Wrap up 2013 & Look to the Future!

Posted

Congratulations! You made it through another year!  As you take a look back on 2013, review your annual goals.  Did you achieve all your business objectives?  If not, use these key steps to refocus your efforts and ensure that 2014 is a success.

Celebrate Past Successes.
Look back at 2013, and acknowledge your accomplishments. Congratulate yourself for all of your hard work. Whether you pat yourself on the back or treat yourself to something special, it will help your mindset and motivation moving forward. Take a moment to reflect upon how you achieved your victories as well. Can you apply anything that you have learned towards future endeavors?

Learn from Missed Goals.
Next, take a look at the objectives that you failed to meet in 2013.  Were they realistic? Do they still make sense?  If they are still relevant, have a deep dive to learn what obstacles kept you from meeting those goals in 2013.

Eliminate Barriers.
Once you have identified the biggest challenges faced in 2013, come up with solutions to break down the barriers.  Weed out the inefficiencies and determine what you need to increase your effectiveness.  Come up with an action plan to ensure success in the New Year.

Set Action-Oriented Goals and Stick to Them.
Planning should not be an annual event that is only revisited at the end of the year.  In 2014, make goal setting a part of your daily and weekly routines.  Don’t make New Year’s resolutions based on what you promise to stop doing.  Instead, start devising a plan today as to what new actions you must take in order to achieve your desired outcomes next year.

Leave your Doubts Behind.
In order to successfully conquer 2014, you need to get rid of all of your doubts. Believe that 2014 will be the best year yet, and then make it so.  Solidify your proactive approach by being honest with yourself and preparing your goals early.  The more confident you are in your plan, the more successful you will be.

Whether you are looking for the right job or the right employees, start the year off on the right foot, by working with RealStreet Staffing.

I had the pleasure of partnering with RealStreet Staffing in filling a permanent project manager position. The entire team at RealStreet listened to my needs, communicated effectively, and worked to find qualified candidates. We achieved a successful outcome and I look forward to working with RealStreet in the future.
