5 top goal-setting tips for this year

Happy new year and welcome to 2022! Have you made any new years resolutions yet? Better than just having an intention of what you want to do this year, it is better to set yourself some goals, then build in the habits that will get yourself closer to your goals. Today I am going to share the 5 best goal-setting tips for the year:

1. Think big! - What do you want from your life – and how can your business help you achieve that? Think about next year and beyond; what would you like your business look like in five or 10 years? When you know what end point you’re aiming for, it’s easier to set goals and make plans that move you in the right direction.

2. Pick something you can measure - Vague goals are not as helpful as those you can measure. Think about things that your are already measuring in your business and how you would want those metrics change in this year. For example: Growing sales by 20% or 10% increase in net profit or 5% reduction on expenses.

3. Make a plan to achieve each goal - Once you’ve picked a few goals, come up with actions you need in order to achieve them. It could be just as simple as you writing them down, or have a brainstorming session with your team or with someone you trust. When you have a plan in place, make sure to do your best to follow through and make it happen.

4. Keep monitoring your progress - Check in each month to see how you’re tracking with your goals. It could be you setting yourself a reminder each month run report and see how you are doing and when you review the report, if you are not on track, then come up with fresh ideas of how to make tweaks and get yourself closer to your goal.

5. Plan a celebration! - Give yourself a good reason to keep striving for your goals. It might be a long lunch, a trip to the movies, a manicure, or a spa, or a beer tasting event. Something you’ll enjoy that’s not going to blow the budget.

And there you have it, 5 top tips for setting goals for this year!
