It’s that time of year again – I can hardly believe it. Feels like it was just yesterday that were toasting in the New Year. I guess my Mom was right, time seems to go by much faster the older we get.
During the holidays it’s too easy for those of us who are self employed to get off track. As the busyness of the season kicks in remember not lose site of your goals, keep moving toward them and stay focused. Don’t get distracted by what I call the shiny objects, things that aren’t adding to our business, but taking time and energy.
Working “on” your business not just in it is possibly the best gift ever. Here are a few simple ideas that can help you ki ck things up and make 2011 a great year.
- Evaluate the number of hours you worked in your business this year. Identify ways to delegate, streamline or eliminate some of the busy work. With only 24 hours in a day, it’s critical for us to make the most of them.
- Evaluate the sales you had and how they compare to your goals. Determine the steps you’ll take to reach your 2011 goal and write those numbers so you’ll see them often.
- Surround yourself with people who are positive, producing and helpful. Steer clear of those who are whiny and filled with the latest doom and gloom. Join a mastermind group, seek coaching or simply make time to meet new people.
As this year comes to a close remember to make time for YOU and for your business planning. There are some other ideas on MP3 I think you’ll also enjoy, don’t forget to download your copy here http://goo.gl/lgMqN.
