Every month I try to reassess where I am on my journey for the year. Am I moving forward? Am I stagnating? Have I checked things off of my to do list? Or am I ignoring my goals and hoping for the best? What will put me back on the right track if I’ve veered off at any point?
I make lists for both my work life and my personal life. I encourage you to do the same. A master list of sorts to get you from A to Z in 2020.
Look closely today at where you are in your goals and where you want to be. Is there a noticeable gap? If yes, write down your action steps in each area to get you back to making positive changes and moving forward again. Start a 1-2-3 plan to move yourself from where you are today to where you want to be in the future.
Your plan may require many steps. One thing is for sure. If you don’t plan with forward progression, you will stay rooted to where you are. Remember, a misstep on your journey is only a wrong move if you don’t learn from your mistake. Back up, regroup and go forward with your new knowledge.
List out your goals for the month and the necessary actions you need to take to accomplish them. And then start checking them off Forward progress is a good thing.
