New Year, New Goals

We have been busy working on business plans for a local non-profit group as well as learning to write proposals for grant requests. We haven’t got everything nailed down quite yet but we are diligently educating ourselves.

We are also reevaluating our own business and marketing plans. In just one year, we have changed as a business and so have some of our goals.

We have started early so that we are prepared for the new year.  What are you doing to prepare your business for the new year?

Quote from Jacob A. Riss

Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before. ~Jacob A. Riis


Quote from Tom DeMarco and Timothy Lister

There are a million ways to lose a work day, but not even a single way to get one back. ~Tom DeMarco and Timothy Lister


How to Prioritize When Everything Is a Priority by Greg McKeown

I am constantly pulled in different directions. Usually, I say yes to every request that comes my way. I try to do everything whether it is business or personal and I find myself in a mass of nerves crying in a corner. Figuratively people not literally.

I have had to realize that I cannot do everything for everyone. I have had to learn to delegate and trust others do the task that I have assigned them. So far this has worked out. I am not a bundle of nerves and things get done a lot of faster; sometimes, even better than I could have done them.

My problem comes when I am prioritizing. With two business to manage, I constantly think every thing needs to done right now. Greg McKeown has some great tips in his article How to Prioritize When Everything is a Priority that I plan to use starting today.
