2021 is going insanely fast. Six months have already passed by and we are now halfway through the year. That means that it’s time for a mid-year reset, where we will look back at the goals that we have set at the beginning of the year and see if we have made enough progress.

I absolutely love a good old’ mid-year reset, because after doing this, everything feels so fresh, it’s like having a completely clean slate.

So let’s dive into 4 quick things you can do to reset your intentions and get super motivated for the next 6 months of the year.

#1. Reset your motivation

And I don’t know about you, but sometimes those goals that you have set for yourself 6 months ago, might feel a little ‘outworn’ if you understand what I mean. They might not inspire and excite you anymore as much as they used to. And if your goals don’t excite you and inspire you, then it’s damn difficult to have the motivation to continue to show up and work on them every single day.

So what can we do in order to make sure our goals feel fresh and exciting again?

2 things.

One. We can go back to the drawing board and remind ourselves why these goals were that important to us in the first place.

  • In what way is this goal contributing to a certain lifestyle that we desire?
  • How will reaching this goal deeply impact our life?
  • in other words: what is your why?

Because without having a strong why, having a long-term goal is kind of pointless because you will entirely have to depend on self-discipline, and not on motivation and inspiration.

So, go ahead and take a notebook and journal about the above questions.

Two. What also can help is breaking down your goal into smaller goals, or phases, so that you can start another mini-goal or phase every single month. Starting a new mini goal or phase also gives you this ‘clean sleaty’ feeling and will make you feel like you’re actually making progress.

#2. Analyze and reflect about your progress during your mid-year reset

The next thing that you can do during your mid-year reset is, without judging yourself (!), noticing how far you have come with these goals. This step isn’t about blaming ourselves (or others) for not having made the progress that we would have wanted. It’s just about noticing the progress that we have made and being aware of what caused any delays in reaching those goals. Because when you are aware, you can anticipate this from happening again next time.

You’re like a doctor, you are just diagnosing what happened, so we can ‘heal’ this issue in the future.

  • Are you on track for the goals that you have set for yourself at the beginning of the year? Are you ‘behind’ on any of your goals?

  • Is there a particular project or goal that you have prioritized over the others?

  • Is there a goal that is taking up way more time than you initially anticipated?

  • Did you procrastinate on a goal because it gave you anxiety?

  • Did you realize that a project or goal in reality isn’t really aligned with your why, so you decided to take another direction?

  • Did you come across another amazing project that just seemed a better fit at that moment?

  • Did you have difficulties getting work done, because other parts of your life were demanding a lot of your attention and energy?

So try to not put yourself down or beat yourself up about not having made the progress you would have wanted. Be gentle and compassionate with yourself. It’s OK. Life just doesn’t always provide perfect circumstances, it’s a rollercoaster sometimes.

The most important thing is that you have made progress, as little as it might be and that you have cultivated this self-awareness so that you can prevent this from happening again in the future.

#3. Celebrate your wins

This mid-year reset isn’t supposed to be only about the negative, so also focus on the positive. Celebrate the progress that you have made!

  • Which goals did you accomplish?
  • Which obstacles did you overcome?
  • What lessons or new skills did you learn in the past 6 months?

Take a moment to be genuinely proud of yourself and give yourself a pat on the back. You did it! And it might not have been easy. 🙂

#4. Create an action plan

Now that you have reset your motivation, analyzed your progress, and celebrated your wins, the next thing we are going to do during our mid-year reset is making an action plan for the upcoming 6 months.

  • So, first take a moment and write down the goals that deserve more attention, focus and energy from your side. And I want you to truly commit and prioritizing these in the months to come
  • Are there any changes you want to introduce in your business so that you prevent any more delays? (for example, setting boundaries, protecting your working time, avoiding shiny object syndrome,…)
  • What actions are you going to take so that reaching your yearly goals just become inevitable?

Congrats! You did it!

You completed the mid-year reset and you can now start the second half of this year fresh, motivated and excited!
