Stop Putting It Off – Plan for 2013

Are your competitors going to do better then you in 2013?  It is probably because they have planned and visualised their success.  So here is some clear business advice to motivate you before you miss the boat.

The holidays are near and 2013 will be with us very soon.  Are you one of the many companies that still don’t have a formal strategic plan?  Many don’t even have a meeting scheduled before the end of the 2012 to create a strategic plan.  Are you fire-fighting day-to-day with little thought for your three to five year objectives let alone a one year plan?  If you want to:

  1. Hit or exceed your goals – visualise your bright future
  2. Design a route map for success
  3. Avoid mistakes – ensure you targets are realisable
  4. Take the emotion out of decision making
  5. Be prepared for most eventualities
  6. Build your benchmark to measure against as the time progresses

The answer is simple… plan now – don’t procrastinate.  Many of you know other successful companies who plan and execute consistently.  So there is little question that you are just putting off what you know must be done.  But perhaps there are solid reasons for your procrastination. Allow me to identify and resolve some of them for you.
