Is Your Heart In It?

With June being the 6th month of the year, it is the perfect time to reflect on where you have been, where you are going and anything new that has cropped up that was unexpected?

If you are a solo business owner, this exercise can help you be sure you are on track to accomplish your goals for this year (and beyond).

If you have a team that you work with, its a great time to check in and see what is happening with their projects & their goals from a broader perspective.

After all this reflection and checking in, you may need to do some course correction.
Course correction looks like this:

  • reset of timelines or deadlines
  • juggling people resources to meet the needs of the project
  • determining which items need to 'fall off' the list to make room for new things
  • looking at your priorities and aligning (or re-aligning) them
Why do you need to do this?
You need to understand if your heart is still in it.  I know that our minds (and our bank accounts) drive a great deal of what we do.  But what is the point of doing it if our hearts don't align?  

It's gut-check time.
Do you want to end 2015 with your goals accomplished, a huge smile on your face because you know you have made a difference with the work you love to do?


Do you want to end 2015 with your goals checked off as done?

I know which one I will be working for - with my heart & my head! (funny when this happens, the bank account becomes less of a motivator)
