Can you believe it’s almost 2017! For many of us it’s time to look back and reminisce and maybe set a new direction for our professional and personal lives.
Some resolutions might include becoming healthier by eating better, or going to the gym more often. If a fitness tracker is on your Santa list, you’ll be all set to improve your activity level during the day by getting up from your desk and walking around more often. Don’t forget that overall well-being and health is important to running a successful business!
January gives us a sense of beginning, starting fresh with a clean slate. It’s a great opportunity to think strategically about how you can make your business more successful as well as set personal goals like fitness. Are you growing your business in 2017? Or is this the year you set-off on your own with a new professional service business?
We are all familiar with the term infra-structure, used to describe roads and services within our community. But if you are expanding your business or starting up a new one, you need to think about your office environment as the infra-structure for your company. We’d love to talk to you about what businesses typically need for a successful infra-structure, from computer networks, to phone systems, to meeting rooms. So if your 2017 resolutions include running your business better, give us a call to find how we can help.
What other resolutions do you have? Is one to get organized?
Being well organized can be a key to success. It helps your productivity and this means you can get more projects done. It can also improve creativity, because clutter and disorganization can be a stress and drain energy. Sometimes the root of disorganization is lack of space – space for storage, or even work surface space. Take a look at how you store printed materials and see if you can remove inactive files to an archive location. Clear the surfaces and you’ll be ready to take on a new task.
Resolutions can be specific goals.
Turn a resolution into a goal by making it SMART. The best way to plan your goals is by using the S.M.A.R.T. acronym. Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely. Think about defining your goal this way and you’ll be sure to succeed.
Resolutions are about improvement.
Do you need to meet new clients or people in your business community to network? It can be a big challenge for anyone working from home. Or maybe you want to improve your professional image? Why not become a SuiteWorks client and improve in both areas at once.
