Can you believe it, we’re half way into the year already.

Time just flies by so quickly. Particularly this year. But doesn’t each year seem to go faster than the year before?

How have you been traveling this year?

What’s your progress to date?

Now that we’re nearly half way into the calendar year it’s time to review your personal and business goals.

So where are you up to with your goals?

Are you there yet?

If you’re not hitting your goals, then you still have time.

Earlier today I was coaching a client and I was asked a question about why we love the idea of setting goals so much. Why set goals both at the beginning of the new year, and just as importantly,  throughout the year too.

It’s a fantastic question, especially when so many of us promptly forget all about those goals the moment we’ve made those resolutions, and fail to execute our plans and what we committed to do.

Setting goals is the easy bit. The execution and follow up of the goals? Well, that’s an other story. And despite our good intentions and excitement,  we still often fail.


Because one thing that many people tend to overlook is one important key step…

Goals must be consistently reviewed and followed up.

Here at ArtSHINE we use the OPIC system to help our coaching clients track goals.

The OPIC system is divided into 4 quadrants:

  1. Objective

  2. Planning

  3. Implementation- Execution, Review, Follow Up

  4. Commitment

In our next post we’ll look in more depth at the “I” – Implementation quadrant.  Execution, review, and follow up.
