Where is 2022 going to take your business
As December 2021comes to a close we all take stock as to where our business's currently stand. We then take a look at what our business's future looks like. What are your plans for 2022? Do you have plans for your business's future?
The end of a year and the start of a new one is a great time to reflect and strategically plan on what you've accomplished, failed on and want to do in the future. The entire process can take a few minutes to a few days, but nevertheless important to take some kind of stock in creating a goal strategy. Businesses thrive best when the leaders can take an honest look at the year gone and realistically set out a goal strategy.
Some questions to ask would be:
What were your business goals for 2021? Did you achieve them? Why or Why not?
Answering this question realistically can help you align with who you and your company really are and what exactly they are capable of. Were there missteps? Were there failed decisions? Were there product failures? Were there outside factors that impacted the business? Were there great successes? Was it a phenomenal roller coaster year? How did you weather the rough moments?
Answering these questions, outlining the who, what, where, when and why with honesty, humility and kind candor can help set you up for a successful new year. This isn't the time for blame. This is the time to be truthful. Celebrate the success, take the lessons the failures taught you and move forward with an eye on 2022!
What does 2022 have in store for you and your business?
Taking a practical mindset approach to the year ahead will help you to take things step by step. Goals and set points will help you to gain momentum. Lets break this down in some simple steps.
What are you business goals for 2022?
The first step in any plan should be to ask where are we going? Once you've decided what exactly you want, you can then set a plan in motion to get there. Does your goal align with the mission of the business? Anyone can set a goal, but knowing if it aligns is another thing. Ask yourself, does this goal align with the reason I started this business in the first place? If it does and it will forward that dream, then go for it!
Does it align with your personal values? The way you run your business goes along with how you live your life. If this goal goes against anything you believe in you will be hard pressed to accomplish it. Do what's best for you.
What will it take to accomplish the goal? Lets do a reality check here. Do you have the tools? Is your business ready for the goals you have for it? Do you have the staff? Do you have the equipment? Do you have the knowledge? do you have the finances? These are all things you'll need to consider honestly when putting this plan together.
Lastly, can you focus on your goal? Will the everyday operation of your business veer you off course? Remember to take time to consider your plan. Set a schedule. Involve others if you need to. Hire a consultant. A consultant can help you to keep on task, when the operations of the business take all of your energy. Remember we're here.
