It's a new month so its team for July’s edition of the FFF (First Friday Feature). I hope that everyone had a wonderful and safe 4th of July and are ready to take the rest of Summer ’17 by storm. :) Today’s FFF is all about the Mid-Year Review of your 2017! July started last week and kicked off the 2nd half of the 2017 and what better time for a mid-year review of your life than now? The most successful businesses in the world have regularly scheduled reviews and most employees are given a mid year review… and from where I’m standing your life is a business … YOUR BUSINESS … so why not give yourself a review and see how you can improve your 2017? I like to tell my clients that sometimes things require a restart or even just a little revisiting to jump start a new urge of motivation. So here are 5 reasons why you SHOULD complete a mid-year review.
Motivation - Life gets busy and things fall by the wayside, sometimes without you even knowing. A mid-review year of your 2017 can remind you of the things that you planned to accomplish this year and give you the motivation to put fire under them once again.
Accountability - Without accountability, you are moving no where… FAST! Completing a mid-year review makes you accountable to what you said you were going to do this year. Everyone accomplishes more when they are held accountable.
Progression - Even slow progress is better than no progress… but how will you know if you are progressing without measuring where you currently are compared to where you started and where you are trying to get to. The mid-year review will let you accurately see how far you have come during the first six months of 2017.
Morale - You have to be your own cheerleader, even if no one else wants to recognize your hard work and dedication. Reviewing your 2017 can remind you of what you HAVE done this year and give that notion that it’s ok to pat yourself on the back or applaud yourself for accomplishing what you have. Remind yourself of how awesome you are and reiterate that you HAVE what it takes to be great in 2017.
Planning - Completing a mid-year review sets you up for an even better remainder of 2017 which leads to a great closure to the year. By seeing what you have and haven’t done thus far in the year, you can effectively adjust goals as necessary and plan out the last six months to fit where you actually are. When the year started, you probably thought the year to be a certain way but as the months went by, everything didn’t happen exactly as you would have thought. Therefore, this review allows you to essentially press a “reboot” on 2017!
