Has Time sped up its clock or is it just me feeling the urgency of the days?
I look at my calendar and I’m really surprised to see that this week is the last week of June! And July will be upon us this Friday! The mid-year mark is almost over and we’re well on our way to the second half of 2011.
I just realized this when I read Janet Callaway’s blog post recently and after reading Jayne Kopp’s recent respite.
How’s everybody holding up?
I know of some friends, especially in the sales industry, who’re busy trying to reach their quotas this early to ensure a stress-free holiday vacation in December.
How about you in the online marketing industry?
Do You Have Mid-Year Goals?
Me, I don’t have one. I keep more of a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly goal. I just feel that my long-term goals should be compartmentalized into shorter ones. Mid-year assessment, maybe, not mid-year goals; just to check whether I’m still on track and probably take a breather if necessary.
Is anybody experiencing any mid-year crisis? I hope not!
The last thing that we need to have at the close of the first half of the year is to start unraveling. We may be down in the dumps at some point but we just need to re-energize ourselves a bit and get on with our long-term goals!
Did You Know That A Crisis Is A
Situation That Allows Us To Make
Quick Judgments Or Decisions
Based On Our Set Values?
So, if and when you are in some kind of mid-crisis, then, just let it be, not resisting the current, and let your values guide you into making the right decision!
When you’re faced head on with something that needs quick thinking, I believe that you’ll eventually know what to do. Perhaps it may not be the wisest decision that you could make but at that moment, it will be the best that you could do to address the situation as it unfolded.
My point being is, mid-year goals or not, let us not be too harsh and exacting with ourselves all the time.Let’s take time out and enjoy the sun. Let’s enjoy life with all its many imperfections. Learn from it and then move on with a fresh start.
