Maybe you don’t want to think about the year being half over. After all, if it’s half over and you haven’t done enough to secure your goals, the ones you swore yourself you’d achieve last New Year’s Eve, then you’re just setting yourself up for failure.
On the other hand, if it’s half over, then by definition, there’s a solid half yet to be lived. You can do a lot in that time. It’s a matter of your attitude and perspective.
The classic, “is glass half empty or half full” scenario messes with our psyche. It’s both. Duh.
But, we feel compelled to choose sides. If it’s full, we’re an optimist. If it’s empty, we’re a pessimist. Bill Cosby’s grandmother provided a clue to the real answer. She said it depended on if you were drinking or pouring.
So how was your first half? Have you been consuming a lot and now things (energy, time, money, patience) are running low, or have you been providing resources (time, talent, treasure) to others, quenching their thirst?
Your goals need your attention, otherwise they would be called your wishes. The difference is goals require effort and attention. Is yours satiated or parched?
