Time to refresh some of that old, worn out stuff. Take a look around your office. Or better yet, have a trusted colleague do it for you. What needs to be replaced? What needs to be upgraded to bring your business presence more in line with what you offer? Here are some things to consider.
- Computer — Are you still chugging along on that computer you got five years ago? Can you swing purchasing a new one with the budget you’ve established for this year? Considering that technology moves so fast, your productivity could increase considerably just by getting a new computer.
- Software — What needs to be upgraded? What new software do you need to accomplish the goals you’ve set forth this year? Is the software you need available via online license or must you purchase a whole new package?
- Office Supplies — The last thing you want to do is run out of supplies during the critical moments of a project. Take a look at that supply cabinet and see what needs renewing.
- Office Space — With that trusted colleague in hand, walk through your office using that person’s critical eye. What could use some rearranging or sprucing up?
That should get you started. What other new things need to be considered to kick off your year on the right foot? Leave me a comment.
