendar or you can just check in every now and then. Choose the system that works best for you. As a good rule of thumb, the halfway point of the year is a good time to take a look and see where you’re at in terms of progress. If you have not done enough, start dedicating some time. Set up specific action plans and due dates. Worst-case scenario, adapt your goals. Perhaps, the milestones were a bit too lofty. Don’t be afraid to make a few changes. The idea behind goal-setting is to help stretch you to great achievements, not to set you up for failure.
On the other hand, if you’ve made it to the halfway point in the year and you’ve done everything you set out to do, maybe your goals were too easy. Add a few more items on your list of things to do before the end of the year. Consider them as bonus points.
