Most of us set goals at the beginning of each year. However, goal setting should not be limited to just one time per year. As the middle of the year rapidly approaches, this is a great time to assess and plan for the second half of 2018.
Goal setting can prove monotonous. Here are three great tips you can follow in the next couple of weeks as it relates to your goals:
- Reassess January’s goals: Review and take inventory on the goals and plans you made at the beginning of the year. Asses what’s been working and what hasn’t been. Make plans and double down on those activities that have brought you the best return. Revise and/or remove those that haven’t been working.
- Determine what needs to be done. As you set your midyear goals, make specific plans and arrangements on what needs to be done to make your goals come to fruition. Not only should you make a detailed action item list that includes bullet points, but set deliverable dates to help you stay on track.
- Identify those who can help you achieve your goals. Spend some time identifying persons, groups, vendors, companies and organizations that can specifically help you achieve your goals. Then determine how they can systematically assist you. Once you do this, setup a time to meet with each one to discover how you can mutually help one another. Accountability is key.
Don’t forget to write down your goals. Studies conclude that those who write their goals down are more likely to achieve them. Being successful can prove very difficult if you lack a specific plan to how you are going to get to your destination.
