May is just around the corner, and many people are asking themselves, what have I accomplished? Or maybe the scarier question, what have I not accomplished?
With the second quarter of the year underway, re-evaluation was at the forefront of the April DLE Breakfast Club, which conducted a calibration to check on members’ goal progress and gave a boost to those feeling stuck. Data from the latest DLE 10-Second-Poll showed that 62% of respondents were satisfied with their goal progress, but 38% were not.
DLE entrepreneurs Jonathan Katz, Founder of BLENDi in Boston, MA, and Lucas Valois, Marketing Analyst at GMC IST in São Paolo, Brazil, shared their customized tools for tracking daily habits supporting goals. Highlights from their strategies included:
Understand why: Set goals that have meaning to you. Understanding why you want to achieve the goals you create will help you motivate yourself better.
The DLE Breakfast Club is a great way to kick off your morning. Touted for being inclusive, inviting and informative, the program provides ideas and tips that will stimulate a positive, productive mindset for the rest of the day.
