This moment of panicked realisation (it's almost June!) is an opportunity to take stock of how your goals for this year are going. Or not.
What's that you say? You have no defined goals, or the ones you have just aren't workin' for you? Well, there's no better time than the present to decide what you really want out of life - and I don't just mean that you prefer your eggs hard-boiled or your morning latte made on skim, three-quarter strength, and extra hot (oh - sorry, that's me!).
I'm talking about what really matters to you, what keeps you awake at night (aside from heartburn!), what you'll regret not doing when your time comes to leave this world for the next.
Sure, it might be easier to follow the crowd and plan to make it to the top in your chosen career, retire before you're thirty (or forty, or...), and have a house full of shiny things.
But will the traditional success paradigm really make you happy?
As we approach mid-year, take a moment out of your day to reflect on these few questions:
1. What would I miss most about my life if it was gone?
2. What makes me smile?
3. If I knew the world would end tomorrow, what would I regret not having done?
4. What's stopping me from making steps to start (or finish) it now?
I'd love to read your answers, either in the comments below or on Facebook.
With some honest assessment and planning (even baby-steps), the second half of your 2014 will be infinitely more rewarding, intentional, and values-oriented. Go for it!
