Happy New Year
I hope you had a fun festive season and, like me, are ready for a productive and creative year ahead.
Usually around this time of year I would be writing to you encouraging you to reflect on the year just gone and to set goals for the year ahead. I would also be telling you to make these specific, measurable, actionable, realistic and timed and be clear on your end game.
However this year I have taken a very different approach to my business and personal goals and would instead like to share that with you.
Yes I have reflected on the year just past. We had a great year, building the team to 5 regular members. We grew as a business in terms of turnover and profit and I got my month in Australia. What I also found was the year felt tough and much of it was an uphill climb. And I know many of my clients experienced the same.
So this year I am keeping things much simpler. This year I am looking for flow, in both my business and personally. This year I am saying YES to what feels right and NO to what just simply doesn’t. My goals are far more general.
- To maintain and improve my work / life balance and make sure I get at least 6 weeks away with Shara before she starts school.
- To work with clients I enjoy working with, that respect my opinions and include me as part of their team.
- To stick to what I love and delegate the rest to the other experts. This includes expanding our team of expert trainers to deliver courses through the BGA.
There are a few more, but you get the point. And yes this is backed up by an updated strategic plan and a detailed budget (come on I’m still me!) that I will be meeting my team on in the next few days BUT it feels as if this year I have a broader perspective and am open to possibilities.
And I wish you and your business flow and success in 2016
