Statistics show that 7 out of 10 businesses chronically under perform and are not fulfilling the owner’s strategic plan or vision.
According to the US Small Business Administration, 50% of businesses actually fail within the first 12-18 months.
So, what ARE YOU GOING TO DO DIFFERENT?
Commit to Resolve Throughout the Year
Make your resolutions today and throughout the year to become a better you. January 1st is when most people sit down and assess their goals and recommit to the goals that they didn’t accomplished from the past year. It is great to have goals and to recommit, but why wait? We should recommit to the goals in our lives on a more periodic basis rather than once a year.
Think about it. We set goals we want to reach then after about three weeks of committing to them we stop following through with the commitment. Why is that?
Look at it this way... you charge your cell phone everyday in order to maximize performance and battery life the next day, right? Why not take the same approach to living a better life? Recharge your battery often so that you are producing at the point of maximum performance.
When setting resolutions for life or business set realistic goals, don’t set goals that are truly unattainable. When setting goals you need to become self aware so that you are creating goals that are within your reach. So I challenge you to resolve to make a change today – right now – to resolve throughout the year in order to achieve your maximum performance.
