It’s about that time of year when we look back on the previous 365 days and examine how successful the they have or have not been. We then make certain goals for the year to come with the hope that it will be better than the last; these goals are better known by people of the 21st century as New Year’s Resolutions, and businesses should have them too. Better yet – work and personal goals should definitely be integrated! These top New Year’s resolutions are designed to assist with a new and improved work-life balance, as well as increasing your business success.
1. Learn to delegate… and do more of it!
Running a business is not easy, and too often we get ourselves caught up in our work that it consumes us. There’s a simple solution to this – delegate. Let someone else do some of your tasks for a change. Learn to count on and trust other people.
2. Promote always
Whether you’ve been successful for 2 months or 10 years, attracting new customers and reaching new audiences should always be a priority. The task of promoting the business is too often put on the back burner when more urgent tasks rise to the surface.
3. Make meetings a weekly event
Planning and frequent communication with one another is essential for a healthy, growing business. The more you review, adjust and reevaluate, the better!
4. Don’t make do; get a new one
Stop putting off getting what you need and just do it. The irritation and effort of improvising or making do is not worth it.
5. Drop what’s not working for you… and move on!
There’s always a time when a certain method or technique just isn’t working and needs to change. Stop investing energy into trying to make the unworkable work.
