Keep Your Fingers On The Pulse Of Your Life… Review Your Goals

2022 is history. It’s old news. Did you start 2023 off with a bang?

If you have set goals or resolutions for this year, will you really commit to achieving them or will they go by the wayside like many others?

Have some long term goals diminished in importance according to how you really want to live your life?

It is time again to analyze what’s happened in your life, what you’ve done, what you haven’t, and see where you need to adjust your strategies to move forward.

What are you happy with and what are you unhappy with? What will you change?

Here are Napoleon Hill’s six step goalsetting process if you want a refresher:

Keep Your Fingers On The Pulse Of Your Life…

Some of my long term goals are right on track and many are not. After taking a hard look at what I want, I will no longer pursue the ones which no longer make sense to me.

At the same time, I will recommit and intensify my efforts to achieve those that are in alignment with my life purpose.

And I have added some to my list.

It is the same every year. Once you start on the path, and you are actually in the fight, there are some things that stand out as incongruent with your higher purpose.

These are not failures. This can be very positive for your success.

There is no reason to beat yourself up over it. Just adjust your plan, and move forward to more of the right things, the things that make you happy.

This is simple goal setting strategy at work.

Plan, organize, execute, followup and adjust as necessary to happily achieve what’s important and fulfilling to you. Always move inexorably towards your major focus.

Follow your life’s purpose at all times, and you will joyfully travel your challenge strewn path through life.

Embrace the challenges. They will make up some of your best memories and give you some of the best stories to tell after you successfully negotiate them. This I know to be absolutely true.

I hope that you are getting the results that you want. You never know how close you are to the prize until you look up and see that it is there right in front of you.

FailureQuoteRecommit to those goals that are still important to you, and redouble your efforts. Set new exciting experience goals that you want for your life.

Stay Positive. Have Faith and Believe In Yourself.

So, discard those goals that don’t make sense anymore, and now focus on what you want to do, and where you want to be.

Don’t get all emotional over past results. Don’t let them hinder your future progress.

Clear your mind and concentrate your energies on what you really wanted for 2023. There is still another six months to finish strong!

As always, Go For It! Make 2023 your best year ever.

P.S. – Here are some ways to get back on track for the next six months until the end of 2023…

Sometimes we do face setbacks that hinder our progress. If you find yourself behind schedule with a six-month deadline approaching, there’s no need to panic. With a proactive mindset and strategic planning, you can get back on track and achieve your objectives. Let’s explore six steps that will help you reclaim success and meet your lagging goals.

  1. Reflect and Adjust: Take a moment to reflect on the reasons behind your delay. Objectively analyze the challenges, distractions, or unexpected circumstances that sidetracked you. Learn from these experiences and recalibrate your goals, ensuring they are both realistic and attainable within the remaining timeframe.

  2. Prioritize and Break It Down: Break down your lagging goals into smaller, manageable tasks. Prioritize them based on their importance and urgency. By dividing your goals into actionable steps, you’ll find them less overwhelming and easier to accomplish. Create a detailed timeline with specific deadlines for each task to maintain focus and accountability.

  3. Seek Support and Accountability: Share your goals and progress with a trusted friend, mentor, or colleague. Their support, guidance, and constructive feedback will prove invaluable. Consider joining a support group or finding an accountability partner who can help keep you on track and motivated.

  4. Streamline and Eliminate Distractions: Identify the distractions that have hindered your progress and create a productive environment. Limit time spent on social media, reduce unnecessary commitments, and establish a dedicated workspace that minimizes interruptions. Employ time-blocking techniques or try the Pomodoro method to stay focused and increase productivity.

  5. Adapt and Correct Course: Understand that setbacks are an inherent part of any journey. Be flexible and open to adapting your strategies as needed. If certain approaches haven’t yielded the desired results, explore alternative methods or seek advice from experts in the field. Embrace a growth mindset that sees challenges as opportunities for growth and improvement.

  6. Celebrate Milestones: Acknowledge and celebrate each milestone you achieve along the way. Recognizing progress, no matter how small, provides motivation and fuels your momentum. Reward yourself with meaningful incentives that inspire you to keep pushing forward and reinforce your commitment to success.

When lagging behind on goals with a six-month deadline, it’s vital to adopt a proactive and resilient mindset. Through reflection, adjustments, prioritization, support, eliminating distractions, adaptation, and celebration of milestones, you can regain focus and successfully achieve your objectives.

Remember, success is not only reaching the destination but also embracing the journey of growth and perseverance. So, take charge, realign your efforts, and face the challenge of regaining momentum head-on.

Your future self will appreciate your determination and unwavering commitment.
