Half-Year Resolutions

A dog’s New Year’s Resolution:

I will not chase that stick unless I

actually see it leave his hand!


It’s Not Too Late!

Did you make any New Year’s Resolutions this year?

How are you doing with those goals?

If you have already accomplished your New Year’s

Resolutions, then first of all, Congratulations

(and thanks for making the rest of us look bad)!

And second, get to work on your next set of goals!

For the rest of us turtles, it’s not too late…

to make some Half-Year Resolutions!

 Half-Year Resolutions

If you read my previous post this year about

how to make your New Year’s Resolutions stick,

you know that one of the things you need to do is

have special “Quarterly Meetings of the Board” to

review the progress you’ve made toward your goals,

and fine-tune your plan to achieve them.

So, here we are in the middle of Spring, and

it’s going to officially be Summer on June 20,

(for inquiring minds who want to know),

which means we are approaching mid-year.

That means you are now officially overdue for

a Board Meeting (or 2)…send out a memo!

No Sweat…

There are probably a ton of reasons why you

haven’t been able to get to those goals yet…

time, finances, crises and chaos, and don’t

forget to factor in forgetting and a serious lack

of motivation!  No matter…you still have 7

months to achieve some important goals

and make headway on the rest.  No sweat.

How exactly are we going to do this?

Take May to make a plan

Why not take the month of May to make

a plan about what goals are most important

to you right now…the ones you would like

to see major progress made on before you

get around to toasting the New Year in 2013?

Then you have 6 more months, starting in

June, to get working on your plan.

It beats wondering where this year went.

Making headway…

The summer months may actually afford

you more flexibility and time to be able to

make some headway on your goals than the

winter and spring months have.  You might

be out of school, or work is slower, or you can

just think a little more clearly with major

beginning-of-the-year projects out of the way.

Let’s get it started!

So look at your New Year’s Resolutions and see

what you still need to work on…or start on.

Or set 1-2 major goals that you know would make

you so proud of yourself if you made headway on

them before year’s end.  And get started now.

Half Year Resolutions are just as good as

New Year’s Resolutions.

In fact, they are far better than any New Year’s

Resolution that is never achieved.  🙂



One Response to “Half-Year Resolutions”

  • I’m new here. Love what you have going. I love making goals. I usually make too many but I adjust and never judge myself anymore. This way, I am highly motivated but never fail! It think I renew my goals weekly. But I am a list person!
