Time really does seem to run away with me these days.. it’s been a while since I blogged. I hope I haven’t become one of those people who writes “oh hi, it’s been a while”, every time I post (scrolls down)…shit.
We’ve just passed the half way point in the year and hooray! ..before you know it you’ll be sitting in front of the TV stuffing your face with After Eights, refusing to move as that’s the perfect spot for you to watch the Christmas special of Eastenders.
Mid June is the time of year most of us will reflect on the new year goals we set, checking wether we are on track to achieving them.. whether they be personal, family or business related.
I get so confused by british weather. I dont know if that’s it’s irregularity, or my old age? As I too reach my mid (well, quater) point, I am dumbfounded by the smallest of details in life that I am only just now discovering, and theres is so much I am yet to do, learn and achieve.
On recent travels, adventures, I have been exercising a technique called Plan, Do and Review. It’s a strategy taught now in schools.. (wish they had it in my day- although I reckon they had something similar but I just didn’t attend enough lessons to notice!)
- Plan: Develop strategies to improve performance.
- Do: Take action to improve performance.
- Review: Evaluate and improve performance.
In it’s simplest form- a system to make sure that before we reach our end point/goal/result/time that we stop, check to making sure we’re on track. I don’t know how i’ve managed to get through life without recognising this before now, perhaps I just dived in, gave it my all and imagined in my head i’de already achieved.
Plan, do, review.
Sounds so simple, doesn’t it?
Just wanted to share that with you.
