It is hard to believe that we are over a month into the New Year already. As time flies by it is important to remember to put the previous year behind you and start each new year with a fresh mindset. How can your organization understand your strengths and weaknesses from the previous year and move forward in the most possible manner possible? Here are some tips for making 2014 into your best year yet.
- Go back to the basics.
Do you remember why you went in to business or this industry in the first place? Going back and understanding your reasons can give you renewed purpose for the year. What are your personal values and how do they relate to your business and your brand? Today’s customers want to know who you are not just what products or services you sell. Going back and understanding all of your reasons will give you a sense of your values and how to use them to move your company forward.
- Be open to opportunities.
The business world is changing and the most successful companies are those who embrace new technologies and networks to advance their business. Look into systems that can help your company stay organized or focused. Work with contingent workforce providers to keep your production at the right levels all year round. Use networking to establish other industry contacts and social media to drive new customers to your doors.
- Establish smart goals for the new year.
SMART is an acronym for specific, measurable, assignable, realistic, and time-oriented goals. When you are determining what needs to be accomplished in the coming year be specific about your objectives. You should determine the best way to measure the effectiveness of your goals. Rely on the team you’ve assembled to take on assignments that fit within their skills and talents. Ensure that the goals are possible and won’t leave you with reasons to quit. Finally, establish a time table for each goal so you aren’t left directionless.
