While you are reflecting on your personal list of resolutions, you might want to consider another list. Many of us have our business and personal lives so integrated that we can expect to merge both personal and professional resolutions, to consider them one and the same. Here are a few ideas:
- EMPLOYEES: Your biggest asset is the group of people with which you have surrounded yourself. If you feel otherwise, then this is the year to change that. Get to know your employees with a few team-building activities. You may discover hidden talents and qualities that you can put to use within your organization. Schedule a simple working luncheon every other month and plan to hit a theme park, ball park, or arena this summer. If your employees are young and active, try a kayaking trip or hike. Review time is another great way to ask some challenging questions. If you don’t think they are up to their potential, tell them! The fact that you still have them is probably a testament to what you know they can do, and stating that fact can be encouraging. If your company is growing, then you may find that 2018 will be a wonderful year for hiring.
- ASSETS: Whether you simply maintain a primary property and items that you own, or whether you plan build on something bigger and better, it is key that you make good choices. Keep what you already have in good working order, then look for the additional pieces.
- TAXES: As you look at the numbers ending 2017, you will have some idea of where your next year will end up. Now is the time to be looking at investing and giving to capitalize on your profits.
- BOTTOM LINE: What can you think of right now that could make 2018 an amazing year? Is there an idea or vision bouncing in your head that you can’t seem to let go of, but have been scared to try? Are you wanting to expand into a new area? Is there a new product or service that would bring in customers? If you have a service oriented business, what can you do to establish new clientele? Is this the year to take that step? Go for it. Take that chance! Nothing ventured, nothing gained. You may find that adding that new service or product will take your 2018 profits to new levels.
Each new year brings change. Whether we move forward or backward is up to us, but change is the only constant. Get that list going. Make your roadmap. Set a new destination and figure out how you are going to get there. Your plan may catapult you into some amazingly interesting scenery and make 2018 the best year ever!
