Welcome to the second half of 2017!

Life is an amazing, fabulous, sometimes challenging journey. A journey that rarely takes a straight path. The point of setting goals isn’t to plan your entire life. The goals are a guide to help you find your purpose, align your actions with your priorities and live your best life.

A key to setting goals and accomplishing them is ensuring they’re linked to your purpose, priorities and passions. Priorities change over time – goals change.

Around December 2016 and January 2017 (or maybe earlier) you started thinking about the new year and what you wanted to accomplish. The new year has a way of doing that, it drives a momentum and determination to make changes and create new habits.

Remember that feeling of excitement and energy in the anticipation of endless possibilities of the new year? Motivation was high, your commitment was strong in January.

Now, 7 months later, you’ve accomplished your goals. Or, maybe the excitement and motivation has waned. Or, maybe your goals no longer serve you as they did at the beginning of the year.

This is a great time of year to set aside an hour or so of uninterrupted time to do a mid-year review. Use this time to reflect and evaluate your goals and your progress and to plan for the remainder of the year.

A mid-year goal review can be helpful with:

  • understanding the challenges you faced and how you overcame them
  • identifying potential obstacles they are present in your life that may not have been present in January
  • determining if your goals are still meaningful and relevant
  • determining if your goals align with your priorities
  • identifying if your actions are moving you toward accomplishing your goals
  • making goal changes, if needed, or making changes in how you’re going to accomplish your current goals

  • What are your 3 proudest accomplishments?
  • What goals were a challenge?
  • What opportunities to learn new things did you take advantage of?
  • What goals no longer feel relevant?
  • What mistakes did I make and what did I learn from those mistakes?
  • What areas of strength did I identify from accomplishing my goals?
  • What areas of weakness have I identified?
  • What obstacles did I face during the first 6 months of the year?
  • What behaviors/habits were the most helpful in accomplishing my goals or progressing toward my goals?

  1. It seems I have forgotten to do this one! I think it’s awesome that you shared this guide with us. It’s really nice to see how much you’ve progressed with your goals for the year!

  2. Thanks for sharing this guide! It’s been too long since I’ve sat down and reflected on some of my long-term goals. Self-reflection is key to moving toward our accomplishments. This was really helpful and motivating!

  3. You make some good points here. Self-reflection is so important for keeping ourselves on the right track. Setting goals is meaningless if we don’t follow up with self-reflection. Now (summer) is a good time to reflect and make plans for finishing out the year productively. It’s not too early to begin formulating goals for 2018.

  4. love this idea of recapping and connecting to goals! everything can fly by if we don’t take a moment to recap and appreciate the moments and experiences that are leading us somewhere : )

  5. Really like the mid-year review idea. Really easy to steer the boat out of the channel otherwise.

  6. I can’t believe this is mid-year! Your post is really making me want to apply all your tips to re-evaluate my work, challenges, and goals. Thank you so much for this wonderful post!

  7. This is so great! I am all about goal setting and reflecting. Sometimes I forget to check in, so this is a great reminder. I love your questions.

  8. It’s still so weird to think over half the year’s over already! I really like the idea of a mid-year review though–these questions are great to go over/review!

  9. Great post! I can’t believe we are already midway through the year!
    I really need to sit down and examine my goals for the rest of the year, and maybe set some new ones…
    Thanks for sharing!

  10. I love this! Every year I feel like I’ve let myself (and sometimes others) down when I have not accomplished my goals by a certain date.
    I need to refocus and be thankful for the goals I was able to accomplish and give myself some grace 🙂

  11. Another great post! I love how you focus on encouraging others instead of giving a list of instructions for one thing or another.

  12. Angela @marathonsandmotivation.com says:

    This really is a great idea! I need to take a look back at the goals I set now…I love the quotes 🙂

  13. Thanks for providing these questions. They make mid-year evaluation much easier. I have shared this post on my blog’s Facebook page because it is important to assess where you’re at and where you want to go!

  14. You definitely need to review your goals periodically. Not only because you need to keep yourself accountable but because you need to make sure you are moving things in the right directions.

  15. This is definitely a good idea. Sometimes I get lost in what I’ve achieved and feel like I’m getting nowhere in something, so it’s a good time to reflect and look forward to the rest of the year!

  16. I NEED to sit down and do this. I feel like there are a few goals I set at the beginning of the year that are no longer relevant, and some other things I want to shift to be a priority.

  17. This is so smart. It’s funny as I do this at work, but not in my personal life. Sadly, I can’t even remember what I write in my journal for 2017 goals. Yo have just reminded me to do a check in tonight and make sure I’m on track. Thank you 🙂

  18. This year I’ve made a goal for myself of quitting my job by the 1st of November. It looked achievable at the beginning of the year but we are 3 months away and I don’t know if that was realistic of me!

  19. Love this. I think it’s so important to be mindful of the “why” of the goal. Sometimes our hard work gets lost behind the hustle because we are so focused on ACHIEVING rather than remembering why we wanted to achieve in the first place.
