Staying On Track
We have officially completed the first quarter of 2014.
How has it been?
Remember those New Year’s Resolutions?
What have been some great successes thus far? Setbacks?
Achievement is not so much about how we start. Or even how we finish. It is more about the journey. The habits we build. The mindset we develop. How it changes us from the person we used to be to the person we become.
One of the best ways to ensure we continue to move the right direction is how we hold ourselves accountable.
I think a MAJOR mistake for most of us is when we fail, we quit. We have great intentions when we start but when we slip up/make a mistake/things get challenging we throw in the towel.
Why did we set a goal in the first place?
To ACHIEVE something.
Stop what you are doing! Take a 15 minute self assessment (or schedule 15 minutes in your cal for later) and reflect on your first 3 months. Here are a few tips to include in your assessment:
*If you have a journal, read through your old entries.
*Look through your facebook page to capture your thoughts, pics and events that have occurred.
*Pull out another piece of paper (or your journal) and write down all of your thoughts, reflections of where you have been and where you would like to go. Re-commit yourself to this year and quarter. Then write down your plan for today, this week, month and quarterly and get after it.
After you have reflected and recommitted it’s time to for you to re-do and this time achieve. But how?
Use your coaches. We are the best way to help guide, support and check in with you to help you stay on track.
Consider this week and next QUARTERLY REVIEW WEEK(s). If you are in need to get back on track, or light a fire in your ###, or take your results (physical, mental and emotional) to an even higher level, do 2 things…
A good thing about setbacks is when we develop the discipline to recommit and re-plan, our failures can be a great motivation to finish what we planned to start!
