Do you remember the blog I posted a few months ago about goals and how to have a great 2015 (click here)?
Well this post is about evaluating what you have done and how you can still make 2015 a great year!
Look back at your goals list and see which once you have already accomplished or still working on. Some made an actions plan which means the things they are going to do to help them reach their goals. A few evaluation questions that you have to ask yourself when taking ANY further steps.
- Are these still my goals and actions I want to take and reach?
- How far have I came?
- What have I learned from (the wrong approach, decisions, strategies) it?
- How can I improve my second half year of 2015?
- Is it SMART?
- Do I have to adjust my plans?
- Can I add more goals/action plans?
Essential questions! If you have some of your own or related to your goals please add them and write everything down in your journal if you have kept one. You can also just write it on a piece of paper. But it is important to have it written down somewhere (HAND WRITTEN PLEASE) and carry it with you.
Look every once in a while and use it as a compass to your goals.
And never forget to thank yourself for the past few months and the progress (even if it is VERY SMALL). You are doing great!
I was a bit moody yesterday, things did not go so well (I thought, because I can be a drama queen). And to be honest with you, I just wanted to go home and go to bed and do nothing. Just sleep and not think about anything. So I did. Then I woke up from my nap feeling the same as before.
How can I get rid of this… Okay, lets hit the gym, I thought. And I did! I went for 1h30m to the gym. I did different exercises and did ran and cycled and all the happy stuff you can do in the gym. And still after one hour of running and cycling I was JUST NOT FEELING GOOD.
HOW ON EARTH CAN I REMOVE THIS FEELING. AND WHY AM I FEELING LIKE THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE?!
When I dropped that question, all my bad feelings dropped with it as well. There was nothing I had to worry about. When I got home I made a list of all the GOOD things during that day.
- I my had my 1L lemon water intake
- I went to the gym for 1h30m
- I had a great dinner
- My sister made me laugh
- My skin looked more clear today
- I cleaned my bed sheet and room
- I felt really good and healthy in my own body
- I have food, a bed to sleep in and a warm house
- The stars looked nice and bright when I looked up
What an amazing list, what a blessing to be alive!
What was I worrying about again?!
Moral of the story: two things, ONE COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, TWO THERE IS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT!
