Hey there, adventure seeker!
Have you taken a leap into the unknown lately? Or maybe it’s time to dust off those New Year’s Resolutions you’ve tucked away?
Yeah, they’re fantastic. But you know what’s even more satisfying?
Keeping track of your journey and measuring your progress like a boss.
Let’s face it, waiting until the end of the year to see how you did is like waiting for your favorite TV show’s season finale – nerve-wracking and potentially disappointing.
That’s why I’m all about the 30-Day Challenge instead of the ol’ New Year’s Resolutions.
It’s like taking your goals on a roller coaster ride, month after month, and living life with purpose and gusto.
This approach helps me stay laser-focused on all aspects of my life and carve out my own epic journey, one challenge at a time.
And guess what?
I’ve got four powerful self-evaluation questions that keep me on track like a trusty GPS.
But first, let me share some juicy tidbits…
Today is Day 50 of my ambitious quest to publish a blog post every single day, and I’m still going strong!
To give you an inside scoop, I’ll be using these “4 self-evaluation questions to review your progress” based on my thrilling 100-Day Challenge adventure.
Oh, and did I mention?
Tomorrow’s post (Day 51) is going to be a scrumptious roundup of all 50 blog posts so far.
Halfway through the challenge calls for a celebration, right?
So make sure you pop back here tomorrow to check it out and discover which posts have my readers grinning from ear to ear (Or not!).
♣ UPDATE: I’ve conquered my 100 Day Challenge! Grab your favorite snack and read all about it below – the highs, the lows, and everything in between.
Alright, enough chit-chat! Time to dive headfirst into today’s topic.
4 Self-Evaluation Questions to Keep Your Personal Goals on Track
The only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday.
1. What Have You Learned from Your Achievements So Far?
This question aims to help you reflect on your growth and progress.
By analysing the lessons learned from your achievements, you can better understand your strengths and areas for improvement.
For example, if you just wrapped up a 30-day challenge, ask yourself:
What did you learn from the 30 days’ achievements?
Whether you’re reviewing your daily, weekly, or monthly goals, you can adjust the question accordingly, like “from today’s achievements” or “from this week’s achievements,” and so on.
Here’s a glimpse of what I learned from my 49-day achievement:
I discovered the power of setting goals and knocking out at least one crucial task each day.
Not only did I improve my goal-setting skills, but I also learned that we can always train ourselves to learn and adapt.
When assessing your progress with this question, feel free to write about anything and everything.
The more insights, the merrier.
2. What Steps Did You Take to Be Successful Today?
This question encourages you to think about the actions you took to achieve your goals.
By reflecting on these steps, you can identify the strategies that worked best for you and replicate them in the future.
For example, my goal was to publish a blog post for 100 days straight.
I’ve been doing it for the past 49 days, which I’m reviewing now.
The steps I took included:
- starting my day off right,
- hydrating throughout day,
- exercising daily, and
- ensuring I got a good night’s sleep.

3. What Are Some Different Strategies You Could Have Used?
This question allows you to brainstorm alternative approaches that might have led to even better results.
By considering other strategies, you can optimise your process and achieve your goals more efficiently.
For example, I write first thing in the morning but often publish my blog posts later in the day.
Different strategies I could’ve used include publishing my daily blog post before noon and then spending the rest of the day promoting, reading, learning, and researching.
4. How Did You Keep Going When Things Got Tough?
This question helps you identify the sources of motivation that kept you moving forward during challenging times.
By understanding what drives you, you can tap into that motivation when faced with obstacles in the future.
For example, when temptation whispered: “No one will know; no one will care if you publish a blog post today,” I stayed focused on the big picture: the purpose of this blog.
My blog is my stage to share valuable life lessons, connect with kindred spirits, and inspire others to live happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives.
I want to make the world a better place, one blog post at a time.
Final Thoughts: Embrace the Journey
I’ll be honest; I’ve been grappling with the whole quality vs. quantity debate since I started publishing every day.
You know those pesky self-doubts and lingering uncertainties?
They never entirely disappear.
But one thing I know for sure is that if I hadn’t started this challenge, there wouldn’t be anything to evaluate, guaranteeing that I’d achieve… absolutely zilch.
Our goals are the reason we get out of bed each morning. They help us focus, work hard, learn, improve, and grow.
And these four self-evaluation questions offer us a fantastic snapshot of our progress, ensuring we stay on track to reach our goals.
So, embrace the journey and let these questions guide you towards greater self-awareness, personal growth, and ultimately, success.
