1. Take time out to truly reflect on why you started your business. Are you being true to that initial vision? If not, are you off track and need to reassess and work out how to get back on course? Or is it time to take a new path? Perhaps your values and purpose have changed over time and that’s where your business needs to head too. As Simon Sinek says our ‘why’ – the reason we do what we do, is what inspires individuals and organisations into action.
2. Are you clear on your top values? If not, do a values assessment to understand what your top values are. Values drive our decisions. Plus, when we’re doing work that’s not aligned with our values we feel demotivated, uneasy and even distressed or resentful. I include a personal values identifier workbook in my pre-coaching sessions. You can find details on my 12-week Coaching Program here.
3. Identify your top areas of focus and the goals you want to achieve in each of these areas. Once you’ve defined your goals, map out your strategies and actions to get there.
5. Celebrate those wins – big and small.
7. Embrace innovation and learning – not only does this bring new ideas to your business, but it keeps things fresh, interesting, and inspiring for you.
