Success in 2011 Will Be Determined By Your Planning and Goal Setting For Your 2011 Success

Business Strategy Consultant, Mitch Tublin, wishes you and yours a

Happy New Year!

Business Planning and Goal Setting 2011You have all of your planning and goal setting completed and ready to go by now for the New Year, right?  Ask any person who is successful or read about them.  Every single one of them had a plan to follow.  They had goals to meet, strive for and achieve.  What about you?

Mitch, this is so boring, it is not exciting!  Sorry about that!  It is absolutely critical to do,  so how do we make this process more interesting?

Here is one example for you to have some fun with your planning and goal setting. 

Go to www.staples.com and buy a big white pad of blank sheets like the type you use for a presentation, buy some markers or crayons and buy some sticky notes of different colors like those made by www.shop3m.com now take all of this great fun stuff and lock yourself in a room for one hour.

This is okay to do if you are a work at home business owner or a CEO of your own software company.  We are all people!  What, you tell me, you were never 6 years old once!  Chill out and work with me here.  Bring in a glass of wine if you want to.

Now this is an example, so feel free to use a method that works for you.

Use a black marker and label the top page of one sheet BUSINESS STRATEGY BIG PICTURE.  Now Label another sheet short term goals.  Now label a sheet family, community, friends and giving.

Select a new color and begin on the last page.  List everything you want to do with your family, in your community and for charity this year.

You see this is why you do what you do isn’t it?

Now select another color and list in order the main items near term you need to achieve in your business.  For example: build a list or make money.

List five items in their order of priority.

It is time for a new color.  Business Strategy Big Picture is our next item.  Take a deep breath and dive in.  What drives you to do what you do?  What are your ideas? Just let it go!  Write down your big dreams.

Fill up the page.

So you tell me. Was this so painful?  You now have the initial foundation for creating your plans and goal setting activities for 2011.

How Do You React When Something Goes Wrong?

How Do You React When Something Goes Wrong?

“Well in a perfect world…..”   Have you ever said these words or heard them stated?  If we lived in a perfect world you would never have to worry about something going wrong as nothing would ever go wrong.

Breaking News – we do not live in a perfect world!

There are different levels of what may go wrong in our lives on a daily basis.  In addition, there are different situations we are in when something may go wrong in terms of your audience and who is around you and influenced by how you react.  You may be around other people, or your family, children or even a large audience. Things will go wrong in our business no matter how much we plan. Part of life is things just happen. It is how we react when something goes wrong which makes us who we are and in many ways determine the level of success you will achieve.

In each combination how you react says quite a bit about you and what people think about you.
Here are a few situations you may have found yourself in. What was your reaction?

For example – You are driving in your car and then you are cut off by another driver. How do you react?  How do you react when this happens and your kids are in the car with you?

I know growing up in New York City, the horn and the bird flip were fairly common practices seen daily on any roadway.  Stop at a traffic light after the incident and heads shouting out the window “Hi, how are you” often followed – Not!

Another example – In running your business, how do you react when someone on your team puts out some work on the internet that is riddled with errors?   Are you able to handle the situation as a teaching moment and rise up and above?

The incident happened already.  Your ability to teach and team build is right here in front of you.  Do you take it?

How is the corrective action carried out?  These are all moments to use in creating a stronger team for your future business growth.

A Recent Example – Do you speak at events in front of a large audience?  What would you do if there were microphone or sound system issues? How would you handle yourself out on the stage in front of several hundred audience members who are mostly fans?

The specific point is if you are an expert and plan to be in front of others representing your business and your brand, you must be able to have the control and the presence to relax and go with the flow. Are you able to relax and maintain your presence?
