I found some excellent information for all of you business owners who are thinking about your new year with Stampin' Up! Goals are important: "If you want to succeed, you need to set goals. Without goals you lack focus and direction. Goal setting not only allows you to take control of your life's direction; it also provides you a benchmark for determining whether you are actually succeeding."
Mind Tools recommends these 5 Golden Rules for Success:
1 Set Goals That Motivate You
2 Set SMART goals
3 Set Goals in Writing
4 Make an Action Plan
5 Stick with it
You can read more about each of these steps at Mind Tools
Accountability Partners use these tools to reach success. Because these goals are shared with a partner, they are written and the action plan is clear. And, because they share their progress with a partner, they are motivated to "stick with it".
