“One way to keep momentum going is to have constantly greater goals.” —Michael Korda
Woah, where has the year gone?! We can’t believe that we’re halfway through already. However, what we do know is that now is the perfect time for a 6 month review.
As we find ourselves slam bang in the middle of the year, it’s the perfect time to check your goals.
What goals did you set yourself at the start of the year? Have you exceeded them and made more? Or do they need switching up?
Goals are movable and flexible so as long as you are moving in the right direction, know that they aren’t set in stone. We love a review so join us as we discuss how we do our reviews and why we love goal setting. If you need a mid-year boost, we’ve got you!
In this episode, we chat all about how to review your 6 month goals, find out what worked and what didn’t and how to set new goals for the next 6 months.
Tune in to hear:
✨ How we review our goals and the steps we take to achieve them
✨ Why it’s ok if things haven’t gone to plan
✨ How you can switch up your goals to suit the current situation
✨ Why brain dumping is a great way to achieve your goals
✨ How to map out what you want to achieve and how to actually do it
5 Steps to a 6 Month Goal Review
Step 01. Review your Progress
It’s time to look back at the goals that you set at the beginning of the year. Did you commit to them? Have you achieved them? It’s ok if you didn’t or you’re still procrastinating. Life changes fast so your goals can too.
Step 02. Eliminate What’s Not Working
Cut back on what’s not worth your energy and time. Be ok with letting go and releasing the things that just aren’t working towards the bigger picture. Focus your time and energy on what is working and that feels good.
Step 03. Celebrate What’s Working
Take the time to celebrate the small wins and progress that you have made. It’ll give you momentum towards your goals and make you realize the progress that you are making, even if it was unexpected. Remember to celebrate yourself and the people in life too.
Step 04. Brain Dump all of your Ideas
It’s so important to set goals, so take the time to get them out of your head and down onto paper. You are 42% more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down as well as unburdening your mind. When the flow stops, sit with it and wait, know that more will come.
Step 05. Map it Out
Set a new goal and create a new plan. Times have changed and there are always new things coming out. Focus on one project at a time by listing your top 3 goals and then writing underneath each, the next 5 steps to get you there. Get creative with this!

INSIDE THE ELEVATED LIFE CLUB:
We’re all gifted with the same 24 hours in a day. The difference is how we spend it.
The actions we take each day decide if we move toward our dreams and desires or just fall flat.
Right now the world is changing, and even in the chaos, there’s opportunity.
Many of us are now working from home.
Many of us have businesses we want to get off the ground or take to the next level.
But that’s going to take us recommitting to our goals, managing our energy, and developing relentless focus.
Productivity is not about making your todo list longer or working more hours, it’s about becoming radically effective at the things that make a difference and removing the distractions and time-wasters.
