Today’s LEADER Tip – before moving on from a project, a close of a sale, a life change, or even a new year (personally or professionally), it is important to reflect on (and be honest about), how you contributed to your goals and objectives throughout the year. It provides focus, clarity and understanding to any doubt, fear, or insecurity you have about achieving or falling short of your goals.
LEADERaction to take:
- in a journal, notebook or on scrap paper – grade yourself on how effective you were this year in both pursuing (A – F) and achieving your goals (A – F)! – Grade of A means you were very effective in both; documenting a goal, defining measurements and due dates, and then taking actions to achieve them. Grade of F means – you never defined any goals and simply let things happen the way they happen (hope)…..
- Then make note of 3 things for each (pursuing goals and achieving your goals) that you could have improved upon or optimized to have higher grades.
- Use this evaluation to decide for yourself what you can and will do differently this coming year.
Consider this your very own performance review that you do JUST FOR YOU….. because if you avoid, ignore or deny the effort (or lack thereof) that you are putting toward YOUR goals – in both your business and life, than you are selling yourself short. Work today to learn who your Trueself really is and find the riches waiting for you tomorrow.
A quick review and assessment of 2014 will help you understand what is needed in 2015 to ensure you do not waste one more day NOT focused on your dreams!!! Remember – you have ONLY 1 life and it goes really fast.
