We’re half-way through 2018...what the whaaaa? While I believe in doing monthly/weekly check-ins with how your goals and biz are doing, I also think it's important to do a bigger-picture review mid-way through the year. Let's tackle that here!
Let's start with the wins...
What amazing things have you achieved so far? Big or small, write them all down.
What did you do to achieve them? That's your success strategy right there! Keep it up in 2018!
Ok, I get it, not everything so far is all wins and celebrations. That's ok, it's good to reflect on those things as well.
What did you want to achieve but didn't? Don’t feel bad about the fact that you didn’t make it happen. I like to remind myself that everything happens in the right way, at the right time, and everything I experience is a stepping stone to get me to where I want to be.
Why didn't you achieve them? If you want, give yourself permission to release the goal, park it to one side.
What were your biggest frustrations and challenges?
Get it all out! Once you know what holds you back and what’s stopping you, you can make a plan of action for how you can make sure it doesn’t hold you back moving forward.
Now let's get down to logistics...
What tools and resources have helped you to succeed this year? Blogs, websites, online tools, training programs etc. – it’s good to make a note of these things so you can continue to use them next year.
Which products/services were your most loved and generated the most revenue?
How much revenue did y our business generate? What were your expenses? What did you pay yourself? What was your net profit?
How is your marketing going this year?
How much has your reach grown so far? Look at your social media and compare your numbers to last year; not only followers but engagement.
Over the past 6 months, what has been the most effective way to attract new clients and raise awareness of your business?
What are the biggest marketing lessons you've learnt?
Take a moment to really think about everything you’ve done this year and celebrate it – the good and the bad.
Make sure you give yourself credit for what you’ve achieved and experienced. You are an amazing person and the very fact that you took the time to do this review means that you’re going to achieve incredible things.
You’re ready to take on the rest of the year and manifest your dreams!
So now, do a little dance, smile, pat yourself on the back and be grateful for all the wonderful things that happened.
