It’s almost 2019.
I am looking forward to 2019 but I definitely want it to be different to 2018.
Particularly with business.
2018 has been a really bitty year.
Zigging and zagging all over the place with the two businesses I run.
Overcomplicated approaches to communicating the businesses.
Sprinting and jogging in business (both are important) but I am not sure I was always doing the right one at the right time.
I wasn’t as disciplined and hard working as I should have been.
I got distracted far too easily and I prioritised badly.
I had no single strategy that I stuck to.
I wasn’t as organised and structured as I could have been.
So in 2019, I’ll:
- Plan better.
- Implement the plans better.
It’s tricky when I am not answerable in the day-to-day to anyone, though.
So I will remember who I want to be proud of me, and who will benefit from what the businesses are actually trying to do.
That last bit is key. It’s what drives me.
The people I want to be proud of what I am up to are (no particular order):
- Anyone at all that helps me to build brand and business.
- Anyone that interacts with and can benefit from the brands and the brand’s ‘why‘ in any way.
I’ll read this again.
P.S. I’m going to have a lot of fun though.
Otherwise, what’s the point?
Happy New Year.
