Setting Goals in the New Year

Taking time to evaluate the last year of your business is a great way to determine what you want to continue or change in the coming year. Take an afternoon to ask yourself these questions:
  • What worked last year? What didn’t work last year? What do I want to do differently?
  • What do I want my business to look like this time next year?
  • What 3 things need to happen in order to get there?
Make sure your goals are S.M.A.R.T.
  • Specific – be specific, not vague
  • Measurable – try to quantify your goal so you know without a doubt if you accomplished it.
  • Actionable – every goal should begin with an action verb describing how you will execute your goal
  • Realistic – make sure it is something that will require dedication to achieve, but not over the top
  • Time bound  - make sure you set a deadline. This makes it a true goal. 
Goals can be related to your business, personal, physical, emotional, or relational – whatever it is that will help you become a better version of you.  2014 can come and go or with SMART goals, you can make it a productive and dynamic year!
