A pat on the back before you move on

Instead of focusing on things you didn’t get done in the last 12 months I think
this time of the year is perfect for looking back on what you DID achieve – before you make any resolutions for the New Year…

…here’s a little memory jog to review what you achieved:

• In the last 12 months I grew… my turnover, my profit, my team, my
premises, my database, my business relationships…

• In the last 12 months I got to grips with and learnt more about… attracting the right customers and where they come from, how much they spend with me on average, what makes them happy… (and what makes ME  happy!)

• In the last 12 months I cut pruned or trimmed….costs, poor customers,
unsuitable employees, time spent on unimportant work…

• In the last 12 months I got better at… my role, leadership, dealing with
overwhelm, making money, my potential, clearing my emails, delegating
jobs I no longer have to/want to do…

• In the last 12 months I unlocked or locked-In …the secret to my success,
great marketing that works, new awesome customers, new contracts, new

• In the last 12 months I finished, refined or smoothed… some systems,
debt collection, teamwork, policies and procedures, customer service…

• In the last 12 months I cleaned out… some old junk I didn’t need –
including stock, got rid of some roadblocks or beliefs that were holding me
back; the bottlenecks in our delivery process; cleared the blockage in our

• In the last 12 months I fell down, got up, went sideways, moved
forwards… and learnt a lot more about business and myself

Take a big pat on the back – you deserve it!

Now go kick some Seriously Fun business butt in 2014…

  1. Logically the points do make sense, however for me:I enjoy checking my stats, prgrmaoming, building websites, and many times writing content. It may cost me in the long run financially but I’m much happier doing things myself, it’s the reason I play this game.

  2. Learning to think is about seeing both sides of an issue and learning to think – instead of being controlled by your small minded opinions may save humanity from its path of destruction.Not being able to think is our problem and anything that encourages that must be good.

  4. Amanda Lee has posted the article I’ve been looking for – “How to Make Heels Bearable“! I will be trying out these tips as soon as I can find a nice pair of heels that actually

  5. , I've had a couple of great meals at Le Cafe Anglais, the parmesan custard with anchovy soldiers is sublime and points to Mr Leigh, who unlike many chefs and restaurateurs, is actually there most of the time.

  6. NB I hit “Submit” too early. Should have added that responsibility lies with the person indulging in the destructive behavior at all times, and that “addiction” does not mean “cannot help it”.

  7. “Every article will have a $49 price and a “Purchase Now” link to your shopping cart.” Not if they are all Open Access. As they should be. As they will be sooner or later. That is another element in the chicken-and-egg game: more there are papers that are OA, more easily it will be to persuade MSM to link to them; more the MSM implements links, more the journals will feel the pressure to make their papers OA.
