Last year was a big one for me. Running a business, finishing a house renovation while trying to manage a large family stretched me completely so that at the end of 2017 I was exhausted. If anything, what I have learnt from the challenges of 2017 is that getting priorities straight is vital!!!
Starting the new-year is a great time to get your priorities in order and figure out what’s important. But as this article points out (insert link..) having “big” goals can sometimes be a bit disheartening and difficult to achieve if they seem a bit overwhelming. It’s important then to break things into smaller chunks, and incorporate new small tasks into a daily routine so that it does not seem as big or overwhelming.
So rather than sharing my big goals, here are my focus areas. My hope is that as I share my thoughts, examples and “small steps” in these areas, you will find them useful for yourself.
- Get clear on what “value” actually means from the customers perspective
- Find the waste and implement simple strategies to eliminate it
- Build a team that is effective and gets the job done and delivers the value that customers are looking for!
Looking forward to an extraordinary 2018 !
