I know you were really motivated at the first of the year about your goals. You may have already accomplished the things on your list. But if you’re like most small business owners, the real world has taken over and you are struggling to find time to achieve those important actions you worked so hard to define.
And you’re not alone. According to the 4th Annual Staples National Small Business Survey, more than 80 percent of small-business owners admit they don’t monitor their goal-setting or enlist the proper “coaches” and advisors to help them achieve their goals.
Here’s help. Staples has created the Staples stickK to It! Business Challenge to keep you on track. Participants in the challenge choose from five different goal setting focus areas.
1) Get Organized/Increase Productivity
2) Professional Development
3) Maximize Your Bottom Line
4) Green Your Office
5) Improve Working Environment.
Once you select a focus area, you will select specific commitments and personalize them to best fit your needs and objectives. You can also identify colleagues to help keep you on track. I joined up and will be having my mastermind group and my small business blog readers hold me accountable.
