Your Best Year Yet – Still Possible

We’re half way through 2016. I imagine you started the year with big goals and dreams – even intentions for some major transformation.  So, where are you now? It’s time to assess.

Ask yourself:

  • Are you on pace/track, ahead or woefully behind?
  • At the outset of the year, did you establish leading indicators (predictive measures) to track your progress toward achievement of your lagging measures (historic, end goals to achieve)?
  • If you’re behind
    • What got in your way?
    • What did you stop believing about yourself?
    • Where were you out of integrity with your word, yourself?
  • If you’re ahead
    • Are you acutely aware of the constant habits that will sustain and propel you?
    • Can you repeat your success?
    • Was there a ‘blue bird’, unsuspected windfall that put you ahead?

Regardless, the second half is yours – to turn things around and/or achieve things beyond your imagination.  Take a quick look in your review mirror and ask:

  • What did I accomplish?
  • What were my biggest disappointments?
  • What did I learn?

Now look forward and consider:

  • What do you want more of in your life?
  • What do you want less of in your life?
  • What two actions could you immediately take that would significantly better your personal/professional situation?

The next six months will set the stage for 2017 – on all fronts.  I encourage you to reflect, inquire and act – boldly and courageously.
