September is a great time to celebrate the progress you’ve made, acknowledge what has not gone according to plan, forgive yourself, hit the reset button and move on!
Grab a notebook and pen, find a quiet, clear space, preferably somewhere where you are surrounded by nature – your garden, a park, maybe alongside a river Take time to record your thoughts.
What goals have you achieved so far this year?
What strengths did you draw on to achieve those?
What had you hoped to achieve by now but haven’t?
What could you have done differently?
What aspirations do you have? Personally? For your practice?
Once you’ve reflected where you are and where you want to get to, take time to set some specific goals.
What do you specifically want to achieve by the end of 2019?
How will you know you have achieved that – what’s the measure?
What do you need in order to achieve it?
Are the goals realistic?
What are the timelines you need to in place?
We all have 86400 seconds each day. One of the barriers to achieving goals is simply not making time to do the things you need to do to succeed.
What action is required for each goal?
How much time does each goal need every week?
What time of the day are you most productive?
What do you need to do less of or delegate to free up time?
Set a time each week to review your progress. The next few months are going to fly by so check in each week to make sure you’re on track and adjust what you need to if you’re not!
When exactly will you review your goals and progress each week?
