3 Ways to Choose Your Business Goals for the New Year
Happy New Year, Printed Minters! Just like that 2020 is here + we had the best time popping confetti canons and indulging in a flute of champagne or two. All of our personal and business goals for the year are set (you can read more about how we plan on going after those, here) and that’s why we wanted to pop-on today + share what exactly made choosing them so easy. At the start of a new year it’s all too often that we find ourselves overwhelmed with all of the new that we could be focusing on + not clearly seeing (and therefore choosing) the goals that could really amp up our lives!
Sound familiar? Pull up a seat, your matcha latte and let’s quickly touch on how you can get clear on what your biz goals should be.
1. Decide How You Want to Feel
We’ve found that deciding how you want to feel is the key to effective goal setting. For instance, in 2020 do you want to feel less stressed? More financially abundant? Ooze security? Get clear on what emotions you long for so in step 2 you can…
2. Make a List of Ways You Could Achieve It
We’re talking total brain dump. If you want to feel less stressed to the max in the new year, what would make you feel that way? Hiring a new employee? Axing those darn Facebook Ads you don’t truly want to do? Taking a daily afternoon barre class so you come back to the office revitalized? Once your list is done, choose four things that sound like they’d be the best options (hint: they’re usually the ones that light you up + make you want to “eeek” with joy!) and circle them.
3. Choose Where to Start
Next, assign each goal you’ve circled to a different quarter. Going along with the “less stress in 2020” goal, perhaps you’d put “hire a new employee” in the Q1 category and you’d focus on achieving that in January-March of this year. Lastly, you’d make a list of tasks that will take you to the completion of this holy grail objective. You’d gather the skills required for the role, post the job listing, interview applicants, train the new hire and set off into a glorious Q2 — gloriously, less stressed. Voila!
What is your 2020 goal?
