There’s no better time than the end of the year to create a brand new action plan. If your results have been lackluster, why keep doing the same thing and getting the same results? It’s time to focus on those things that are working for you and add some new, more effective actions into the mix.
Strategic planning doesn’t have to take forever. Follow this tried and true five day process and you’ll be well on your way to improvement for the new year.
Starting today you’ll begin your five day strategic action plan for the new year. Your first step is to take a look at where you are right now. Take out a piece of paper and determine where you are now and who you provide that product or service to. For details, visit Strategic Action Plan — Day One.
When creating an action plan for your business, it’s important to look at what you aren’t doing so well. It’s also critical to take a look at why those things aren’t working. What’s stopping you? Where have you run into a wall that’s keeping you from being more successful? Today we’ll take a look at that. So pull out a piece of paper and spend about an hour answering the questions at Strategic Action Plan — Day Two.
Most small business owners don’t have a clue where they want to take their business. They just let it happen to them. And if you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there. But is that what you really want? Wouldn’t you rather create success than let it happen to you? So, what future do you want? That’s what you’ll work on today. Pull out a piece of paper and get started on the questions at Strategic Action Plan — Day Three.
Okay so you’ve spent three days writing down important information about your business. You’ve identified where you are right now as a result of this year’s actions and where you want to take your business. You’ve taken a look at who your customer really is. You’ve identified what has gone well and what hasn’t gone so well and thought about what might be holding you back. Now it’s time to create some goals. Did I hear you groan? This is really the best part. Hop on over and follow the process at Strategic Action Plan — Day Four.
Now it’s time to create the road map you will work by over the next few months. In this step you’ll take all the information you’ve captured and create a month-by-month plan for action. The key to remember is your success is dependent on your action. If you do all this work and never take any action on it, you’ve wasted a bunch of time. Time you don’t have to waste — right? So here we go. Let’s take those goals you created yesterday and break them down into achievable pieces. Visit Strategic Action Plan — Day Five now.
