2019 is officially at the halfway point. If you’re like me, you’re wondering where the heck March went, much less the rest of the months.

I went through my written journals for 2019, and was amazed about how much I had forgotten about. Either podcast interviews, work-related matters, or to-do list items that never went beyond those lists.

In the past, I would’ve beaten myself up for not doing the to-do list items. However, based on how busy and productive this year has been, I remind myself (and remind you) that we simply cannot accomplish everything we want to do, especially if we are driven types that want to accomplish so much.

I’ve stared using a CRM tool to do a (hopefully) better job of keeping me on task with my to-dos and follow-ups. I’ll write about that CRM in a future post, but for now I definitely recommend using some sort of system to help you keep on top of things.

One of the the main reasons I journal is to keep a record of my personal and professional growth. When you look back at 6 months of work (or longer) you’ll be amazed how much you’ve done in that time. There were things that I did that I know now didn’t move things forward as much as I would hope, but a good quote that Steve Olsher shares is that failure is success with an unexpected outcome.

What are you going to do the next 6 months? Maybe dust off those New Years resolutions and see what you’ve accomplished, and what you would still like to do before 2019 comes to a conclusion. There’s still time.
