April officially marks the start of the second quarter of this year. For those with specific goals and resolutions for 2011, this is a great time to evaluate our progress.
Over the last several months, our Lecture Series and previous posts have focused on the process; the strategies, commitments and habits necessary to move us closer to our goals. When we focus on the process
the results usually take care of themselves. But every now and then we need to evaluate our current strategies to ensure they are getting us closer to where we want to be.
Start by simply asking yourself if you are any closer to the goals and resolutions you set at the beginning of the year. If you are, great! Take time to reconnect with your vision/mission. This will help you stay
focused and create a sense of urgency regarding your goals and specific strategies.
If you find that you are not on the right track, ask yourself, “why not?” Perhaps your initial strategies were inappropriate or unrealistic. Maybe you did not have the right system of accountability and lost focus. Maybe you nailed your strategies but simply need to progress them (i.e. committing to exercising 5 times per week rather than 3). Whatever the case maybe, address the reasons, refocus and recommit.
Remember, stay focused on your prize and the process.
