In the run up to the festive season in business, there always seem to be a lot to do. Deadlines to hit, orders to fulfil in time for many companies having their Christmas break, the 2017 goals still to achieve and goals for 2018 to set.
At bmt Promotions we are looking forward to some business changes within the next year and have started planning our New Year goals. Here are a few ways on how to get ready for 2018:
Set descriptive business goals.
Write down your business goals on a piece of paper or white board at work and try to visualize them. Your goal could be to make a certain amount of profit within 12 months. Think of that money and what could be done with it. You could invest the money back into the business or buy yourself something if you achieve the goal. Visualizing your goal will give you the motivation to achieve it.
Design a plan and act on it.
To achieve any business goal, you will first need toplan on how you are going to accomplish it. If you want to make a certain amount of profit within 12 months, you will need to come up with a list of steps on how you are going to get to this goal.
Set realistic, time-based goals.
Not all business goals have to be about the big picture at the end – That can seem a daunting task to achieve! Break up your goals into smaller ones to accomplish each week or month, that way, the end goal doesn’t seem so far away, and you feel like you are progressing on a regular basis.
Track,Analyse and Amend
To succeed in achieving your goals your will need to track and analyse your plan on a regular basis to ensure that you are on the road to success. Set yourself up with a spreadsheet to keep up to date with all your key figures so you know how well you are progressing in attaining your goal and if the plans not working, re-think and amend!
