It’s half-way through the year, how are you growing? How are you progressing in your career? How are you hitting your goals in your business? Are you happy with where you are right now?
As we move forward to the second half of the year, I challenge you to do three things to help you grow into the level you need to be in: reflect, relearn, and recast.
Reflect. We do not learn from experience; we learn from reflecting about our experience. Revisit what you have done so far. Compare this with your goals or targets. Are you on track? Have you exceeded your targets?
Ask yourself these questions: What have I done well? Where should I improve on? What should I stop doing? What should I continue doing? What should I start doing?
Relearn. Learning and relearning should never stop. Look at the gaps that you may have identified during your reflection. In what areas do you need to grow in? Are you an employee, do you think you need to work on your productivity? Are you looking for a job, do you think you need to enhance your skills? Are you a student, do you think you need to get more learning outside the classroom? Are you in business, do you think you need to up your game in doing your marketing?
If your answers to the above questions are yes, then you have to do something about it. Read a book. Go for schooling. Attend a seminar. Speak to a coach or mentor. Ask for guidance. Meet people who are in the path you want to take or at the level you want to grow into. Join the Growth Summit this July 13!
Recast. The start of the second half of the year is a chance to recast your action plans. Combine the result of your reflection and relearning to recast what you need to do.
If you made mistakes in the past, this is the time to correct them. If you made less effort in the past, this is the time to exert more effort. If you did well on certain things, this is the time to do them again with a renewed and rejuvenated spirit.
There are six months to go before the year ends. With proper reflection, relearning, and recasting, you can still make this year your best year ever!
