Evaluating Your Progress – Video

Yesterday I watched the following video from Rich Schefren. Rich does a daily video that I try and catch on his Facebook fanpage and he comes up with some great advice regularly. Anyway, I’ll cut the waffle and let you watch the video!

Using the method Rich describes:

  • Three years ago – I was a temporary worker in a factory, as the recession threatened my job.
  • Two years ago – I was unemployed.
  • A year ago – I was a temporary worker at the same factory again.
  • Present day – I am a permanent member of staff at the factory.

Importantly, I am working towards my horizon. My current horizon is to become self-employed.

It feels so far away at times. I know it will happen, but I just can’t say when! It is frustrating, scary and makes me anxious at times. It also makes me feel excited, that I am achieving more and happier about where my life is going. As my girlfriend keeps telling me, I am on a journey!

Please share any tips below about how you evaluate your progress.

    Hi Stuart,
    In a world of everyone wanting more, we tend to forget look how far we have come! Now and then we all need to hit the pause button!

    Thanks for reminding us!
    Keep going!

    Hi Stuart
    It’s also very important to celebrate all your achievements along the way – no matter how small!

    Good luck with your journey, the destination is definitely worth it;)

    Its good to have goals ..be they life goals, wanting to go on a holiday, even wanting a new bike or computer game.. as they give us the motivation to strive to improve our lives. But if we set them too high and forget the little steps we need to take to reach that goal we may find ourselves getting disappointed and frustrated. Then its good to look back and review what has been achieved along the way. Sometimes the achievements are unexpected ones that were never a part of the original goal .. bonus ! 🙂
