The Best 2019 New Year’s Resolutions for Your Business

The Best 2019 New Year’s Resolutions for Your BusinessThe New Year is the perfect time to reevaluate goals and plan for the year ahead. For business owners, making New Year’s Resolutions can significantly impact their success. Here are a few New Year’s Resolutions for business owners to implement in 2019 for a successful year.

Find a Buddy

Accountability makes a world of difference! People are much more likely to meet a goal after committing to another person. That chance of success increases even more when committing to ongoing meetings with their partners to check in on their progress. Write down your goals, find a buddy, and regularly meet with them.

Improve Communication

Focus on quality over quantity. There are ways you can connect with your current and potential clients better by doing less. Focus on posting interesting, timely information on social media that encourages your audience to interact with you or share your content.

Some simple methods are:

  • Respond to comments on your posts.
  • Leave comments and like content on other pages.
  • Include personal notes on pictures or posts that you share.

Make a few real connections, consistently and you’ll see your relationships strengthen.

Extend a Hand

Pay it forward and reach out to someone in your industry just starting out who could use mentoring or a sounding board for advice. Your generosity will not go unnoticed, and you will be seen as both an expert in your field and as a business people want to collaborate with..

Think Ahead

As you think about this year’s resolutions, also consider the years ahead. Just the thought alone can seem daunting, so begin by making a list or marking up a calendar. Sometimes using a physical planner really helps. If you prefer to keep things digital, you can utilize apps. 

Write out what you’d like to see your business become. Include both personal and professional goals you’d like to achieve. What steps can you take to make those dreams a reality? Use this to stay motivated and on track with goals throughout 2019.

Prioritize Balance

Burnout affects both your mental and physical health. Be sure you take the time you need to recharge.

Ways to work in balance are:

  • Exercise often.
  • Spend time with people you care about.
  • Get plenty of sleep at night.
  • Carve out time for yourself.

Your personal success will benefit when you are refreshed and energized.

Delegate

Shifting work to someone else can be difficult  if you’re used to wearing every hat needed to run a business. However, delegation can open you up to focusing on what you love and what you do best.

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. What do I dread doing?
  2. What overwhelms me?
  3. Can someone else do in minutes what takes me hours?

Pondering upon these questions will help you decide what to delegate to someone else.
