New Year’s resolutions for your business
Posted on: 04 February 2014
We’re continuing with our suggestions for new year’s resolutions for your business, and today it’s #4: remember
We think the best thing you can do is remember why you started your business in the first place.
We don’t mean ‘because I needed to pay the bills’ or ‘because I wanted a new car’. We mean the deep and meaningful reasons, like the over-riding urge to have your name above a shop door, or because you were so passionate about what you did that you wanted to do it all day every day. Or perhaps it was because everyone told you that you were exceptional at what you did and people simply wanted to buy it.
Finding the driving force behind why your business began, thinking about how that force can be applied to where your business is now, and then tweaking it to get even more out of it for the future, could make the difference between a mediocre year and a cracking one.
Alongside this, we think you should also make a resolution to remember you and your team’s personal time and how you use it. Because time is a finite resource – once it’s gone, it’s gone.
So around all the working, make sure that you and your team find time for yourselves. It’s amazing what a difference some time away from the grind-stone can make to your productivity.
