A lot can happen in a few months, so you can still reach your goals before the end of the year.Business Goals for 2016

As a manager, business owner, or entrepreneur, it is essential that you are proactive in setting goals and taking action to meet those goals. These steps will propel you to higher levels of success. Don’t be discouraged if you haven’t met your annual goals yet because there are a few things that you can do to finish the year on the right note:

Outsource the Busy Work

Do you find that you spend a lot of time on busy work? These seemingly simple tasks are taking away from your ability to focus on other tasks that will help you meet your goals. Find an outsourcer to handle the busy work, such as a personal assistant or bookkeeper. Then, focus the extra time on the steps that will help you meet your goal.

Wake Up Earlier

If you are having difficulty finding time to dedicate to your goal, assess your schedule to figure out where you can free up an hour or two for focused effort. If necessary, get out of bed a little earlier so that you can put time in before everyone else gets to the office. These early morning hours can be a productive way to take action on your goals. Pick a few days each week and stay consistent with this effort through the end of the year.

Hire a Coach

Some people have a hard time reaching their goals without support. A business coach can offer advice and encouragement to keep you heading in the right direction. Another benefit of working with a business coach is that you will be held accountable to take specific action steps each week. This accountability might be the extra motivation that you need to step up your performance over the next few months.
