We Are Half Way There

Below is a review of the past six months. This week’s lesson is simply to take some time and review the previous six months’ topics. See what stands out to you. Make two kinds of notes: First, reflect upon what is working—what improvements and changes you are developing and seeing in your life.

Second, see what hits you right between the eyes—areas you see that you can grow or improve upon. Make notes as to which one or two things you can, or should, start doing to help bring more awareness and change. Finally, ask yourself, “Am I heading in the right direction?”

Here’s a formula you can follow to stay on pace:

– Take care of the daily to-do’s.
– Invest time (average 5 to 10 percent) on a regular basis toward future planning and projects.
– Invest time (2 to 5 percent) cleaning up old projects or messes.
– Finish strong and don’t create new messes that will need to be cleaned up in the future.

If you follow this formula, you might find yourself getting a little frustrated in the short term—especially if you have a number of messes to clean up—because it might seem like progress is slow. But, over a given period of time, you will start to see amazing progress on many levels. Your daily consistency will keep you on schedule with your projects and deadlines; your future planning will soon find itself reaping present rewards; your commitment to cleaning up messes will begin saving you time as you become more organized—mentally and in your workspace—and your efforts to finish strong and not make new messes will continually help to create more time for higher-end duties.

As with any long-term plan or goal, including The N.J.W Blog, results start to emerge slowly, but, like a snowball going downhill, they will increase rapidly the longer you consistently invest in them.
