Personal Mid-Year Review

 

I recently made a list of 9 Questions to ask yourself for a Personal Mid-Year Review.  It’s been amazing to see how this year is shaping up with the things I’m learning and the memories I’m making. Now to figure out how I can finish the year strong.

Even though Mid-Year is actually June this is the first time I’ve had a chance to really sit down and reflect. Have you ever done a Mid-Year Review?

I used to begin the year with ideas, goals or resolutions if you will, but never thought about accessing half way through to see if I kept up with what I set. Probably because all those said ideas, goals and resolutions are out the window by the beginning of February.

Areas I’m looking at during my Personal Mid-Year review:

Financially, Spiritually, Mentally, Physically and Relationally.

The questions may not apply to every category. You decide which ones you’d like to use.
