T’is the season to be…planning

December 7, 2009

Christmas is a great time for most people. Unless you work in retail, the period between Christmas day and New Year it is also one of the quietest periods of time in the business calendar. So when you have had your festive cheer and done you’re shopping, the few days after Christmas is a great time to clear your head and assess your situation. Ask yourself questions like how did your year go? What worked well and what didn’t? What opportunities exist with your current clients? What goals and objectives do you want to set for the next business period?

Remember to do this planning when you have cleared your head and are in a relaxed and reflective frame of mind. When you are chasing business or working whilst trying to think about setting up a new business, the day-to-day activities tend to take over and you are left firefighting rather than working a thought out plan.

In either case have a great Christmas, we have all deserved it having survived 2009. The objective of planning is to make 2010 a much better year than this one…bring it on!

Happy Christmas or as we say in the Irish language ‘Nollaig shóna duit’
