This is the ideal time of the year to think back to where you started and how far you have come in the past (10) ten months; both personally and professionally to remind yourself of the progress you have made. Essentially, you don’t have to wait until December or January to evaluate where you are.
Remember, the point of setting goals isn’t to successfully complete tasks that you blindly set yourself without understanding how they fit into the big picture, nor is it about maximizing the accomplishment of trivial activities. What is critical in goal setting is the ability to master the right kinds of goals – the ones that align strongly with your priorities and could propel your profession, business and life forward.
So, instead of reviewing your goals once a year; do quarterly reviews because it is important to regularly step back and review progress. By so doing, you become responsive to your environment by adapting to changes that may occur quickly.
