Today’s career tip: It’s never too early to start planning for 2015. Start planning now for your best year EVER.
There are still 45 days left of 2014 and this is by far the earliest I have ever created goals for the new year. I am usually the person who puts it all together on January 1st…after my new year’s celebration.
This year is different. I will be going on a three week vacation to Australia in December which has spurred me to start early. I also have a lot of exciting plans for my business in 2015. I want them all flushed out and on paper so when I get back on December 31st, I am ready to hit the ground running in my business.
Someone asked me on Facebook the process I go through to plan the new year. So here you go! Hopefully this provides you with a template to follow as well when you get ready for next year.
Step 1: 2014 Reflection: What went great in 2014 and what didn’t?
Step 2: 2015 Goals: What are my top 3 business goals that I want to focus on in the new year?
