Do you remember Y2K?
Kids today don’t understand the urgency everyone felt to stock up on supplies and await midnight on January 1, 2000. The day the world would officially be off the grid.
Much to our relief life moved on as if nothing had happened.
- The ball still dropped in Times Square.
- People sang Auld Lang Syne.
- And thousands of people had an endless supply of canned good buried under their porches.
We often laugh at those who are over prepared for disasters, but think about it…. those are the people we want to know when hard times come. Those who are prepared!
While I don’t believe a lifetime supply of green beans will help your business, I do believe there are some things you can do to prepare your business for the coming year.
Plan, Prepare and Execute
My friend and mentor, Todd Herman, teaches in his 90 Day Year program that you shouldn’t just set goals, but rather, you need to create a roadmap to get there.
When you take time to plan your next steps (mine are in 90 day increments), create a roadmap, and execute the goals, you’ll see more success than acting as if your thoughts will grow your business.
Thoughts aren’t things.
Things are things.
Make clear, concise moves that will lead to growth in 2018.
Trust Your Instincts
When something isn’t right, you just know it. Trust your instincts! Anytime I’ve steered away from trusting my gut, I get burned.
Whether it’s the right coach, the right networking group, or the right team members. Follow your instincts.
Get The Right Seats On The Bus
This piece is crucial to your business. In order to grow, you need to have the right seats on the bus.
I know this from experience, both in my own business and in helping other entrepreneurs work with Virtual Assistants.
If your team isn’t operating in their strengths, you’ll end up frustrated and in time, your business will suffer. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have time for that!
As we say goodbye to 2017 and move into 2018, use this week to prepare for this year. What do you want to accomplish in the next 90 days?
Plan, prepare, execute, and get the right seats on the bus.
Let’s set 2018 up to be your year.
Happy New Year!
P.S. I can help you get the right seats on the bus. Let’s hop on a call to chat about how we can partner in 2018!
