It seems 2015 flew by, and now it’s time to prepare for and welcome 2016. Do you have any unfinished business from 2015 that will spill over into 2016? What about any New Year’s resolutions?
Abraham Lincoln said:
“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.”
If you are one of many that do make resolutions each year, we suggest reviewing your vision, mission, and goals (VMG) and making sure they are aligned with your new resolutions.
Is your Vision: A dream or aspiration that you as the leader have for yourself and your organization? Does it provide direction and guidance for achieving your new resolutions?
Does your Mission: Represent what you want done and help you carry out your vision? It ideally will add clarity to your vision, make it more personal, and support the attainment of new resolutions.
Are your Goals action driven? They should bring 100 percent clarity to your vision, mission, and resolutions and they should require action. Think in terms of what, when, how, and by whom.
Lastly, do you measure your progress? In order to succeed we need to know if we are on track, or if our direction and supporting behaviors require modification.
Take a few minutes to assess your 2015 accomplishments.
- What went well?
- What would you like to see repeated?
- What would you like to do differently?
- Is there one single thing you would like to change?
Wishing you a Happy, Healthy, and Successful 2016!
