As the end of 2015 quickly approaches, you’ve probably started thinking about your goals for the next year. Before you create your business goals for the next year make sure you take some time to reflect on the current year. Identify what worked and what didn’t work then use that knowledge to create your goals for the next year.
If one of your goals is to make more money in your business, make sure you define what “more” is. Vague goals create vague results. For example, if you’re currently making $100,000 and you made $100,001 next year, would that be the more you had in mind? Probably not.
Some business owners don’t set goals or create strategic plans because they really don’t know what they want. Then, there are those that don’t set goals because they don’t believe that setting goals works. Here’s the reality, not setting goals is actually a goal to remain the same. If you decide not to change, improve or grow, you’ve set a goal to remain the same.
Do you know what results you want to create in your business? That seems like a pretty simple question but statistics show that only about 10% of people can clearly articulate what it is they want. Yikes – that’s scary! Most often we start listing everything we don’t want. Well, guess what? That becomes the reality we create because we’ve focused on what we don’t want instead of what we do want.
In order to create something different, you have to make decisions and create an action plan in alignment with what you desire.
During my upcoming virtual workshop, Show Me The Profit, I’ll be working with a small group of business owners help them create their 2016 profit game plans. We’re going to spend the day identifying and fixing the specific challenges in their business as it relates to generating or increasing their profits, pricing their products/services and attracting paying clients. No more sexy band aids! If you want a proven plan to achieve massive success, growth and profits, then I invite you to join me. Learn more here!
