Meeting Your Business Goals in 2015

Filed under: Business Tips

McLaughlin 72As the new year gets started, you may be setting resolutions for your personal life. But remember that your business goals affect not only your life, but also the lives of your employees and even your entire community! As you set goals for your company, ask yourself the following questions:

  • On a personal level, where do you want to be in one year, in three years, and in five years?
  • What do these goals mean for your company? What do you need to do professionally, in order to meet these personal goals? What changes do you need to make?
  • Considering time, effort, energy, and money, can you afford to invest in these goals? Are they realistic?

Now that you have an idea of your business goals, take these steps to make them a reality:

Write them down. It’s easy to dream about your goals, but writing them down is a commitment. Establish a goals board in your office, and seeing it each day will inspire you to take action.

Share your goals. Tell your employees and even your family about your business goals. Doing this holds you accountable and strengthens your commitment.

Establish milestones to measure your progress. You can’t expect to go from Point A to Point Z instantly, and it can be difficult to keep moving forward when your progress seems unclear and unfocused. So set reasonable milestones at regular intervals, and track your progress that way. It’s easier to meet one big goal when you break it down into a series of more manageable steps.
