New Year’s Day is the day to make New Year’s Resolutions and a
It is a reset button for every Contractor business on January 1st of every year. The previous tax year ends on December 31st. Final expenses for December will be coming in by email or US Mail.
New Year’s Resolutions I have ever seen have been was all about doing More of This and Less of That
Even in the most general terms with a few details. Start with a few notes, outline or a brief memo. Resolutions should not be so detailed and complex that it becomes a chore you before you even get started. If you make it a Chore then it will never get done. A project with too much detail becomes tedious, makes you frustrated, irritated and never gets done.
Maybe the New Year’s Resolution is the following: Be, Do, Have.
Choose your own goals on what and how much details your New Year’s Resolutions should be.
If you want to write a full-blown Business Plan For Your Contracting Comany; put it on the list. For a very detailed oriented person; writing a business plan will easily become a complex report with graphs and charts.
For others, it is a big step to create New Year’s Resolution of more than three things. New Year’s Resolutions do not have to be big, long, or complex. Your mind will think about your goals, fill in the blanks, guide you on the next thing to do.
I chat with Contractors every day. They tell me their stories.
About their challenges in running a business, keeping up with the
bookwork (accounting and bookkeeping). About estimating and bidding
jobs, doing the work and collections from clients. Having or not
having employees. Paying their taxes.
To help you – I have written your New Years Resolution for you.
Sharie’s New Year’s Resolution For Contractors
Resolutions Are Personal - Do you post them somewhere or put
For most of us, starting small and being successful is more positive than “Huge Ironclad Goals” that become a Daily Chore that deep down you know is unreachable.
Make Doing and Thinking about your Resolutions a moment of happiness. Your Life constantly changes. Sometimes it is a Walk, Sprint, A Quick Jog and for some, every day is A Marathon.
Life Happens. If you can separate out the Goals from The Wish List (Win The Lottery) then it is much easier to be happy. Yes, Buy a Lottery Ticket – You might win. The object is that you do not become obsessed with Winning The Lottery that you Must Buy a Lottery Ticket to every game every week.
Keep It Simple. Think Sports; Bask in Success of Win. Think about the Loss; then move on to Next.
Your time is the most valuable commodity that you have. Think, Make a Decision, Move On. Sometimes what didn’t happen is a good thing. Several “Oldies But Goodies” Country Songs come to mind. (About Yes, No, Staying or Moving On – key word is movement)
What can you Repeat to make 2017 a better year for you in Your Business Life and Your Personal Life?
Remember Bigger is not necessarily Better. Enjoy your day – Everyday.
