We’re half way there
We are officially in the second half of this year! I can’t believe it. By now, most of us have either completed some of our goals or completely given up our goals. The year is almost over and there is no better time to do a mid-year check in with your goals.
Here are 4 ways to check in with your goals:
1. Check your list
Don’t be afraid to look back on your resolutions or goals. It can be a little bit disappointing if you had stopped making progress on your goals. But that’s okay! That’s what the mid-year check-in is for! This is the time to get back on track and start crushing on your goals.
2. Update or decide on what you want to achieve
Take a hard look at your goals. Update or make changes on any existing goals. If you had stopped on a goal, maybe something wasn’t working or you need to do something differently. Don’t be afraid to make changes as needed.
3. Break down those goals
Start with the end in mind, where you already achieved your goal then break down what you need to do monthly, weekly, or even daily to get to that point. For example, if you want to save $5,000 by the end of the year, that means that you need to save $209 a week, $418 per paycheck, or $836 per month.
4. Reward yourself
Don’t forget to treat yourself when you’re making progress. Change can be difficult especially when your habits are hard to break. You have to be proud to be taking every step closer to achieving your goals! Reward yourself along the way. It doesn’t have to be extravagant, it can be as simple as buying a cup of coffee or smoothie or getting your manicure done.
My mid-year check-in
Here are three of my major goals and updates on each one:
1. Feel good about my body
At the beginning of this year, I was wearing a size 8, but now I wear a size 6. I have around 10 weeks til my birthday so here is my game plan:
a. I will be eating mostly plant-based meals and have one cheat meal a week.
b. I plan on working out 3-5 days a week with Millionaire Hoy’s 20-30 minute workout videos.
c. I will track my progress by using a measuring tape every Tuesday morning for the next 10 weeks.
2. 12 books in 12 months
So far, this goal is on track. I’m currently reading my 8th book for the year. I’m excited to keep learning and improving my reading skills. Check out my book recommendations I wrote a few weeks ago.
3. Grow my blog
This goal have I just added a few weeks ago. I have more than 10 posts written up and now my goal is to grow the blog to have 10k readers per month. It is a pretty big goal especially for someone just starting out, but I’m up for the challenge. Here are what I plan on doing:
a. Continue being consistent with writing 2 blogs a week.
b. Start and grow my email list.
c. Increase traffic by working on the SEO and learning other ways to promote my blog.
It doesn’t matter if you’re on track or have fallen off the wagon, having a mid-year check-in is good to check your progress or change what’s not working. Any time is a good time to set some goals. Just imagine how you want to feel and have achieved by the end of the year. Set goals that can be broken down into bite-size plans. Achievable goals that can be broken down to weekly and monthly is helpful in feeling accomplished and continue attaining your goals! Now go and start crushing them! You got this!
