Quarter 2 Goals + Expectations

April 1, 2020

And like that…it’s Quarter 2! Happy April Friend! I am GLAD you’re here.

Yesterday I spent some time reflecting on Quarter 1…what worked well, what didn’t, what I accomplished, what I need to change, and all the things in between. Before you dive into Quarter 2 with me I recommend checking out yesterday’s post and spending a little time yourself using my 4 reflection questions to assess how Q1 was for you! If you’re anything like me you have to WRITE things down, chew on them, and assess where you’re at (on paper) before moving forward.

P.S. – To get a glimpse of why I’m doing quarter (i.e. – 12 week intentions) goals check out The 12 Week Year. This method of goal setting has been so life giving for me this year!

So here we go on onto Q2 with my…
