Yesterday I did a video on setting business goals and objectives for 2016. Is it too early to do one about falling off the wagon? I don’t think so.
Recovering from Failure to Reach Your New Year’s Resolutions and Business Goals
You have started working toward your new goals, haven’t you? Or are you putting things off until tomorrow or next week? Either way, we all know there’s no such thing as perfection. So whether you’re still trying to get started or make sure you can keep going when things get tough, here are a couple tips to help you along.
- Plan for Failure. You know everything doesn’t always go to plan, so why allow that assumption when you select your habits and goals. Plan now for those injuries, emergencies, and interruptions. Then when they come they don’t knock you out of the saddle.
- No Zero Days. I was exposed to the concept by this reddit post and I definitely appreciate the encouragement. The basic idea is that every day you do at least something that will move you toward your goals. Get in the habit of not allowing any days to pass where you’ve made zero progress or gotten nothing done. No, sitting at your computer for 14 hours answering emails doesn’t count as “getting something done”. Sorry.
- Today, Not Tomorrow. I was originally exposed to this by IT Sales Trainer Gary Pica. Basically it says that anything can be started, completed, or moved forward now should be. Pretty simple.
