As we hit this time of year it can feel a bit ‘sloth’ like. With only a couple of months left of the year, and the clocks changing, it can be only too easy to think ‘Christmas is looming, I might as well save my plans to next year.’
The trouble with thinking this is that in January there isn’t some magic wand that sorts next year for you either. It could mean you just put off what you might accomplish now, and give yourself an even less rewarding start to another year.
So, let’s ditch the ‘Sloth’ and look to finishing this year with a flourish, and starting next with a bang.
Did you make any plans for this year? If they are written down, go and find them. Now is the chance to look over what you wanted to achieve in the year, and see where you are at.
Now, give yourself some targets that are achievable, but stretch you a little, to complete in the next two months. Here’s some to start you off, but think about what you want to achieve and write them down.
• What turnover do you want to hit in the last two months?
• How many new customers do you need?
• Is there a change of price needed?
• Are you looking to launch a new product or service?
• Is the lead up to Christmas your busiest time and you just need the time and resources to fulfill all the orders?
It may be some or all the above, but put some specifics down. How many new customers and what type? Who is the new product or service targeting? How are you going to get things in place to achieve the orders?
Use the comments below to state what your targets are to the end of the year. Just 2 or 3 targets – it will help with the accountability.
