Check out the following video for a short introduction on the process and template:
Personal Mid Year Review Step 1: Reflection
The first step is to reflect on the first half of the year, and list down all milestones as well as challenges in two separate lists. If your memory of the past six months is already fuzzy like mine, you can look through resources like your bullet journal, planner, calendar, photos or even social media accounts to jog your memory.
Often, I have the feeling that I didn’t achieve much. However, this exercise would lead me to discover little wins that would have otherwise gone unnoticed, and make me realise that things are not as bad as I have imagined.
Personal Mid Year Review Step 2: Review
The second step is Review, where you can track the progress of the goals you made during the start of the year. In the Notion template, you can assign the category as well as status for each goal, and then create an updated goal if need be.
personal mid year review step 3: rating
Step 3, which is Rating, is pretty fun and interesting. Reflect on the first half of the year and rate each life area on a scale of 1 to 5 (or any other scale that you wish to use). In Notion, you can add or remove the life area cards according to what is relevant to you. Simply drag the cards to the ratings you assign to complete this step.
personal mid year review step 4: Consumptions
The fourth step, Consumptions, is optional, but I think it’s fun to document the content that I have consumed during the past six months. I have created four categories for books, movies, drama series and courses, but again you can edit these categories according to your own liking and lifestyle.
personal mid year review step 5: Recalibration
And finally, the last step is to recalibrate the goals you have set. After reviewing the goals in Step 2, choose the top three most important ones that you would like to focus on. For each goal, you can set a habit to help you achieve it. The habit helps to ensure that you are working consistently towards the goal!
