Want to make your business better in 2018? The Wilton Manors book keepers of Sterling Accounting want to help.
After all, you’re likely making New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, quit a bad habit, or exercise more. So add improving your business life to the list.
Here are a few things to consider as you put together your New Year’s resolutions.
Change comes from within
Before you can make any changes for the better, whether in business or life, you first have to recognize and accept the need for change.
There are plenty of outside pressures to make changes. But truly effective alterations only come when a person is willing to alter their own outlook for the better.
“When you consider how mindset affects everything in our lives, it’s no surprise that it’s the key to achieving our … goals,” Pamela Yellen writes for Entrepreneur.
Yes, change comes from within. But entrepreneurship can be a lonely business. So if you’re hoping to succeed, you need help.
“M. Kathryn Seifert, Ph.D., a Maryland psychologist who operates three mental health clinics, says a coach — whether a professional for hire, a friend or a religious leader — can help people reinforce their commitments,” Yellen writes.
Getting such help can take the weight off your shoulders. But it can also increase the accountability you’ll need to succeed.
Delegate more effectively
Delegation is closely related to collecting allies. And it can be key to a more effective approach to your business.
Don’t delude yourself into the belief that only you can accomplish everything on a mile-long to-do list. Instead, “Make sure your employees are trained enough, to the point where they can take over some of your tasks,” writes Kimberly de Silva for Entrepreneur.
In some cases, the most effective delegation may mean turning to a trusted expert outside your business.
That’s certainly true for accounting. The Wilton Manors book keepers of Sterling Accounting stand ready to help. We are committed to helping clients with their most challenging issues.
