Now is the time of year when people look back on 2017 to take stock of the good and the bad, both personally and professionally. If you're the member of an organization, whether as an employee, manager or owner, this is the season for things like performance evaluations, making goals for the new year and setting budgets.
If you really want to feel satisfied when this time rolls around at the end of 2018, you need to develop a
strong bias for ACTION
, and avoid accepting the status quo of yesterday! Put together your plan for improvement, and put it into action -- TODAY!
Not long ago we were speaking to a client who was talking about how 2017 was such a bad year for their company, but they had high hopes for 2018, with a list of plans to start doing in January. Our reaction was, if those steps will make a significant improvement in your operations and outcomes, why aren't you doing them right now instead of waiting for New Year's Day?
