It’s February. How are those goals coming?

A red and white target with a red dart hitting the center.We start out with a bang in January, all revved up by the sparkly clean untouched New Year.

I don’t know about you, but by the middle of February, I’m usually a bit stunned by (a) how can it already be mid-February?, and (b) yikes. I’m not getting done what I meant to get done.

This year, I’m happy to say, is different. Why? Because I took a hard, long, and very honest look at where and why things went astray last year. And that led me to realize what I need to stop doing so I can start doing the things that matter – the things that have a real impact on what I want to achieve.

But enough about me!

What about you?

What are you stopping so you can start to focus on what matters?

Where are you taking greater responsibility for your career and your goals and your life?

Because no matter how great your support system may be; no matter how wonderful your family is; no matter what a fabulous boss you might have; no matter how loving and enthusiastic your partner may be … in the end, you are the person responsible for what happens in your life.

So … it’s February. How are those goals coming? Are you on track? Do you need help, support, re-commitment, a course correction?

Get what you need. And get going. Because – seriously – no one else is going to do it for you. And you deserve to have what you want and achieve what you dream about.
