Do you ever wonder how many times should you look at your goals? Well honestly, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer and it will vary depending on your goals, and your circumstances.
But I will be honest that looking at your goals on a daily basis can help to keep them top of mind and motivate you to take action. Even if it’s just for a few minutes, taking some time each day to review your goals can help you to stay on track.
For some creatives that might be a little too much and doing a weekly or a monthly check in and and review is what helps because you have a chance to assess your progress, identify any challenges, and make necessary adjustments.
There are also quarterly reviews that are great for those long-term goals and make sure that you’re still aligned with your bigger picture. This is also a good time to celebrate your successes and recommit to your goals for the next quarter.
And if you don’t do anything else, a yearly reviews is a good time to assess your overall progress and make any major changes to your goals for the next year. This is also a good time to set new goals for yourself.
But how do you know what will work best for you? Experiment and see what works best for you. If you find that you’re getting overwhelmed by checking in on your goals too often, try reducing the frequency. On the other hand, if you find that you’re losing track of your goals, try increasing the frequency.
