New Year’s Resolution #1: Set better goals

50398356 - coffee on the table with note writing new year goals.The start of a new year is the perfect time to set realistic goals for your business. Goal setting is a valuable habit as goals lead to success rather than distress.

Here are three goals to get you started:

1. Learn something new. Whether you learn something new about your business or yourself, both will make you happier and more productive. It will add to your skills and add a new dimension of interest to your life—an important part of achieving a healthy work-life balance and increasing your business success. .

2. Don’t make do, invest in new. If something in your office is interfering with your success, don’t just make do, invest in new, especially if it’s interrupting your work. Invest in things that will grow your company in new ways and improve your profit margins whether that means updating an old fax machine or investing in new software or employees.

3. Drop what’s not working and move on. Don’t let things that aren’t working ruin your chance at success. Every offering isn’t going to be a huge seller, not every employee or contractor is going to work out. Drop it if it’s not working and find something that does.

Keep these goals in mind throughout the year, and see where they take you. Amazing things are sure to happen!
