June is at the brink of my calendar. Its time for some Goal assessment. Am I on track? What is the progress and how much acceleration is needed to achieve them all by the end of this year. Also, have I set them realistically or are they too low to foster my performance?
I studied my excel sheet. Out of 60 things listed in my Goals 2015 Sheet, I was able to give a yes to 13 things , and some of those are a big Yes, meaning I have been tremendous at working on those aspects.
On a remaining 26 things, I have initiated progress. The nature of most of these goals demands me to be either consistent or repetitive at those tasks.
That leaves me on an 21 things I have to mark my progress on. Percentage wise I need to buckle up for 20% of my tasks and gear up on them. Another percentage of 43 needs my constant attention if I have to convert it to a Big Yes on 31st December, 2015.
If I am achieving my goals faster, am not setting them too high. So this calls for a revision of new things I have to do, or those I have adopted.
I have added a few more projects, a few more goals. Increased my reading list to a few more books. The game is to compete with my own self.
To get your hear’s desire re-assess your goals, not just measure them:
Here are top 5 ways you can do it:
- Draw a timeline to things most important to you, or which you should have accomplished by now. Act on them daily, weekly, or as per the routine demands.
- Follow the concept of “Low Hanging Fruits”? Make yourself feel better by accomplishing the easier ones. This would leave you with more time & focus for the core tasks.
- Record your progress so that it motivates you.
- Make the list longer: that is the only way you would run faster and get more competent with yourself. It adds a flavour , a new excitement , a new found love to your yearly goals.
- Strike out the ones you do not need. This does not mean you remove the tough goals out of your list. If certain things are seemingly outdated , tweak them.
