A strong business doesn’t just set it’s goals once a year because the calendar flips forward a year. Hopefully, your goals have been established and a new year is an opportunity to evaluate past performance and determine if you are on the right track to achieve your long term company goals.
General goals need to be broken down into measurable parts. For example, your goal may be to increase sales. By how much? How many sales calls are required to result in the correct number of closings to achieve the increase you desire?
One of the priority goals for CyberCletch going into the new year, is for the daily business to need ME less. I realized just how necessary this goal was during the final quarter of 2010. Too many projects stood still waiting for my approval or evaluation, at far too many phases of the process. This just reiterated the advice Dan Walker gave me during our business brain storming sessions. Create processes and procedures so my team can move onto the next step without waiting for me. Keep the business momentum moving forward.
I know how much I need to increase my business in 2011. I’m spending time this month breaking that goal down into measurable parts, one of which begins with creating processes. I’m off to finish what I began last year, so 2011 will be even more successful.
How are you moving forward? What have you resolved to accomplish in 2011? Whatever it is, I wish you ease of implementation! Happy New Year!
