Do you want 2023, to be better than your 2022?

Are you ready for 2023?


You want 2023 to be better than last year, right? Success is waiting for you!


Let this be a year of no regrets!


Numerous promising opportunities present themselves every January. The start of a new year is an excellent time to make plans for the future.


Let’s discuss on what you can do to make 2023 your year!


 

1. Review your good results in 2022


Asses your wins in 2022.


🟠 What were the key factors that contributed to our success in the past year?

🟠 What challenges or obstacles did we face, and how did we address them?

🟠 What changes or improvements did we make that had the biggest impact on our results?

🟠 What areas of our operation showed the greatest growth or improvement?

🟠 Where do we see opportunities for further growth or improvement in the coming year?

🟠 What resources (such as time, budget, personnel, etc.) will we need to pursue those opportunities?


By carefully analyzing data and asking targeted questions, you can gain a better understanding of the factors that contributed to your success in the past year. This can help you identify what strategies or approaches were particularly effective, and give you insight into what areas may be worth focusing on in the coming year. By taking the time to review and evaluate your data, you can better understand what went well and where there may be opportunities for improvement, which can help you make informed decisions and plan for the future.



2. Review what caused problems in 2022?


Often, past problems are the best predictor of future issues.


🟠 What were the major issues did you experience? 🟠 What caused issues that you did not expect?

🟠 What issues did you not expect would take so much time and energy to resolve in 2022?

🟠 What may have prevented or reduced those issues?

🟠 What key business decisions do you think needs change or update?


It is always beneficial to look back on previous issues and challenges that required more time and effort to handle than planned in order to uncover patterns or trends that can be used to inform future planning. By investigating the underlying causes of these problems, you may be able to impose tactics or techniques that can help prevent or lessen such challenges in the future.



3. Set goals


Often, past problems are the best predictor of future issues.


With a goal in mind you can make faster progress in growing your business. Without a goal in mind, you won’t have anything to work toward that will slow-down improvement.


Do you want to:


🟠 Expand your client base by a certain percentage?

🟠 Boost your annual revenue?

🟠 Expand in another location?

🟠 Hire more employees?

🟠 Make your business space more energy-efficient?

🟠 Expand your service lines?

🟠 Contribute to non-profit organisations?


The most important thing about setting goals is to make them measurable and realistic.


4. Draw the map


Measurable objectives should have milestones and plans that get you from point A to point B. You can’t reach those higher sales goals if you continue to do the same thing. So, what are you going to do that’s different?


🟠 Break your goals down into smaller, more manageable tasks

🟠 Once you have identified your goals, break them down into smaller, actionable steps.

🟠 This can help make the goals more attainable

🟠 Make it easier to track progress.



5. Set your budget


Assess your resources: Consider what resources (such as time, budget, personnel, etc.) you will need to achieve your goals, and assess whether you have those resources available or will need to secure them.


Knowing your goals will help you prepare your business for 2023 and set the appropriate budget.


🟠 Review your financials for the year to see what you spent in 2022. This will give you a baseline budget for 2023.

🟠 What are your current operating costs?

🟠 What does your cash flow look like?

🟠 What revenue can you expect in 2023?

🟠 Where can (or should) your company spend more money?

🟠 Where can you cut expenses?


With a thoughtful and data-driven approach, you can create a reasonable and achievable budget for 2023.



5. Identify potential obstacles


🟠 Square Away Payments


If you have any outstanding invoices from the past year, you should do your best to get them squared first. The longer it takes to make payments, the more room customers have to try and wriggle away without paying at all



7. Organize yourself digitally


Organizing your calendar can be a helpful way to take control of your business and stay on top of your responsibilities. Here are a few ways that organizing your calendar can benefit your business:


🟠 Improved efficiency: By organizing your calendar, you can ensure that you are using your time effectively and efficiently. This can help you get more done in less time, which can be especially important if you have a lot of competing demands on your time.

🟠 Better time management: By scheduling your tasks and appointments in advance, you can avoid last-minute rushing and make sure that you have enough time to complete everything that you need to do. This can help you stay focused and avoid feeling overwhelmed.

🟠 Greater control: By organizing your calendar, you can take control of your schedule and prioritize the tasks and activities that are most important to your business. This can help you stay focused on your goals and ensure that you are making progress towards your business objectives.

🟠 Improved communication: By sharing your calendar with your team or clients, you can improve communication and coordination around meetings and deadlines. This can help everyone stay on the same page and avoid misunderstandings or conflicts.

Overall, spending some time organizing your calendar can be a simple but powerful way to take a hold of your business and improve your productivity and effectiveness.



8. Don't forget GRATITUDE!


As you push harder for a successful 2023, I encourage you to start with an attitude of gratitude. Reflect on the positive things that happened last year and the wonderful people you have in your life (family, friends, employees, and customers).


It’s easy to get carried away with what went wrong and what you need to change but before you go down that road, take time to acknowledge what went right and the people who helped in achieving your goals.
