June is here – the days are getting longer and the year is getting shorter. We’re almost half way through 2013 – how has it been for you so far? What are you most proud of and grateful for? It’s a good practice to pause and ask some useful questions as you reflect on the first half, and prepare for course corrections in the second half. Are you winning? Do you need to adjust your game plan for what the competition is bringing? What are the biggest challenges you’ve had to grow through? What have you learned from that? In what ways are you stronger and more resilient than you once were? What unfinished business do you have? Are there some things that need to be followed through on? Maybe you have enough time this month if you really focused on them, or maybe they will need to be carried over? That’s ok, just be aware of it. Finally, what are your top 3 aspirations for the next 6 months? What do you want to create and why is it important to you? How do you want important things to be different with your numbers, operations, marketing, team, impact and your lifestyle?
Make some time for reflection, share your thoughts with someone you trust, get some perspective – then go out there and make it happen.
