Setting Personal Goals: What Are Your Resolutions For The New Year?

Are you thinking about setting your personal goals? What are your resolutions for the New Year?

This is a busy time of year - personally and socially. There are cards to send, gifts to buy, and parties to attend. Professionally there are reviews, audits, and projects to wrap up before the year's end. It is no wonder that we tend to push everything that can be postponed off until after the holidays.

However this is an important time of year for you to take stock both personally and professionally to determine whether or not your life is on track. When was the last time you thought about your life goals? Are you on track to achieving those goals?

No matter how busy this time of year is there is still time to take a quick measurement and evaluate your progress. After all, there will be plenty of time waiting in line, stopped in traffic, and wrapping presents when your mind is free to think of other things.

It is important to think about your personal goals before New Year's Eve for a number of reasons. Number one is that it is never a good idea to make life-altering decisions under the influence of alcohol. But there are other important factors as well. It is likely during various holiday parties and events that you will come into contact with a number of people that can inspire you or help you strive for your goals. It is also a popular holiday question, so it is a good idea to have a ready answer. Also this is a natural time to take stock of your life, your success, and your failure. Conduct a personal audit just as so many businesses do.

Of course, it is also important to have your goals clear in your mind so you can get right to work on them. You want to take full advantage of the New Year. Do not delay until the holiday decorations are packed away and all the holiday leftovers have been consumed. Look ahead, plan ahead, and then take action.

It is important to have goals and dreams. They are what make a successful, happy life possible. But it is also important to re-evaluate those goals from time to time, and it is extremely important to act upon those goals.

Now is the time to set your personal goals and make your resolutions for the New Year so you are ready to get to work on the first day of the New Year.

In mid-November, 2011, I was just about where I was sales-wise the year before, but I'm happy to say that by sticking to the business plan that Norman and I had worked on over the previous five to six months I reached my short-term goal for the last two months of 2011 and as a result increased total sales for the year by 8%! (and my business usually takes a slight hit in sales during the holiday season). Based on this I set a solid goal set for 2012 and I am extremely confident that I will attain it by using the skills and processes that Norman helped me to set in place. Now that we're halfway through the year I am on track with my goal and my sales to date are up 22.5% from last year! I highly recommend Heritage Hill Partners to any business owner reading this who is so busy with the day to day activities that's there's not enough time for you to plan for the future and grow your business.
