Happy New Year to all and may 2011 be one of the most uplifting, opportunity-filled years of your life. So now that the New Year is here, are you the resolution type? Is it now or never, or is the beginning of a new year just another day?
It is said that the success rate for New Year's resolutions is pretty poor; so when it comes to your business the resolution thing is probably not a wise choice after all. In any event there is no time like the present to take an inventory of where you are at and where you would like to be. Books have been written on the subject of planning, gap analysis and the like but just a few quick tips:
Review and assess your high-level goals
Identify your short-comings and accomplishments with respect to the high-level goals
Resolve to sustain the good that arises from the accomplishments
Commit to resolving the short-comings
Applaud yourself and your team for committing to the task of sustained success
