What a year 2020 has been, right? Back in 2019, none of us could have anticipated what was to come. We did not exactly incorporate a pandemic into our goals for the new year. Boy, 2019 feels like so long ago, doesn’t it?
So, amidst all of this, what do we do with our businesses? Do we sit in the pandemic fear? Or do we move forward with intention? Well, to reset 2020 and set ourselves up for huge growth in 2021, we must choose the latter. We must hit the reset button! Here are some tips on how to do that, despite what is going on around us.
Reset your energy and mood. This is the first thing we need to think about as we reset and prep. We need to focus on our goals, their energy and where and how that energy is flowing. Set some habits – gratitude practices, affirmations, listening to playlists that bring on a high vibrational state. Whatever it is, it will help keep you aligned with your GOALS. It will also keep them top of mind, right where they should be. Remember, what you focus on expands – and it works wonderfully into our next tip.
Realign your goals. Do your sales numbers for the rest of quarter four need to be adjusted? Think about what you have in the pipeline for the rest of the year and make a projection. Do you want to hire and onboard a team? Do you want to engage in more training and certifications? Do you want to focus on marketing? Whatever you choose, make sure the goal is achievable and tangible.
Laser focus on what you want to accomplish. Get totally clear on what projects you want to get done and be intentional about what you choose to focus on. Clear any disappointment from the past and move forward with inspired, focused action.
Prepare for wave season. Are you marketing now for our busiest season? Our marketing for this time of year usually hits at about 12 months out! Yes, 12 months prior to the season starting! What campaigns do you have running, what funnels do you have set up, what videos are in the pipeline for promotion? We’re talking a REAL plan. Remember, marketing is the lifeblood of our business and we should be warming up our audiences in quarter four for an explosive 2021.
So, if you have not already, sit down NOW and settle on some goals for the end of the year into 2021. Commit to them and move towards them with a clear plan of action.
