Gearing up for 2011

Mid September is a good time to start planning for 2011, if you have not already done so.  By the end of this month you will have a pretty accurate picture of where your business is at. I am a great believer in working in 3's

  • Identify the top 3 positive actions you took year to date - how can they be duplicated for 2011
  • Identify the 3 most negative actions you took year to date - ensure they are not repeated in 2011
  • Select 3 mentors for aspects of your business where you need to improve/learn and follow them
  • Select your 3 top competitors and analyse 3 things they do better and 3 things they do worse than you
  • Incorporate your competitors' 9 strengths into your business
  • Leverage your competitors' 9 weaknesses 
  • Define your Goals/Objectives for 2011- Financial, Branding, Social Responsibility
