Yep, here we are.  Getting ready to close out 2019.  Well, not really.  Actually we still have the last quarter of the year in front of us.  How do we make the most of it so that when we are ringing in the new year we are rejoicing over the last one?  Glad you asked because that is what we are covering in this episode.  I’ll be walking you through the goal-setting process so that you can finish the year strong!

Action Items and Tips From the Show

It’s easy to think about 4th quarter when it comes to our jobs but do we think about it personally?  Now is a great time to reflect back on the year so far to evaluate where you are and where you want to go between now and the end of the year.  Start by asking yourself some of these questions. 

  • What goals did you set at the begining of the year?  
  • What was your word for the year?

Once you start to remember those intentions that you set for yourself, next start to think of the progress that you have made so far.

  • What have you done?  
  • What progess have you made toward your goals so far?
  • How has your “one word” shown up in the year so far?

Maybe a lot has changed since you set those goals.  Or maybe you have already achieved them.  Either way, you might find yourself asking….

  • Is this still your goal?

Not sure what your goals should be as you finish the year?

How do you want to feel in your life?  When it’s the end of 2019, you are celebrating Christmas and it’s that still quite week between Christmas and New Years and you are reflecting back on 2019 and looking forward to 2019….how do you want to feel?  What is important to you? What are your values? What do you want your life to stand for?

How does that look in your faith, marriage, parenting, career, home, finances, health, friendships?  Make that your vision for that area of your life.  

What can you do in the next 90 days to get closer to that vision?  Let that be your 4th quarter goal.

Caution:  If your vision is a life change from where you are now, don’t go after more than one.
