This is a question that we have been asking ourselves this week – do businesses in our industry feel that 2020 is a write off or are they still pushing to achieve goals set for this year? We did a poll on our Instagram account and shockingly 43% of people who responded said yes 2020 is a write off!
We are here to say 2020 doesn’t have to be. You don’t need to set goals just in January, in fact as the world has changed since March then it might be a good idea to re-visit your goals and tweak them a little. Start goal setting and then work in 90 day chunks of actions that need to take place. Using 90 days is a great tool as you can pivot and change if required after the 90 days results are in. We have a great free tool for you our popular Productivity Planner click here to download and start using today.
We still have six months of the year left to grow our businesses or at least get them to a stable and profitable place. The key is to set goals and plan your actions. Every action should move you one step closer to your goals. I know it isn’t easy particularly if, like me, you have small (or big) children at home that have their own demands and home school tasks. However, we need to push on and not stand still.
There is solid proof that clients are still buying design and build services, most of us are having the busiest time for enquiries in years! Yes, not all of them have been the right clients BUT it is time to use your enquiry vetting and interview techniques to weed those out and be brave to turn away projects that are not the right fit for you or your business.
