It seems like only yesterday that we welcomed 2021, but in the blink of an eye, 6 months have already passed! As you move forward into the second half of the year, let’s take a look at what you’ve accomplished so far and plans of looking forward.
1. Count your wins
Life has been undeniably harder over the last year, so why not give yourself some credit for the things that you’ve successfully accomplished? Celebrating your wins is one of the best ways to keep yourself motivated as you push through the rest of the year.
2. Evaluate your progress
You probably have some goals you haven’t started working on yet, so this is a great time to get the ball rolling. For instance, if one of your goals is to hydrate more, you could invest in a new Thermos® Tumbler to inspire you to drink more water.
3. Acknowledge your productivity strengths
It’s not always so easy to be super productive when you’re working from home. So, if you have developed habits that are helping you with your productivity, don’t forget to acknowledge them. Identifying your strengths can be a great way to keep striving forward with confidence, because they are already skills you have!
4. Acknowledge your weaknesses
While it’s important to evaluate your strengths, you should also recognise the areas keeping you from achieving your goals. This will help you improve yourself and move forward in accomplishing more through the rest of the year.
Now that you’ve looked back on what you’ve achieved so far, here are some things that you can look forward to over the next 6 months:
1. Look at what still can be accomplished
Find out what still needs to be done and get things going. Perhaps you would like to take up more cooking at home. If so, why not invest in your own Thermos® Shuttle Chef® for easier meal preparation and to inspire you to get started.
2. Re-align your goals
This is the perfect time to re-align your goals and see if they still fit within your values and principles. Rank them in order of importance and discover whether they still align with your 2021 outlook. This will help fuel your drive to accomplish the things that you want for the remaining months of the year.
3. Put your goals on paper (if you haven’t already)
There’s just something about writing down your goals and objectives that make achieving them more feasible. If you did this at the beginning of the year, refer back to them and make any necessary edits. If you haven’t made your list yet, there’s no time like the present! You can even create a calendar create a calendar that will allow you to keep your objectives moving, like using more Thermos® Go Green series products to live a greener lifestyle.
4. Follow the SMART approach
You need to make the last 6 months of the year count, and you can only make this possible with a proper system. The SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-sensitive) approach could work wonders for you. Give it a try.
The next 6 months will fly by, so the best you can do is proactively work your way to achieving what you want to accomplish by the end of the year.
Whether it’s becoming more productive at work, living a healthier lifestyle or practising a more environmentally conscious way of life, you can achieve anything if you put your mind and heart to it.
