The middle of the year is an excellent time to check in on your career. Understanding whether you are on track to meet your 2023 goals is essential to accomplish your objectives.
Perhaps you reached some goals but not others. Maybe you have goals that no longer fit your career objectives. These are reasons why you should revisit your goals.
Follow these guidelines to check in and determine whether you are on track to meet your 2023 career goals.
Review Your Goals
Look back at your goals for the year. Determine whether they still align with what you want to accomplish.
Take out the goals that you no longer want to attain. Consider replacing them with new ones. Or, you can dedicate more time to achieving your remaining goals.
Determine whether you reached any of your goals. If so, cross them off.
Consider whether you are putting in enough effort to meet your remaining goals. Remember that some may take longer to accomplish than others.
Measure Your Progress
Use your established criteria to measure your progress toward your goals. Comparing where you were when the year began to where you are now shown how far you have come. It also indicates what you still must do to attain your goals.
If you are not on track to achieve your goals, determine why. Find ways to resolve the issues and get back on schedule.
Track Your Goals
Regularly check in to record your progress in reaching your goals. Knowing where you are at in the process helps determine whether you are on track to meet your goals. If you fall behind, you can take action to get to where you should be.
Review Your Action Plan
Focus on whether you are reaching the deadlines included in your action plan. If not, determine why.
Perhaps the deadlines were unreasonable. Or, maybe you require more resources or support to meet them.
Resolve the issues that caused you not to reach your deadlines. Then, reset your timeline.
Celebrate Your Successes
Reward yourself for the goals you accomplished. You might want to go out for dinner or drinks with friends, enjoy a spa service, or plan a weekend trip to somewhere you have been wanting to visit. This provides motivation to continue to attain your goals.
