Finances – Mid Year Check-In

Can you believe we are officially now halfway through 2015? Yes, time flies! Now that we are halfway through the year, this is an excellent time to do a progress check for those goals you set earlier in the year. The days seem to fly by fast, so it can be difficult to keep track of things. A mid-way mark acts as a reminder to keep pushing towards your goals and to never give up. It can also act as a way to view your accomplishments and see how much further you have to go.

Dust off that crinkled up piece of paper you wrote your new year’s resolutions on and take some time to reflect. Even if you are busy, make the time to do this. You will thank yourself later down the road! Resolutions are often viewed as useless because people don’t stick to them. Let’s change this way of thinking and make those resolutions (or goals – whatever you chose to call them) valuable to our lives and progression.

After looking at your resolutions/goals, below are a couple of questions you might want to use to start the evaluation process:

  • How far have you come since setting this goal?
  • Are you where you thought you would be?
  • Has your goal changed since it was set?
