In January, I set some goals for my business. And like you, I woke up this morning realizing that half the year is over. As a coach I decided to reflect on my business progress using a tool that I often encourage my clients to use. So before you head out for a well deserved summer vacation (mid-year break), I invite you to reflect on where you are at with your business goals this year.

The model is a simple evergreen model of change management referred to as the Stop-Start-Continue model. This is an easy way to reflect on all any aspect of your business. Simply choose an aspect of your business and ask yourself the following questions:

  1. What do I /we need to stop doing in this area to reach the goal?
  2. What do I/we need to start doing in this area to reach the goal?
  3. What do I/we need to continue to do in this area to reach the goal?

Once you explore the questions, it is time to take action on what you discover. I hope you give it a try and that it leads to business success.

Enjoy your mid year review and your mid-year break!
