2017 - A New Year - So What Will You Do Different?


 
Here is a thought for the start of a new year.
"Whiteboards are remarkable."
Okay, so maybe not LOL funny, but it reminds us that with the new year, we have a new opportunity for evaluation, dreams, and goals for 2017 that can guide us where we want to go. We can wipe the board clean of 2016 and create a new direction for 2017.
 
Here is a list of the five most popular personal resolutions made most every year.
#5 - Take up a new hobby.
#4 - Make more money.
#3 - Improve relationships.
#2 - Stop smoking.
#1 - Losing weight.

The resolution on losing weight reminds me of a story that might hit too close to home for most of us. A woman walked into her bathroom at home. As she did, she saw her husband weighing himself on the bathroom scales, sucking in his stomach. The woman thought to herself, "He thinks that he will weigh less by sucking in his stomach." So, the woman rather sarcastically said to her husband, "That’s not going to help." Her husband said, "Sure it will. It’s the only way I can see the numbers."

The perception of the husband's actions was different than the reality.  He was not trying to affect the results of the number, rather he was trying to see his weight.  In other words, he was looking for a measurement to confirm the reality of his weight.  He knew a few pounds can sneak up and latch on to you during the holidays. 
So, what unwanted result latched on to your business in 2016?  Do you have a way of "weighing" the effect of those unhealthy habits?  What alterations do you need to make to accommodate the changes that 2016 brought your way? What actions do you need to take to get your business healthy again?  Do you have business partners that can help you get healthy?  Can they help you with measurements? Reports?  Implementation?
