How Accountable Do You Feel for the Choices You’ve Made in 2016?

As we approach the end of the first semester of 2016, let me recommend you review your life results on a year-to-date basis.\r\n\r\nHere are three broad categories of questions you can ask yourself:\r\n\r\n1. What is your level of satisfaction with your life choices?\r\na. Is your life moving in the right direction?\r\nb. Are you happy with your professional choices? Are they producing the expected results?\r\nc. Are you happy with your personal life choices?\r\nd. Is there something in your personal life that may be preventing you from maximizing your professional results? Or vice-versa?\r\n\r\n2. Did you positively influence the lives of people—both personal and professional—who are important to you?\r\na. Key family members and close friends\r\nb. Your employees (if you are a manager), your boss, your co-workers and key customers, business partners and suppliers\r\nc. Your neighbor, who may be less-fortunate\r\n\r\n3. Did you grow any personal capabilities?\r\na. Your physical health\r\nb. Your mental health\r\nc. Your financial health\r\nd. Your spiritual health\r\ne. Your emotional health\r\n\r\nThe answers to these questions will allow you determine if the choices you have made so far in 2016 are aligned with the direction you wish to give to your life. In fact, the choice I am inviting you to make is to determine how accountable you want to be for your life: Do you want to continue living in a “business as usual” mode, or do you want to proactively tackle those areas where you are not posting the kind of progress you want?\r\n\r\nIn my blog entry next Monday, I will cover personal mission statements. Stay tuned!\r\n\r\nPercy M. Cannon\r\nAuthor, Speaker, Consultant, Facilitator & Coach\r\nwww.cannon.consulting
