With the year rapidly coming to a close, many people talk about New Year Resolution and, on a personal level, they are always good to give you a focus going into a new period of time. However, like any challenge they will only succeed if the individual or business wants to change and adapt.
Many clients I work with are looking to evolve and enable themselves to improve efficiency, grow or change to meet different market needs. However, some talk the talk but don’t walk the walk and it is these businesses that will struggle to be successful.
My job is to get these organisations to engage in the change and to walk the walk. This can often take a considerable amount of time, but ultimately the end results are always worth it. In every project we talk about objectives and what the individual and organisation want to achieve, often this can be the hardest part of the process. Once a team have identified, rather than being told, what they want to achieve, the engagement often comes more easily. The same can be said for New Year’s Resolutions. Only do things because you want to but be prepared to push yourself to achieve the end goal.
So, my note to finish off the year is that New Year’s Resolutions are good, but you shouldn’t wait till New Year to give yourself or your business objectives. If change is needed, think about what it is and what you want to achieve, you will then have a goal to aim for and will be more likely to achieve the results you want.
