Summer is a great time to refocus and re-energize your business. I’m working on setting aside some time to do this as we speak. Why? Simply because if you don’t take the time to make sure your business is on course, you could end up running the business into the ground and never know what happened. Here are some questions to help you get started making sure your business (and life) are going in the directions you it want to.
1-What do you want?
This is the biggest step to knowing if your business is on track. Write down what you really want in life, business and your future, with as much detail as possible. The more detail you write, the easier it should be to make a plan to reach those goals. Unless you know what you want you can’t accomplish it!
2-What are you doing?
Second, write down what you’re currently doing. This will help you determine how far off you are from your desires.
Now take your two lists and compare them. Do you see what you’re currently doing becoming or turning into what you want?
4-Make changes or goals.
Last you want to make a list of changes if your two lists are very different. If you’re right on track, congratulations! Make some new goals that will help you continue to move in the right direction.
How does your business stack up? Are you in major need of making changes or are you happy with the direction you’re going in?
