5 New Years Resolutions You Should Make as an Entrepreneur
You may or may not enjoy New Year’s traditions, but as an entrepreneur you should be thinking about these five commitments for 2014.
2013 is nearly over now, and I hope it’s been an exciting year for you. But as entrepreneurs, we tend to think more about the future than we do the past. Planning ahead for 2014, you’ll be able to take a look at the new directions and exciting opportunities your company will discover, and have a chance to plan for your new actions and directives.
I’ve got my own set of personal New Year’s resolutions, but if you’re struggling to come up with some of your own, consider these five resolutions for your business:
- Network more. No matter how much you expand your professional network in the business world, there’s always room for growth. Even if it’s an extra five or ten minutes on LinkedIn, or one extra seminar to attend every month, slightly increasing your exposure to other professionals will give you a substantial increase in resources.
- Stop worrying about small tasks. Like most of us in the business world, you likely found yourself constantly falling to an enormous amount of small, inconsequential tasks rather than your long-term strategic decisions. Resolve to put them out of your mind whenever you can, and free your brainpower for better things.
- Make meetings more productive. If you’ve gotten lost in the routine of meeting regularly, take some time to spice things up. Address points of inefficiency in your meeting style, and encourage all participants to make the meeting something worthwhile.
- Focus less on the failures. Every successful company has a long history of mistakes. Focus less on the mistakes you make, and more on how you’re going to change your processes for the future.
- Take more time for you. As close as you feel to your company, it’s important to take some time away for yourself. Resolve to take more time away from the office doing things that allow you to relax with the people you love.
Here’s to a healthy, bountiful, successful 2014! Happy New Year to all the entrepreneurs and techies out there!
