Are you on track to reach your goals this year?
If you’re not on track to meet your goals, you’re most likely feeling one of many flavors of disappointment. I’ve experienced a full spectrum myself.
But are we going to give up? NO! Please don’t give up. You have important contributions to make. We need your brilliance. Besides, you still have time to make a change and do your celebration dance.
Let’s agree to do our respective celebration dances on December 31st this year.
Are you with me?
One Question to Get Back On Track
You’ve encountered detours, obstacles, or hazards on the route. The current path isn’t giving you the results you want and won’t get you to your goal. It’s time to look for another way. Recalculate your route.
The first choice you need to make is whether or not you are on the right path. Before you go back to re-evaluate every little detail, answer this one question:
If you were to start your year right now, would you set the same goals as you did on January 1st?
If you answered no, congratulation, you have a clean slate. Start your year right now!
If you answered yes, it’s time to evaluate what is and isn’t working.
You can learn from both what is and isn’t working. Take the strengths of your successes and apply them to other areas.
You don’t need to change everything to change your trajectory. Often a small but carefully selected change can have an impact.
Give yourself permission to step back from your day-to-day and get a better picture of your operations. Whether you are a company of one or many, you need to work on the right things at the right time for the right reason.
