With the New Year fast approaching, many people are reflecting on the goals they set at the start of 2015 and fearing time is running out to achieve them.
Skyline Marketing, a sales and marketing firm bases in Liverpool, have achieved such rapid growth that they have been named as one of the leaders in the direct sales and marketing industries. They are on track to exceed their sales targets by 9% for 2015 and are confident that there is still time for entrepreneurs and small businesses to make a push in the next few weeks to complete their 2015 goals and resolutions.
Skyline Marketing support budding entrepreneurs through their business development program, and offer workshops and seminars on how to set and achieve targets productively. They believe it’s important for companies to see their 2015 goals through to completion before setting any targets for 2016. With this in mind, they offer the following counsel for best practice in the remaining weeks of the calendar year.
Define and share your goals
Managing Director Jamie Talbot states, “accountability and execution are part of Skyline Marketing’s company culture. We value goal setting very highly, and follow through to ensure we receive great results and recognition for our work.” Skyline Marketing believe that it is advantageous to choose two or three primary goals and then drill them down to the actionable parts that are only dependent on yourself, not others.
Plan of action: begin each day with the hardest task first
Skyline Marketing certainly has seen success with forward planning and goal setting, ensuring each day commences with a clear schedule. Allowing time for hiccups along the way means that there is rarely a crisis that overwhelms the day-to-day operation of the business. MD Jamie Talbot suggests tackling the toughest goal-related task first in the morning, as this strategy will usually ensure for a more productive day for the business.
Recap on accomplishments
Skyline Marketing believes entrepreneurship is a means for anyone to create their own success story at any point in his or her lives. Success can be difficult to define as it comes in many different shapes and sizes, but it is important to acknowledge your own accomplishments and reward yourself accordingly. Immediate rewards often appear more attractive than putting a body of work together for longer-term targets, but you should consistently recap your accomplishments as it may inspire a source of pride, stoking the flames of your motivation.
Downtime spells are important as they help your brain rest and then rebound stock-full of new ideas, but too much downtime can be a hindrance. Skyline Marketing suggest cutting out one time-wasting distraction per day. This, alongside creating to-do lists and making structured plans are all good ways of avoiding distractions over the course of the working day.
