When it's the half-way point already - I know it's hard to believe. That's a good time to take stock of your life and work intentions and achievements for the first half of your alloted time. Set aside some time over the next few days to review your goals, plans, intentions and resolutions (I hate that word, it's so ominous) that you set at the beginning. What? You didn't set any? Well then, now is your chance to do it!

The review process is in many ways the most critical step in achieving success towards any project or major undertaking. This is true in both the business arena and at home. You must determine where you are, to know where you need to go. You might want to review some of your goals with a partner such as household finances with a spouse, strategic business plans with key people in your company or work project with your team. Others are best looked at alone. The key strategy to remember is that you must be completely realistic, specific and honest for the process to work.

Look at each goal or project and check your progress:

  • What was the desired outcome?
  • What is the current status or progress that has been made?
  • What actions have I taken?
  • What worked? What didn't?
  • Do I need to revise the goal for the second half of the year?
  • What steps need to be taken to achieve the result I want?

Pat yourself and your team on the back or give yourself and your team a reward for what has already been achieved. Even small amounts of progress are important. Steady and consistent actions towards any goal or change are the most efficient way to achieve success.
