Are You 2012-Ready?—Leverage Your New Year’s Resolution for Better Productivity and Business Success!
The New Year is just a few days away and already some are having doubts about their ability to stick to their resolutions. The problem with most resolutions is that they start out good and strong, but eventually wane and fade within a few weeks.
Yet, despite all that, a few individuals will actually succeed in changing their habits and improving their lifestyle—permanently!
What is their secret? They take baby steps and avoid sudden or drastic changes. The most common reason New Year’s Resolutions fail is that people try to do too much too soon. When we try to change too many things at once, we tend to lose focus and energy.
Avoid making vague resolutions like “I’m going to improve my business!” While your intentions are good, you need to be more specific about what part of your business you want to improve. You need to support your resolution with a concrete action plan and employ a proven method for improving specific aspects of your business.
