Summer is a great time to reflect on your goals and recharge for the last half of the year. It’s easy to get stuck in the day-to-day tasks, and sometimes lose sight of the big picture. Take a moment to ask yourself what goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the year. It’s no surprise if things have shifted, but have they shifted for the better, or is it time to get back on track?

Here are some additional tips to help you reclaim your sizzle!
Let the little things go. Whether you lost an account, missed a goal one week, or lost your favorite mug, it’s easy to add up all of our perceived failures. Instead, reframe your perception. What did you learn from that account? Was it just not a good fit for your station? Take what you learned from creating the CNA and find a way to apply that in the future. Ask yourself, what made you miss that goal? If it was something out of your control, find what you can and make those changes! As for that misplaced coffee mug – that’s just an opportunity to find a better one! For more perspective, check out “The Gift to Fail” by Tammy Wellbrock on the Ten-Minute Trainer Network.
Get behind your accounts. As time as gone on, we may focus on finding that new account or chasing that big fish – but what does that mean for the accounts already on your list? As we enter the second half of the year, take a look at your account list and make sure that you’re being proactive in reaching out to your clients, introducing new products, and educating them on their performance so far.

Learn a new skill. If you’re feeling stagnant and need some inspiration, now is a great time to diversify your skillset. Find an area of your company’s product suite that you aren’t as familiar with, and dive into it! Some hot topics to explore right now might be how AI can help drive your creative, new strategies in digital advertising, such as Tik Tok, or maybe you just want to understand more about metrics and ROI.

Rest and Recharge. It’s been a long 6 months, full of ups and downs, stress and difficulties. Everyone needs to take care of themselves, their mental and physical health, and their families. It’s important in these next few weeks as we prepare to hunker down for the winter that we enjoy the sunshine, take a moment to appreciate how far we’ve come, and set our sights on what’s next.

Summer is the perfect time to reflect and reset your personal and professional life. Whether you’re crushing your annual goals or need a little motivational push – remember, we’ve still got a long way to go in 2023, and you still have plenty of time to make the most of a wonderful year!
