Are you getting spring flowers yet?
The dogwood blooms and daffodils remind us that it is spring!
Spring also represents the end of the first quarter of the business calendar year. We should be one quarter of the way towards those goals we set at the beginning of the year.
I am a tiny bit behind but the trend lines indicate I am on the right track. How are you doing?
There is always time to set goals and expectations for yourself. Don’t wait until year end to see how you did. Set monthly goals. Research shows that we need to check in for feedback to get a sense of accomplishment or to make course corrections to achieve our goals.
Get started today:
Make a plan. Put it in writing to make your ideas turn into reality. Unless you put your ideas in writing in a plan, it is just a dream.
Work the plan. Keep it in front of you regularly so you can stay on course. Otherwise you will just wander around in the day to day weeds.
Readjust if needed. I readjust quarterly if I find a new opportunity or if the plan is not coming together the way I want it to. What can you do today to get back on course? What opportunities can you jump on today to make your goal tomorrow?
Celebrate success. Break out the kazoos and do the happy dance when something comes out the way you hoped. The beauty of plans with monthly or quarterly check-ins is you can do the happy dance more frequently! Who wouldn’t want that?
Sound like continuous improvement? It should! Life is an opportunity for continuous improvement. What are you doing today to contribute to tomorrow’s success?
