You set a big goal or resolution. You’re passionate about the possibilities.
Then, life happens.
You look up, and it’s six months later. You’ve made some progress, but not nearly what you imagined.

Setting Goals for the Second-Half Of Your Year
Is it June already? I can’t believe we’re almost at the half year mark.
Are you on track with your goals?
Today, three simple keys for setting goals that make the rest of your year the best of your year.
1. Review your goals.
Begin by asking yourself three questions: what worked, what didn’t, what did I learn?
This is not about beating yourself up. It’s about gaining clarity to move forward. Take time to celebrate the wins and learn the lessons.
Things change. Some of your goals need a tune-up. Others need to go. Don’t be afraid to scrap a goal that no longer makes sense.
2. Reorder your priorities.
What’s important now? Which opportunities and relationships matter most?
It’s important to make room in your life today for your future.
Ever notice how much stuff you accumulate in your home or office? You don’t realize it until it’s time to move to a new place. It’s the same way in life. The physical and mental clutter becomes an invisible chain around your neck. It weighs you down, adding unnecessary stress to your life. The commitments that seem like a good idea in the moment end up stealing time away from what matters most.
It’s time to press the pause button, reconnect with your larger vision, and complete or clear out anything that’s in the way.

3. Revamp your plan.
Now that you’ve cleared the way for a fresh perspective, it’s time for a meeting with your heavenly CEO. I call this “prayer planning your life.”
Remember the example of David in the Bible? He inquired of the Lord for plans and strategy. The same God who helped David cares deeply about your daily life and battles too. But we must invite Him in.
I encourage you to schedule time this month to review your goals, reorder your priorities and revamp your plan for the second half of the year.
