The end of June and the first half of 2015 will be here in less than two weeks, and the common phrase in passing conversation will most likely be some form of: "I can't believe how fast this year is passing by." If you're an entrepreneur who set professional goals at the beginning of the year, you may be celebrating, contemplating or panicking right now. If you're in that first category, congratulations and be sure to keep your focus and finish the year strong. If you're in the second or third categories, know that there is always hope to reassess and accomplish your goals.
You have to give yourself a little grace from time to time. Don't let failure to accomplish a few things dissuade you from creating new goals for the second half of 2015. Who said resolutions had to always be made at the start of the new year? As with any sort of goal setting, be sure to write down a list of major tasks and minor steps to make each one a reality. Being able to gauge your progress encourages you when you seem worried about what to do next. If your goals seem too general, aim to make them time-specific such as marketing initiatives for the summer or sales quotas for the fall. Set your deadlines with the holiday season in mind. Reward yourself and your team when major strides have been made to crossing something off the list as well as the moment of accomplishment.
