New Year – Time to Think About A Boost To YOUR Career

As Christmas is fast approaching and many of us reflect on the past year our thoughts begin shift to the future – How can we improve ourselves – Our focus is on planning, setting goals not just in business but across the areas of our life – what will 2019 hold for you?

We have come up with a few questions to ask yourself to help you find your focus and realise your dreams and goals for the coming year;

  1. Do you feel you are showcasing the best version of you?
  2. Are you earning what you are worth?
  3. Is you business generating the profits you deserve?
  4. Are you efficient but yet effective in your role?
  5. Do you have the skill set to be the best at what you do?
  6. Are you a critical driver in your business?
  7. Does your CV sell you?
  8. Are you a leading edge, innovator in your team?
  9. Are you a reveneue generator through your efforts?
  10. Do you love what you do?

In January an article in the Independent said almost half of UK employees still expect to be looking for a new job in 2018. I wonder what 2019 stats will be!

I love my job but as a business owner I design my role so it would be my fault if I didn’t!

It is easy to get caught up in being too busy so I write a list every week with anything I didn’t enjoy and delegate that then take on something new in exchange.

I block out time in my diary and often my best work ideas are created when I have this headspace.

I set a goals across the 8 key areas of my life each month

  1. well-being
  2. family
  3. work
  4. friends
  5. relationships
  6. adventure
  7. money
  8. home

So last Christmas my partner and I agreed to create a list of 12 things we’d love to do in 2018 – we chose 1 a month – creating memories!

My 3 new swaps are;

  1. I hate 5am starts so next year I’m travelling the night before.
  2. January is a bit lack lustre so going to Mexico
  3. I’m going to share a tip each week for a year that I’ve used in my journey as an entrepreneur entitled ‘52 to improve you’ launches December
