We’re halfway through the year and June is usually when most people take stock of or give up entirely on the goals set at the beginning of the year.
This week Unathi touched on the mid-year check in and how important visualising your goals are.
Unathi’s motivational posts on social media speak to the power of positive thoughts and accountability. She has previously mentioned that she believes confidence is built and that it’s something you have to work on consistently.
Most companies also do a mid-year check on employees to track progress in performance and bring up salary adjustments.
Doing a mid-year check-in of your goals is a good way to assess whether you’re on the right path to meeting what you set yourself to achieve for the year or not.
Here are 5 tips to help you keep track of your goals:
Check your list
It might feel disappointing to look back on the goals you set only to realise that you had setbacks that meant they were not achieved, but that’s okay. This is what the mid-year check-in is for. To help you get back on track. Check your list and tick off the ones you did reach and highlight the ones you need to prioritise.
Update or reassess what you want to achieve
Once you have gone through your list again, update or reassess your goals. If something needs to change, don’t be afraid to adjust your goals and lower your expectations if need be.
Break down your goals according to a timeline
Setting a more realistic timeframe to achieve your goals will relieve some of the pressure you’re placing on yourself. Try to not focus on meeting the goals by the end of year and instead break them down to be more manageable. To be attainable set yourself daily and weekly goals instead of a 6-month goal.
Ask yourself what you need to sacrifice to reach your goals
What are your goals going to cost you? More hours at the office? Waking up earlier? Do you need to put in some capital to get your goal off the ground? Weigh out what it’s going to “cost” you to achieve.
While you’re meeting your targets and achieving your goals, don’t forget to reward yourself for the milestones you do reach.
