New Year, New Goals

It's a new year and time to make some new goals for your shop! Just a few things to remember as you plan:
  1. Be realistic. Challenge yourself but not so much that you can't accomplish your goal. Take into account your daily life, emergencies, holidays and vacations, capabilities, and resources.
  2. Be focused. Instead of having a whole list of goals, narrow it down to three important ones or one long-term goal with a few short-term goals that will help you reach the big one.
  3. Be flexible. Understand that things may happen that can change your goals, for better or worse. Adjust accordingly and move forward.
  4. Be positive. Take one day at a time. Congratulate yourself for your efforts and improvements. But be honest with yourself too: if you're getting lazy, give yourself a pep talk and get back to work!
  5. Be organized. Keep a journal of your successes and failures so you know what worked and what didn't as you achieve your goals. 
Good luck!
