At the beginning of each New Year, it is customary to reflect on the past and look at and set new goals for the New Year.
This can help you have a happier and more prosperous New Year.
Life can get messy and confusing, and like a rookie quarterback facing many onrushing tacklers, even frightening. The solution is to have planned goals already established that you can confidently move towards regardless of the circumstances you face.
Here is a vital tip about goals that is often overlooked:
GOALS NEED REGULAR NOURISHMENT.
Weekly, even daily, a fast reflection on where you are going and WHY helps focus and energize your drive towards them. Once established, you need to take time aside weekly, and more so on a monthly and quarterly basis, to rekindle them and mark your progress towards their achievement. Make adjustments and course corrections as needed.
Do this as a scheduled and determined ritual!
Share them as well. There is nothing better than sharing agreed-upon goals with others and working together to make things better. Work with your patients, your team, and your family to achieve shared goals.
And do this or else!
There are good consequences in doing this and not good consequences if omitted. Other powerful interests have different goals for you and your patients. So does plain old inertia.
In a sense, there are other goals that are always competing to hijack yours.
In this New Year, stay true to your goals, nourish them, and help others do the same.
For more information on how to do this, please read my book, the Goal Driven Business.
Also, stay tuned for a new training program we will be offering on the Goal Driven System. It will be limited to just 10 offices and last for 6 months. Its goal is to train the business owner and manager/senior staff member on the Goal Driven System to transform their practice into a Goal Driven Business. What is a Goal Driven Business?
