We’ve reached the halfway point of 2019…where are you now with your goals? Have you already achieved your 2019 New Year’s Resolutions? What progress have you made on the goals that matter most to you? Are you getting the results you desire?
If all is going well and you have either already achieved your desired results or you are on track to complete those goals, congratulations! What will you do to celebrate? And, what’s next for you during the second half of 2019, since you have already been so successful? Please let me know about your accomplishments so I can join in your celebration — I’d love to hear from you.
Not as far along as you had hoped to be by now? I’ve heard from some of you that you’re concerned that you’re not where you wanted to be by now. Don’t worry — you still have time…but, you must start taking action NOW! Now is a great time to take a look at the challenges you’ve been experiencing so you can re-commit to your most meaningful goals for the rest of this year.
Here are 5 tips to help you get back on track or stay on track to achieve your desired results in 2019:
- Measure your progress with each of your 2019 goals
Is each one 0% complete, 50% complete, 80% complete? What’s in the gap between where you are now, and the results you ultimately wish to attain? What needs to happen to close that gap?
- Reconnect with the vision you had at the beginning of the year
When you first set these goals, what did you want to accomplish by the end of 2019? Why were those results important to you? Why are they still important to you? What is the vision you are holding for the rest of 2019 for your personal life and your work life?
- Revisit the specific goals that you set
Are your goals Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time-Oriented? Are they based on your values and priorities? If not, NOW is the time to restructure your goals so you can achieve them this year. Make sure that they are do-able so that you can achieve the results you truly want!
- Capture your key learnings from the first half of the year
Where did you get stuck? What obstacles got in the way? What have you learned about yourself and/or your goals that you will now do differently moving forward?
- Recommit to your vision and your new/updated 2019 goals
In order to be successful, you MUST renew your commitment to yourself and your goals! How will you know you are committed? Who else needs to know about your commitments?
NOW is the time to make some changes so that you can achieve your desired results by the end of this year (or sooner!).
