At the start of the year, if you’re like most people, you selected a bunch of lofty, impossible goals. Now, halfway through the year, you feel disappointed and let down with yourself. In fact, the longer your goals list, the more overwhelmed and off-track you’ve got.
As part of your mid-year review, reflect on the first six months of the year and adjust your goals for the rest of the year. Revisit your goals, assess your progress, evaluate your approach, and change your timeline. Break big ambitious goals down into more manageable decisions and improve the odds of achieving the type of outcome you desire.
Try half-sized goals. If you’re struggling to attain a goal that seems to be too challenging, set a less difficult version of the goal.
If you’re not getting good results, then you go back and tweak what you’re doing. Don’t feel the need to change everything in your life at once.
