It's Mid-Year - Are You Working on Your Goals?

Each New Years I redo my business plan and create my goals for the year. I review my Vision and Mission to see if it’s still relevant, update my strategies, and then create my business goals. I coach my clients to do the same.

About this time of year I review my progress on annual goals. Are you doing the same? Or are you slacking off? Summer is traditionally a time for sending the kids to grandma, taking vacations and generally having a good time. But in doing so, are we neglecting our businesses?

Are YOU working on your goals?

As entrepreneurs we are usually too busy being the technician and working on the day to day chores necessary to run our businesses. There are appointments, networking events, business administration, and the work we do. It’s easy to get caught up in the daily grind. Nevertheless, if we truly want to get ahead, we need to work on the “Big Picture Goals” such as writing that book (join this book writing coaching group if this is one of your goals), creating that e-course, or writing the articles that will position you as an expert.

The subconscious mind knows when we slack off. It allows us to ignore what we really want. Don’t let this happen to you. Find a nice three-hour block of time in your schedule and revise your business plan. If you don’t have a business plan, consider my Two Page Mini Business Plan™. It’s fast, easy and gets results.

What's the best thing about my business plan? It's the Success Book - a Daily Action Planner that keeps the entrepreneur in line with the DAILY TASKS necessary to build a business. We all need a constant reminder that goals can only be achieved if we TAKE ACTION!
