Isn’t crazy how this is the last week of the first half of 2017 (well now, the first week of the second half)?! As they say, time flies; no lies there at all. I always hear people say this year after year, how times is moving faster than it did in the past but with that realization, I wonder if we’re really doing anything differently.
I’m pretty sure we all had a vision for what our ideal 2017 was going to look like, achievements to be made, changes to be done or even milestones to reach. I think this is the perfect time to take a step back and look at where we all are and ask some tough questions. What have I done correctly? Where do I need to improve? Is this really the right path for me? Am I simply wasting my time.
If you’re one of the lucky ones, who’ve done well, celebrate your (small) victories! Enjoy the moment, don’t be too quick to move on to the next thing without acknowledging how far you’ve come. Or the flip side, if you’ve not made progress or worse, seem to have regressed, don’t beat yourself up! Wallowing in self pity wouldn’t do you any good. It might seem bleak right now but it’s important to just stand up and get moving! You’ll only feel worse if at the end of the year you’re still in the same spot!
I love this quote: you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take
In a nutshell, I guess what i’m trying to say is: Reflect. Keep Moving. Take the shots.
I hope at the end of the year we’re all in an even happier place!
