Most people set goals for the year. Nobody really aims to finish by October 31st or November 15.
No, most people set goals to be completed by December 31st
How about you? Did you set any clear, specific, written goals this year for what you wanted to sell, earn or accomplish?
It’s time to pull out your goals and see how you’re doing.
We’re Halfway There
Welcome to July. We’re “smack in the middle” of the calendar.
According to Dictionary.com, “halfway” means “not complete” or “in the middle.”
Synonyms could be betwixt and between, center, centermost, central, equidistant, median, mid, middlemost, midway and smack in the middle just to name a few.
Six months are in the books and we have six months to go.
How are your results in relation to your plan? Are you ahead of pace, on pace or falling behind where you hoped to be at this point?
Halfway done could be good if you were talking about:
- Pulling weeds
- Middle School orchestra concerts or choir performances
- A long distance drive
- A colonoscopy
Halfway done could be bad if you were talking about:
- A hot fudge sundae
- A Tom Petty concert
- A season of 24 with Keifer Sutherland
- college football season reaching November
- Your child’s pre-college years

Will Act II, Scene I start out the way you need it to in order to captivate the audience?
Head out and start warming up. They are about to blow the whistle to get this second half started.

It’s time to build relationships, solve problems, have fun.
And finish strong!
