According to Forbes.com, there was a fascinating study conducted on the 1979 Harvard MBA program where graduate students were asked “have you set clear, written goals for your future and made plans to accomplish them?” The result, only 3% had written goals and plans, 13% had goals but they weren’t in writing and 84% had no goals at all. Ten years later, the same group was interviewed again and the result was absolutely mind-blowing.
So here are the steps you can follow to take time away from the day to day of your work to ultimately make more money from your time out:
- Block out an uninterrupted day in your calendar to look at where you are at in your game at this point in the year.
- Determine, based on your current numbers if you are on track for reaching your goals, exceeding your goals or are you short of desired goals to date?
- Take an opportunity to celebrate what is working, look and see what you need to do differently, and where you can capitalize on opportunities.
- Develop a new game plan to overcome existing challenges so that you can finish the second part of the year strong.
