New Year’s Resolutions – a lifelong tradition.

Well, it’s official: 2016 is here!

In our December issue, we spoke about reflection. We took the time to reflect on the past 12 months, whether it was reflecting on your business or your personal life. We looked at the ups and downs, what we accomplished and what we failed to do, what could have been done better, and what we did excellently. And it’s with these reflections in mind, that we begin to plan the New Year. Joshua Reeves, CEO & Co-Founder of Zen Payroll / Gusto, said the following: “Traditionally, many of us celebrate the New Year with resolutions to better ourselves. Resolutions can range from taking a special trip to going to the gym more frequently in order to get fit. But how about the fitness of your business? For this New Year, make sure to include a few resolutions for getting your business into better shape.”

As Reeves said, New Year’s resolutions are a tradition. Compiling these are a great way to become more focused, productive and motivated for the year to come.  New Year’s Resolutions allow us to take the time to seriously map out where we want to be in one year, how we want to get there and what exactly we need to do in order to succeed. What is important is also to add some action plans to help you reach your goals. And then to stick to those plans. Make sure these action plans are reachable, nothing is as demotivating as plans that do not work out.

I thought I would jot a few New Year’s Resolutions down for the Overberg Business Magazine, maybe you can also relate to this

  • I will review my vision for my business, and make sure I am still on track with my action plans.
  • I would like to identify growth areas and put plans together to address those short comings.
  • I would like to get to know my customers better, understand their needs and provide solutions for them that would exceed their expectations.
  • I would like to have my employees more engaged and connected to my brand.
  • I would like to identify and focus on what truly matters when it comes to the growth of my business.
