Where has 2015 gone? We’re nearly six months in already, which means that there are six months left to achieve our business goals.
I just finished The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. One quote in particular stuck with me, and by stuck with me, I mean that I quote it to myself daily.
The days are long, but the years are short.
We can plug away at each day’s to-do list, eat, sleep, and repeat, and lose sight of the “why” behind it all. We forget to challenge ourselves. We forget to celebrate. We forget to savor.
That’s why I’m lovingly reminding you to take a second look at your goals. Ask yourself hard questions. Celebrate your wins lavishly. (This doesn’t mean you need to spend a lot of money, but celebrate yourself the way you would celebrate a loved one who accomplished something amazing.) You may need to scrap your goals and start from scratch. Maybe you just need to tweak your goals.
The important thing is that you do it! Live out each day in pursuit of your goals so that the cumulative effect is a year that is worth celebrating. It’s tiring, but the results are oh so fulfilling.
