Do you need to make any changes?
With the Coronavirus and BLM movement taking up the headlines and our focus so far in 2020, I nearly forgot that the year is more than half way complete. I always do a mid-year self-assessment and try to make necessary changes. Do I need to make some changes? What is working well so far? In the #CJJblog this week, I give you some questions you can ask yourself as a mid-year check in with yourself. Enjoy!
- What is going well? This is an easy question to ask, but tough question to answer honestly. Don’t sugarcoat anything and be honest with yourself. For me, my family relationships are fantastic, I’m listening to more podcasts, and going for a morning walk every day.
- What can you change or pivot? Change and pivot are two very different phrases. Some things might need tweaking, while others you should scrap altogether.
- What are you thankful for? This can be about anything. Work, personal, money, whatever you are thankful for this year. I am thankful for my health, family, and being able to continue to grow my mind.
- What bad habits have you developed? Don’t hold back. Consider changing or eliminating anything that you deem a bad habit.
- What is a new project you can start? Are you looking for a new hobby? Learning something new? For me, I am writing my second book, which has kept me plenty busy during this pandemic.
- What can you do to help the world be in a better place? This will be different for everyone based on their personal situation, but you can always try to be vocal and share positive content on social media channels. Use your voice!
- What should you keep doing? What are some things you would like to continue to focus on throughout the rest of the year? For me, I want to keep exercising, meditating, reading, and praying.
- What is a challenge you can set for yourself? Think about your life three to five years from now. How do you want it to look?
