The quarter points of the year (March, June, September and December) mark 4 natural points to take a step back and review your life and goals. Quarter point reviews are in everyday parlance in the corporate world- 12 weeks make very good accountability points, and a great project timeframe. But these quarter points also happen to align with the equinoxes and solstices too, and doing a review that takes inspiration both from the corporate world and from mother nature makes for a wonderfully meaningful and seasonal deep dive.
Whether you made your goals in January of this year, or long ago, this seasonal shift is such a wonderful, ripe time to check in on and nurture the goals you made , and plant some new ones too.
I’m a planner, a list maker. I always have been. I adore new stationary and apps and am a hardened journaller. My dreaming and planning process has had the most incredible affect in my life; my mental health, my marriage, my work. This was a personal process for 8 years before I released it more widely and since then it has helped hundreds of others too. As part of my life book planning and review process, I check on my goals at each quarter point and celebrate/adjust/park/pivot them, as necessary.
I have been going through a quarter point review myself, as have alumni of the Life Book e course and as usual it has been incredibly revealing. I am both where I thought I was in some areas and definitely not in others! And that’s cool. There is no pressure, no beating myself up, in this process. In fact I have been celebrating my wins- something I wouldn’t think to do without this check in. I have stuck to my self care goals amazingly well. I’m running 2-3 times a week and have been prioritising sleep and rest too. My content goals were a little too ambitious so I’m rolling them over to this quarter! I’m feeling focussed and clear about what I want to do next and generally pumped! I have created a freebie for you to guide you through the process, so whether you made a goal in January or further back and you’d like to check in with it, this works.
I made a free kind goal checker guide for you!
I have created a totally free kind goal checker guide which covers how to check in on a goal you made in the past (whether that was January or otherwise) and gives guidance on doing your own soulful quarter point review of your life. Aaaand I also made a printable too which you can get by filling in the form below.
My whole thing with this guide, and the wider Life Book process of which it's a part, is offering ourselves radical kindness. So much goal setting talk is based on beating ourselves up, and lacks a wider look at our bigger picture and our “why”.
But my process Is kind, flexible, dream based but ultra ultra practical.
Get yours below.
It looks a little something like this. (am I proud of myself for creating these graphics?! Hell yes. I have overcome so many tech hurdles in the creation of this offering! Go dyslexic meeeeee. )
Happy Goal checking.
I’d love to know how you get on!
