“We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.” C. S. LEWIS
To begin a new year with setting priority goals is important. Creating a structure to review & assess at various points throughout the year can prove even more crucial.
We’re just past the mid-year point of 2023. Good time to pause & assess. What have you given up on already or find yourself fiercely sticking to without evident merit? Pause & mentally dust yourself off to rethink your strategy or process. What aspects need to change to head toward a better path?
“If you correct your mind, the rest of your life will fall into place.” Lao Tzu
It all begins within our mindset; reflecting, correcting & perhaps shifting what felt solid at the start of the year. Expectations for the goals set, the direction to get there, & the timeline for achievement.
To be able to reflect on what’s been achieved thus far, progress made, helps to determine what’s working & what isn’t. Will the current direction prove effective? OR is now a good point in time to recalibrate? Time to enlist the help of an objective trusted friend, colleague or professional for input & coaching to chart the best path forward. What variable would have the greatest impact for progression to make the most with the remainder of this year.
