2013 is coming to a close and things can be pretty quiet business-wise. That makes this the perfect time to look back on the previous year and make a plan for the next. Here’s how to wrap up 2013 and make 2014 your most successful year yet.
It’s a good idea to measure you success at the end of each month and keep a running document of this information. Even if you haven’t been too good at keeping track of this information in 2013, you can still easily assess the year. Ask yourself a few key questions. What was my biggest success? What was my biggest challenge? How often did I lose a team member? How much time did I spend on building my business with GDI each week? What bonuses did I earn? The answers to these questions can give you a simple overview of your year and allow you to get brainstorming for 2014.
Set 2014 Goals
Based on the answers to the above questions and what you hope to achieve in 2014, it’s time to set some new hard goals and deadlines. These goals can be based on numbers, like how many hours put into building your business, or how close you are to your Duplication Bonus. You can also set goals based on personal growth and helping others, like making sure to watch our Tutorial Videos, or to helping to answer questions new affiliates may have on Facebook.
Make Plans to Reach Those Goals
Now that you’ve set your goals, you need to take the time to write out the steps that will help you achieve those goals, like we did below:
