MANTA SMALL BUSINESS TIP O' THE DAY:
HAVE A PLAN FOR 2012 & WRITE IT DOWN!
You don't need a new 50-page business plan. But you do need some clear, measurable goals with specific "actions" you need to take to achieve them. Written goals provide you with focus and clarity. So take the time to write down what you WANT (results or outcomes) and what you need to DO (actions) to make it happen this year.
My husband, Eric, has been an advocate of lists and organizing his day by writing things down for as long as I have known him. For the longest time, I was a resistant participant in this, I mean - I thought I don't need no stinkin' list! How hard is it, really, to keep all my tasks organized in my mind and maybe with the help of a calendar.
However..... as our business has gotten busier and each of our business-related responsibilities have grown - I have since discovered (okay... I had to admit I was wrong) - it is very easy to get off task or forget something if I don't write it down. As well as a means to refer back to job notes or even simply someone's name and phone number, a pen and paper also gives you a way to index your long and short term business goals. Writing it down just makes sense and later could even make "cents" .... get it - .... "cents"..... HA HA - okay, so I am not a comedian, but you get my gist.
Here's to a Productive, Profitable, Satisfying and Creative New Year for everyone!
