As we draw toward the end of each year we are forced to consider what the next year will bring. We want to plan for business growth but the last couple of years has shown us that we cannot plan for everything. You should begin to plan goals for the new year all while leaving room for the unexpected.
FREE Business Planner
One way to do this is to start with a great tool to help you. I created this easy-to-use planner that breaks up goals into tiny steps to help check off each process needed to accomplish your goal.
Download this free planner and it will help you set up your business goals for the next year, but WAIT – Start with the First Quarter! Work on the first quarter and all of the steps to accomplish the goals you set up for yourself and your business. As the last month comes to a close on the first quarter then plan out the next quarter of 2022.
Taking It In Chunks
Planning in small chunks of time can help you not feel so overwhelmed when trying to set upcoming goals. Taking it in chunks also helps you plan the steps it takes to achieve your goals (my planner has a spot to help you document those steps as well).
Planning Versus Achieving
Planning is imperative in your business. Planning versus achieving however can look very different. We all shoot to achieve all of our goals and we should do this. Keep your expectations realistic in planning but also when you review what you have achieved. Life happens, emergencies happen, and many other things that can sometimes hinder you from accomplishing all of your plans. Do not beat yourself up for this but rather add that goal into the next quarter and begin on it first if possible.
I do not know about you, but I often dream BIG! I have to remind myself that there a many steps in between where I am today and where that big dream lays. Accomplishing small goals is just as important in order to reach your big dreams. Take it one step, one chunk, and one quarter at a time. If you do this, you will achieve and reach your big dreams before you know it.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year! May find the new year to be healthy and one where you can gather with loved ones.
