It’s Halftime 2013! What’s The Score?

July 1, 2013

This is the midway point of 2013 – Halftime.  There is rarely a better time to reflect and make adjustments, if necessary, to prepare for the Second Half.  Here are some questions that I like to ask myself in preparation for H2.

  1. How am I right now – Emotionally, Mentally, Physically and Spiritually?
  2. How was the first half of 2013, in terms of actual Time & Energy invested – across the 7 Life Categories and 43 Timebugs which I track – versus what I had pre-planned?  How does this chart out for the remainder of the year?  What areas require some re-planning?
  3. Did I achieve and engage in that which I had envisioned at the outset of 2013?  Do any of my Goals need to be revised?
  4. Who did I spend time with, and how did that make me feel? [Consider listing out the Top 5 people that you spent time with, and make some quick bulleted noted about those interactions, and your feelings]
  5. Did anything completely new come into my life this Half (ie. new business, a child, new home, new job, lost job, etc) and if so, how has that changed my outlook?

Beyond these questions, I also look at my Timebug data, to evaluate where my Energy has gone and what the major trends were.  There is plenty of time left in 2013, to make this year a successful one, by whatever standards you may have.  Try not to feel bad or self-judgmental if you didn’t do what you had planned to.  Life throws a lot of challenges and curve balls our way.  Adapt, regroup and get yourself mentally ready for a great second half!
