09 Jan Will You Continue With the Same Old Plans This Year?
There is a saying that goes something like this: “If you continue to do what you’ve always done, you’ll carry on getting what you’ve always got.”
How true that is. But lots of people will stride out into the early days of 2012 and follow that adage without even realising it. It might be that your business didn’t achieve what you wanted it to during 2011. No worries – that year has passed and what’s done is done. But now you have a new opportunity to do something different to change the results you got before. Will you do it?
Sitting down and making plans to change things is one thing. But you have to put those plans into action to achieve the alternative results you want. Set dates for these goals so you are accountable to them. Don’t just decide you want a new overhaul of your website so you can earn more from it in the coming year. Decide when you want to do it and start looking for a company that can help you achieve this new goal.
Lots of us start the New Year with resolutions of one kind or another. But you don’t have to carry on down the usual path of forgetting all about them and falling back into your old habits by February 1st. Seize the opportunity to do something new and worthwhile with your business. Do something you’ve never done before – you might be surprised at the results you get.
Breaking out of your usual pattern can be difficult. But planning for changes is the best way to achieve it. If you’re not convinced, look back on the plans you had in the past. Do you still feel they were the best you were capable of? Perhaps they were at that time, but you’re a different person now. Your business might have progressed too. New plans for the future are a good gift to give to you for 2012, so don’t waste the opportunity to make the most of them starting from today onwards.
