As we enter the last 3 months of 2016, its time to pull out our goals and review our progress or lack thereof. Which goals are still important? Are any of them achieved or no longer relevant? What have you been doing to move closer to your goals? What results are these actions having? Are you surprised at what you see? Now is the time to see if there are adjustments to your strategies, your advertising, your actions that will help move you forward toward your goals.
This year has flown by for me, and although I dislike excuses, so many things have occurred in my personal life, that I am no where near where I wanted to be by now. Part of the reason I feel like I have been so inefficient, is that I didn’t have a real plan in place yet, so when things came up, it was just too hard to keep going.
The lesson I take home from this is how important it is to make a written plan. Its okay to make revisions and changes, but it gives you a map to continue to move forward even when you don’t know the exact next step. As for me, I am now working on an updated game plan for the last quarter of the year. How are you doing?
If you have any tips on how you plan, leave a comment…I would love to hear what you have to say.
