I want to talk about goals. If the January goal thing is your cup of tea, this is a great time to revist the goals you set then; we’re about halfway through the year. Dig them out of the drawer you stuck them in and see how much progress you made.
Wishing you made more progress? The best goal-setting advice I got was from the ever-awesome Dave Navarro from Rock Your Day. Dave suggests writing out your top 5 goals and looking at them daily. Don’t just write them down and stuff them in a drawer. I keep mine in Evernote. Looking at them daily sounds excessive. But when you have them in your face, all the time, its easy to focus on activities that support them. Actually look at them, if not daily, then at least weekly. The difference it makes is enormous.
If you’re like me, you don’t set your goals in January. I set mine now. I make birthday resolutions, mostly because I live in New England and January is cold, wet and snowy. Cold is not conducive to major projects. (However, it is conducive to Irish coffee, skiing and wool socks.)
