Self-Care, Tips & Tricks
June 14, 2023
Now is a great time to take a step back and reflect on how far you’ve come in reaching the goals you had set for yourself back in January. What goals have you made steps towards? Which goals are seemingly untouched?
A mid-year check is a great benchmark to see all that you have accomplished so far this year. It can also bring clarity as to any shifts that you want to make in your goals that may better align with where you are in the moment.
Doing Your Mid-Year Check-In
Start by identifying what you have already been able to accomplish this year, including what challenges you had to overcome. Were there things that actually had gone better than you expected them to? It’s important to celebrate your successes and all of the hard work you have already put in. Keep in mind that progress is not always linear or measured by major leaps, even the small steps count towards your goals.
What have you been unable to get to or are no longer finding as important to accomplish? Recognizing the goals that have been untouched can be a great opportunity to reassess or possibly change courses, if necessary. Throughout the year, there may be unexpected challenges and obstacles that make the goals you had set for yourself back in January less of a priority to get to. As you reach this mid-way mark, reviewing and revising your plans for the remainder of the year can help you get right back on track.
You’ve got 6 months left . . . let’s make the most of it.
Are they still relevant and meaningful to you?
It’s okay to change your mind, so consider adjusting your goals and intentions if they are no longer a priority for you. It’s absolutely normal for an important goal from January to shift into something else come June. What matters most is that you’re working towards something that truly matters to you.
What specific actions can you take to move closer to your goals?
By breaking down goals into smaller steps it becomes more manageable to reach your larger goals as you can identify what actions you need to take in order to get there. Also, as you accomplish each task you will feel more motivated as you can see you are on the path of success.
Who can you partner up with or what plans can you put into place to help you hold yourself accountable?
Sharing your goals and progress with someone you trust, like a friend, can help keep you on track and remain motivated. An accountability partner is mutually beneficial as you can support them in meeting their goals as well.
Another way to hold yourself accountable is to write them down. When you write down your goals, you are 42% more likely to achieve them. Your written goals are a good reminder of what you want to accomplish.
We hope this halfway point review inspires you and gives you clarity on how to take charge of the rest of your year and make the positive shifts you want for yourself. Remember, every day is a new opportunity to make progress and move closer to your goals – and you still have plenty of time left to accomplish them!
How will you create a plan to continue to focus on what’s most important to you?
