I know for a fact that I can't be the only one feeling this way. Midyear makes everyone feel somewhat stagnant in one way or another - the slow creep of winter settles in, it gets a bit harder to get out of bed in the morning, the first few waves of cold and flu season are doing the rounds. If you're studying, you'll be working hard on getting those last few assessments or exams out of the way, even though the motivation you needed to do that has already well since departed. Unless you're on the other side of the world and you have a fun summer break to look forward to, midyear is kind of a slump. It's like the hump day of the year.

It's also around about the time you begin to lose faith in those well-intentioned goals you set for 2017 at the start of January - and while it feels like you have every reason to bin those goals, midyear is actually more like your saving grace. It's a second chance, and a perfect opportunity to reflect and conduct an honest life audit for yourself to get back on track.

There are a lot of free downloadable worksheets, YouTube videos, and blog posts out there that are great to consult for this kind of thing, and having consumed and used so many of these tools for the past few years, I feel like I've been able to develop my own version that works best for me.

If you don't know where to start, here's a FREE downloadable worksheet I've put together for you to fill out. For it to be most effective, remember to be as honest with yourself as possible when filling it out. Not all of the subsections might apply to you, so certainly customize it to what's suitable for your own situation - and keep it somewhere you can access easily and quickly so that it's not forgotten about!

Part 2 coming next week will focus on REPROGRAMMING to put this Life Audit into practice; because you can plan for weeks straight, but you'll need action to follow up in order to achieve anything.
