New Year’s Resolutions for Your Business
New Year, New Me!
Every year when the First of January rolls around people make their New Year's Resolutions. This year have a think about what resolutions or goals you can make for your business; so your year can be better and more successful than the last.
Make your Resolutions SMART.
Specific - having specific goals makes them easier to achieve.
Measurable - being able to measure your progress keeps you motivated.
Achievable - the whole point of having goals is to achieve them.
Relevant - why would you make a goal that wasn’t relevant to your business?
Time-based - having a timeline helps keep you on track.
People often write business goals that are based on money; whether that be sales, profit, or personal income. While these things are important to keep an eye on, they might not be things that are inspiring or motivating for you. Our suggestion is to rephrase these to something that excites you! It could be about the people you help, your personal development, business growth, or giving back to the community.
Create Personal Resolutions that Align
You are an important part of the business and it might be worth writing a few personal resolutions that relate to your business goals. This will help you align yourself with the company. If you work for a company, or as part of your business work with other companies, it’s a great idea to find out what their goals are. Discuss it with the management team and find out how your resolutions can work alongside the business to benefit you both.
This year, while you’re making your personal resolutions, have a go at making some for your business too.
Here’s to 2021!
