Yes as unbelievable as it may seem another year fades into the past. Are your ready for a successful 2017? If not jump on board now and program yourself for a successful 2017.
STEP ONE. Quick overview of 2016. How many of your targets did you achieve? How many did you miss by a narrow margin. How many were clearly not well selected?
STEP TWO. Congratulate yourself on the successes and near misses. Yea! You did it. Remember if you shoot for the stars and hit the moon you attain more success than shooting for a tree and hitting a rock. Yet even that is a success as you had a plan and followed through with it.
STEP THREE. Evaluation. What did you do differently on targets achieved than targets missed. Were you more focused? Was your plan of action more detailed? Were you more consistent and persistent in your follow through? On targets that were totally missed and not even in the ball park, what was the cause. Do you lack the necessary information, skills, equipment or motivation for that task?
Now that you have a clear cut idea as the causes for your successes and failures in 2016 it is time to develop a plan of action for 2017. This new plan will be your program for a successful 2017.
2017 PLAN OF ACTION
1. Set Financial Goal. Set a target that is measureable, observable and attainable. Stretch beyond your current reach but not so far it sets you up for failure. Believe you can do it and see yourself doing it.
2. Break the goal into incremental steps. Set the annual goal; then back plan for incremental progress. For example if goal is earning of $12000 in 2017, the targets are $1000 monthly or $250 weekly and $36 daily.
3. Monitor Progress. If your goal is $36 daily and you only earn $10, great. What did you do that brought in the $10 increase that activity. Suppose you earned $0, look for other options to promote your business. Continually evaluate and re-evaluate your progress toward your targets. All progress is good no movement is not.
4. Revise, re-evaluate and update as needed. Success is not achieved in a day. It usually requires persistent, consistent and continuous effort. Hang in there. Don’t give up.
See you in 2017 as your success continues to escalate.
