It’s amazing and quite interesting how months have gone by like a wild wind, some of this month which are as shadows and others are counted. I don’t know about you but I began this year with so many desires, goals, target and breakthrough I was going to bring about and so did many others, I was so excited, but surprisingly for me and almost everyone else most of this past month have being spent under lock down and here we are in the month of June; the mid year. it is of great realization that while the whole worlds has being held still by this pandemic, time has not seized to pass, in seconds, minutes, hours, days and now months, time keeps racing forward never looking and coming back, so what have you been doing in the past five months?
What steps have you taken into achieving your goals? If there hasn’t been any, what is your excuse? Are you sitting back and watching the whole world move on while you stand still probably waiting for the pandemic to go away or are you utilizing even this time, So I figured out we all have to learn how to move with time and its direction. sincerely this may seem like the worst time to try something new; low motivation, financial constrain, physical risk, temptation to sleep or watch movie all day… but Hey dear!!!, this is a great time to try something different at least something you have not really had time to do.
So i realized that while a lot of us sit home doing nothing, a lot of people are coming up with ideas, innovation, developing their capacity and doing everything to adjust to the coming times, I forgot add that some people are making great money from sanitizers, producing masks, creating content to entertain people, making innovations and so many other things. All you need to be relevant is to create value, provide a solution to a problem people might me facing at a time like this or something to help with the post pandemic era and if necessary stop clinging to an idea people may not necessary need any moment now, may be an idea for probably 2020.
So It’s June, June is mid year (6 month) and for me it is my period of goal review and a period to see what my progress has been so far, see what need to be adjusted or changed. It is a period to retreat, look back and reflect on the journey so far and how I can best utilizes the time I have to achieve more. In case you feel so left behind, sad or maybe you didn’t even have a goal or idea or even a breakthrough to look back at, you don’t need to bother so much its mid years but it’s not too late you still got some time so you can utilize this time to look at how you can start adjusting to time and think about what you can do to add value too, this midyear can also be your period to reflect and adjust your goals if necessary to meet with time. DEAR YOU, it can also be a time make or write down some midyear goals and work towards them. Remember that you don’t have to build a space craft to add value or may be even create the vaccine for Corona virus; it may simply be something to help others adjusts to the situation, it may be something that requires less or even no capital at all. Remember that all you need to do is to create value and it takes discipline to do that; so I figured that discipline in a time like this is something very difficult to do, I also struggled with that when the lock down started but with time, commitment and determination i adjusted to a great extent. Note: Result are been created only by passion, discipline and commitment so while you make your goals or review them, you must put in mind this factors, it may not be easy at first but with time and determination you will also adjust. lastly you have to start looking inwards and look into that light that is blinking inside of you and make a deliberate and positive decision to make it shine instead.
So what about you, what thoughts does the month of June strikes in you?
