Do you feel your business is trapped in the ‘same old’ ?
Are you just taking each day as it comes hoping you will still be in business this time next year ?
It is important on occasion to lift your head up from your desk, and take a little time out to consider where your business is going.
Apart from the obvious purpose, (to earn a living), it is always useful and effective to be more specific about what your aiming for.
Deciding business goals, will in the long run save time and money. It should effectively influence all the actions you take each day while running your business.
Once goals are set you can look at what you are doing, and consider the following:
- Does it get you closer to your goal, great ! If not why are you spending your precious time on it ?
- Are there things you should be doing to do to achieve your goal ? Sometimes it becomes a habit to put tricky tasks off.
- Are you keeping on track ? Once goals are set up, it is easy to forget about them and go back to the ‘usual’. Keep a note by your desk to remind you why you are there !
- Don’t forget to monitor your progress. This will give you a boost for the tough times when problems crop up.
Clearly, setting business goals is an important part of being in business, and you must not forget to consider personal goals too. Family life can disrupt even the best laid plans, and not everyone wants to work until they drop.
