358. Checking In and Recommitting to Your Goals

Jul 18, 2022 | 0 comments

It’s the time of year when individuals or organizations look at the goals they set for themselves and wonder whether they set the right goals or if the strategies they implemented to achieve them are falling short.

A goal should stretch you, which means you may not have absolute clarity on how to achieve it when you start the year. You may want to stick with that goal and challenge yourself to find new ways to achieve it. Yet as the year goes on you’ll learn more about yourself, or perhaps life circumstances will change—we’re all familiar with that over the past few years. So when is it okay to make adjustments to our goals?

We’re going to discuss what to do when your goal no longer feels achievable, or how to move forward when circumstances change. We’ll also talk about when it may be time to reexamine your goals and make some adjustments to be more in line with your current circumstances.

If you’re interested in setting up some accountability within your relationship, we are hosting our annual Couples Goal Setting Retreat to get aligned on what success looks like and how to keep each other on track towards achieving them. Visit the1thing.com/events to learn more.

  • The importance of reviewing your goals often
  • Having a conversation around your goals
  • Finding accountability for your goals
  • Giving yourself permission to make changes
