A few years ago, in the world of project management, I was introduced to the concept of a “reset meeting.” In a nutshell, a reset meeting is a meeting that’s held with those who are working on a project to a) take stock of what’s been completed, b) re-affirm the project’s goals, and c) reset expectations.
This type of meeting might be held when elements of the project aren’t going so well, either after a major milestone or sooner if it’s needed.
Recently, as I thought about a few things in my life that I felt weren’t going so well, I went back to this concept.
How could I use the idea of a reset meeting in my personal life? Where did I want to take stock, re-affirm goals and most importantly, reset expectations – both mine and others’?
I couldn’t get that one word, reset, out of my mind. According to several of the online dictionaries I consulted it means to set again, anew, or differently.
Isn’t that freeing?
I can reset just about anything. I can reset:
- my business
- my physical spaces
- my health
- my day
- my approach
- my perspective
- my routine
- my schedule
- my relationships
The list could go on.
I’ve chosen to reset a few things these past few months, some more easily than others. Now I put the question to you:
What could you choose to reset today? Where would you want to set things anew, or differently?
Try it, and see how it goes.
