Well, it’s arrived. The end of Q1 2017. Remember back a few months ago? Remember how excited you were to kick off the New Year? All the goals and aspirations you wrote down? The anticipation of what was to come this year? New ideas and projects you planned to put in place? Remember??
So, how’s the year so far? It’s one-quarter over. What progress have you made? What areas of your life/business/money are you proud of three months in? Where do you need to focus a bit harder?
I take the time to assess things at the end of every quarter. It’s very important to pause every 90 days to reflect and then plan the next 90 days. Chunking down my year into 4 parts has been an incredible strategy for me over the years. Here’s a start for you:
- What am I thankful for?
- What have I made progress on?
- What’s working?
- What am I frustrated with? And what’s the ideal solution?
- What do I need to do MORE of?
- What do I need to do LESS of?
- What are my top 2-3 goals for the next 90 days
Too many people just move through the year without a plan, without big enough goals. Growth is what it’s all about. Progress. What gets measured…improves. So take the time to reflect.
