New Years **Solutions 

As the Calendar comes to an end each year the memes and jokes about New Years Resolutions will fill the Facebook and twitter pages.   Some will appreciate the reminder to set their goals, and others will just joke about the experience of having made goals and then failed to follow through with their good intentions.

Regardless of your history with personal goal setting, we know goal setting is important, for a business to succeed.

Every business leader needs to take a time out each season to re-evaluate their results, commit to their reason and to re-set their calendar with the important and urgent tasks.

GOALS = “GO ALL the way to SUCCESS”

It is a personal process first then a Business process

Business Coach Colin Sprake teaches that there is a big difference between being interested in your success and actually being fully committed to your business success.    This means that goals are not just an annual game or personal pep talk, GOALS are focused on in the whole process until the completed ACTION.

It has been said that everything that happens is a process of – Feelings which lead to Thoughts which builds to Actions which produce Results.

It is important to take control of our thoughts to keep our thoughts positive and feelings happy and energetic.   So that the result of positive thoughts and energetic feelings will be action that produce successful results.

Steps to Success…

  1. DREAM 

  2. GOALS 

  3. PLAN


#1.  DREAM and Dream BIG

Take time alone with write out your personal Dreams and anything that will motivate your actions.   Have fun dreaming and being creative to imagine all of the great holidays and experiences that you want to share with your family, friends and future business partners.

Make a personal bucket list of

  • What you want to have,
  • What you want to do,
  • Where you want to go,
  • What do you want to give and share with.

#2.  GOALS and “GO ALL the way to SUCCESS”

A Goal is a Dream with a Deadline.  When you define what you want you also need to define when you want it.  Some Goals may be life long adventures but some goals must be done before the next season.

Write out a Date for when you want to achieve your Dreams, beside each dream add a date.

For Example:

  • January 31 – lump sum contribution to my R.R.S.P.
  • March 31 – Complete my tax return early
  • April 31 – Receive my tax refund and re-invest it…
  • January  – Take a 14 day holiday in Jamaica with family
  • January 2020 – Expand business to a new office with a board room and offices for three sub contractors to share.
  • etc…
