Set Yourself Up for Success!
Six Steps to Create Your 2020 Business Goals.
With the New Year upon us, now is the time for change. With a fresh start to the fiscal year, we want to see our businesses flourish and grow. We want success but first, you need something to strive toward. Something that will measure your progress and at the same time keep you and your business motivated. Setting goals helps you do just that. Here are six steps to create your 2020 business goals and achieve them for your business in the coming year.
1. Write Down Your Goals
3. Set Realistic Goals
When setting goals for your business, make sure they are realistic and have a possibility of being accomplished. Goals help measure success and give you something to strive for. If you are setting goals beyond your business’s reach, it might make employees become less motivated and feel unsuccessful. Start off with simpler goals for your business, then once you reach your simpler goals, raise the ceiling. For example, if you want your business to reach a certain amount of sales, jot down a realistic number that’s not too far from your current sales but is still a number that brings a little bit of a challenge. Once that goal is met, push a little more. Overly aggressive goals are great in theory, but can leave employees frustrated if the goal is too far away. Keep them just out of reach and you’ll find more success!
4. Have Accountability
It’s never too late in the year to think about what you’d like to accomplish and start moving toward making that a reality. Check in on your goals regularly, tweak goals as needed and reward yourself along the way!
