The Mid Year Review: A creative reboot

The turning of the seasons is always a good time to reflect on how the year is going.

The mid-point of our yearlong journeys is a particularly potent time to take a moment to pause, take stock and maybe explore some kind of energetic reboot.

If you’ve been feeling called to devote a little time to some kind of mid year review, I’ve created a little something to help you. 

But first, what are the benefits of this kind of halfway-point appraisal?

Allow me to share the creative magic of what I call A Midyear Moment…


“Regularly take an inventory of your strengths and achievements.”

The Benefits of a Mid Year Moment

One of my favourite recommendations for making the most of the second half of the year is what I call a Midyear Moment.

This is a conscious, considered, and intentional pause to review and assess what’s working, as well as to check in with those shiny hopes and dreams you envisioned in the New Year season.

While it may seem unproductive to stop halfway and look around, it can actually be a strategy for enjoying the aha moments and realisations that can fast-track your progress throughout the rest of the year.

Or as Michael Bungay Steiner, author of Do More Great Work puts it…

This quote is from a post I wrote almost a decade ago – prompted by a family drama that forced me to take some time out to reassess.

And the insight I shared back then has evolved to become one of my favourite life lessons:

How downing tools for a while can be highly productive. 

Besides, as one of the 1980s most unlikely sages so wisely says… 


Support for your Midyear Moment

So, if you’re feeling ready for a productive pause in your yearlong journey, I’ve designed a process to guide you in making your Midyear Moment even more effective, not to mention, joy-clarity-&-confidence-boosting
