New Year, New Goals

The New Year is approaching and for many people that means making a long list of goals to transform their lives. You’ll probably set some personal goals too. Maybe you’ll set a goal to meditate every day, or you’ll set a goal to hit the gym every day and get that body right. In fact, it’s likely that you’ll set multiple goals and you’ll do your best to make them SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time-bound) goals, but the odds say you won’t achieve them.
An article by Inc. says that 92% of people that set New Year’s goals never achieve them. Well, the software at helps you set and achieve your business goals so you can be part of the 8%. Not only does our software help you observe KPIs that are vital to the success of your business, but it also has a goal-setting feature created specifically to help you achieve your business goals.
Startegy software will be a great asset for achieving your business goals, but here are three reasons to set business goals this New Year instead of just setting personal goals.
1. Measure Success. Good organizations are always trying to improve, grow, and become more profitable. Measuring your performance is the easiest way to track improvement and evaluate the success of the company. Measuring performance also allows you to identify trends and the direction your business is heading.
2. Team Cohesion. Setting goals allows everyone within the organization to focus their efforts on the same thing, achieving the goal that has been set. Once the goal has been set, every decision can be made with that goal in mind. Does this hire bring us closer to achieving the goal? Does this financial decision align with our ultimate goal? Suddenly, decisions become much more clear.
3. Provides Motivation. Goals give you something to aspire to. As you start toward your long-term goal, you are able to accomplish short-term goals. Short-term goals are like checkpoints along the way to your ultimate goals and they encourage you along the way. Success breeds success, so success in your short-term goals will translate into achieving your long-term goals as well.
Instead of just focusing on your New Year's resolution to meditate a couple times a week, add a few business goals to your resolution. And make sure you use this year to ensure you’re among the 8% of people that accomplish their New Year's resolutions. Happy Holidays!
