If you are like most people, you came up with a list of goals for the new year. You may have even called them resolutions. Maybe you are like me and you write them down. Maybe you just keep them in your head. Either way now is the time to reevaluate and revive your goals.

how to reevaluate your goals A Progress Report

Basically, this means you need to assess the progress that you have made so far. Have you crushed it at the gym so now you’ve made your weight-loss goal? Have you had some unexpected expenses and your savings account isn’t as flush as you would like? You need to measure your progress before you can make any adjustments to your goals. But don’t think this is a simple oh I have 10 more pounds to lose and move on from assessing your goals. You need to dig a little bit deeper.

Evaluate Your Methods

Now that you know which goals you are rocking and which could use a bit of help, you now need to think about why. Why are you behind on your savings goals? If you are behind on your goal to have $5000 in your savings and only have $2000, you need to think about why you succeeded at saving some months and not others. Did you plan a no spend month but then have to buy your kid new glasses? Or did you not have a good understanding of your reoccurring expenses? If you want to lose 20 pounds and you’ve already lost 15, then you want to look at the reasons why you have done so well.

Adjust As Needed

At this point, you know how you are doing with your goals, what is working, and what isn’t working. Now you need to adjust as needed. If you are behind on savings, you’ll need to either make up for the difference by saving more each month. Or if saving $500 a month isn’t possible you’ll need to adjust your goal to something more realistic. Maybe you’ve gained some insight and realized one of your goals just isn’t feasible at all right now. That’s fine too.

Become A Goal Getter

Yay, you! I’m betting you are going to achieve all of your goals now that you know how to reevaluate and revive your goals.

    I always forget to re-evaluate my methods. It’s hard to look back and realize you aren’t doing something the smartest way. But, it’s a great way to learn and correct!

    I love this! Most of the time we lost track of our goals and having a progress report will help us to keep track of how close we are to our goals. Having an accountability partner helps too!

    These are all really great tips at adjusting your goals. Sometimes we set a specific time-frame to meet goals and it doesn’t always happen the way we had hoped it would. It’s important to never give up and just re-evalute and revive them. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you for sharing this! We are at the halfway point of the year, so it’s important to go over the goals we set for the new year back in January. I’ve been looking at my progress as well.

    I love this step by step approach. Sometimes I set a goal and it can be so overwhelming or just not well thought out that I end up giving up. This makes it more doable. Thanks!

    I have a friend who smashes all of her goals. I need a fire like she does!

    My goals at the start of the year got pushed to the side when I got diagnosed with a tumour. Fast forward six months and surgery, and I’ve found out it’s benign so I can now get on with my life as I wish! Woohoo! The world is my oyster… first thing, lose the 15 lbs I put on while worrying!

    So much great info here. We all need help getting back on track every now and then!

    I’ve always been one to allow myself room to adjust things when needed. I love the idea of creating a Progress Report! What a great way of giving yourself a boost for what you’ve already done.
