Plan for the New Year
Implement. You’ve got great ideas and the best intentions but actions and outcomes are the keys to success. Move from inspiration to action; from thinking to doing. Keep your priority list and goals written on a white board. Learn to find joy in marking things off of your daily task list.
Review and Refresh. Schedule time to review the progress you’re making in meeting your goals. Look at your marketing plan to see if it’s bringing you the return you had hoped for. Determine what you have to change to make your budget. Meet with your team members at least twice a year to discuss their progress. Update your plan to ensure continued growth and profitability. Sure, it’s a lot of work, but in the end, you should have a better handle on your life and your business.
