It’s that time of year again, when we start to put together our new years resolutions. We think about all of the things we want to do. Lose weight, make more money, read 30 books, get a new car, or eat healthy. Most of our resolutions are good ideas that give us a
better life. But most of us will fail at seeing our resolutions through completion. The same is true for businesses that want to make more money, have new connections, or expand their store front only to fail.
Why do we fail so miserably at keeping our new years resolutions? I think that it may have to do with our lack of vision, and lining up with what we need, not what we want. Instead of just listing off resolutions of things we want, we should answer some questions that will help us define what we need. And recognize that our resolutions should be about transformation.
Where do you see yourself in 6 months?
What do you want to do every day?
Who do you want to work with?
How do you want to make money?
How much money do you want to make?
How do you want to connect with customers/others?
Does my family know what I dream to become?
Does our team know the vision of the boss?
What causes me stress?
Where do we lose money?
What is one thing that does not cost money that brings me joy?
Who is my best friend? Do they know it?
What is my biggest fear?
Who makes the decisions?
What is your life/company all about? Are you sleepwalking through life or pressing forward with purpose and joy? You don’t have to have a new years resolution but you should recognize who you are as a person, a business, a father, a brother, a son, a partner, a provider, or a boss. From there you can better yourself or business with purposeful, powerful steps.
As a business we want to help you succeed at your resolutions. If you need to be more healthy, we want to lead you to apps that help. If you fear that you will lose all of your photos in your iPhone, iPad or MacBook, we want to teach you how to secure them with Dolly Drive and Time Machine. If you want to communicate with your team in a streamlined fashion, we want to partner with you to help you succeed. If you’re stressed out from all the business chaos, we’re here to bring you the best solutions.
Take the new year by the horns and conquer your goals, conquer yourself.
