January is already in the rear-view mirror, so now is the time to look back and take stock. You may be wondering, ‘Take stock? Now? We’re only into February!’ Start now by asking yourself:
1. What’s going well so far this year?
2. What isn’t working, i.e. what is preventing me from moving in the direction of my goals?
3. What changes do I need to make to get on track/stay on track?
I’m a big fan of taking inventory, but not at years end. Do it as you go along. That way, you can tweak your action-plan and make course corrections continually, rather than looking back at year’s end with a long list of ‘coulda – shoulda – wouldas.’
By taking inventory at the end of each month, you’ll have at least twelve opportunities to reassess, make adjustments, fine-tune and reboot if necessary.
To jump-start your progress for February, ask yourself:
What one change I can make TODAY that will help me stay on track? And then…DO IT! You’ll thank me for it in December.
