Is Business Planning is the Secret to Success for the Coming Year?
Have you already began making plans for your business in 2019?
Do you set aside time regularly to plan what you want to do in your business?
If it’s not something you do, I strongly encourage you to embrace it for the rest of this year and the one coming up. Setting aside time at the end of the year, to plan out what I want to do and what growth I want to achieve in the coming year has been crucial to my success. Over the next seven days, I would like to share with you some of what I’ve learned and what I’ve found. I hope these small steps will be helpful to you.
Let me first mention why business planning is “the secret” to success. There are a few different factors that come into play in this “secret of success.”
The first is efficiency. When you go in with a clear plan, you can focus on what’s most important. Instead of trying to figure out what you should work on, what pieces of the puzzle are missing from your product funnel, or what you need to do to break through to the next income level, you know exactly what needs to come next.
As we’ll explore in a future article, working with a clear goal in mind and a plan for the year, allows it to become easier to walk backwards and create effective and efficient daily to-do lists. You will being to work on what needs to get done each day and you will reach your goals.
Next, setting a big goal for yourself helps you be creative.
If you don’t believe me, try it. Decide on a big income goal for the coming month. Write it down and keep it in front of you. After writing it down, get to work and notice what happens next. You will think of things that didn’t occur to you before. You will come up with creative ways to get more traffic. You might run a fun promotion that adds dollars to your bank account. The same happens when an important deadline comes up unexpectedly. Think back on that time in college when finals rolled around, or the last time your in-laws told you they would stop by later in the day, you got very creative about studying and cleaning, respectively.
Finally, let’s talk about the subconscious.
So far, we’ve focused on what we are actively doing to make progress by making a plan, setting goals and following through. There’s another dimension to all this, and that’s what’s going on in our subconscious mind. While we are busy plowing through our to-do list, cooking dinner for the family, and even sleeping, our subconscious mind is working towards those goals.
Planning and setting goals is important because it helps you grow faster and that means you end up with more money for yourself and your loved ones while spending less time slaving away at your desk.
To Your Success!
