As the new year gets underway, it’s a good time to consider how you will make 2018 your best year ever. Here are our three top tips for Consultants in any field to start and maintain a productive year:
1. Decide how to invest in yourself – it’s in making the decision that great things happen. Book on to 2 to 3 personal development courses this year. Find and speak to a mentor who will help you get to where you want to be. Make sure at least one action takes you right outside of your comfort zone.
2. Outline your Q1 targets – ask yourself some key questions. How will any new customers and contracts give you what you need to achieve your goals? Will the target stretch you? Why do you want it so much (in other words, what’s your motivation for achieving this?) What’s the one action you can take today in order to move closer to your goals?
3. Create an action plan – at its simplest, work out the high net worth projects, map out your campaign to contact at least three new prospects every week, and write three social media posts. Commit to one new campaign every week.
To make 2018 your best year ever, you’ll need a clear vision, the right strategy and a firm commitment to follow through. Nothing good happens without all three.
