Planning is Essential Part 1: Reflection
We all know that planning is an essential part of life, especially when it comes to running a business. Did you know that reflection is equally important? With less than two months left in 2017, it’s time to reflect on the past year and start planning for 2018. We must take the time to reflect upon our past and be forward thinking to reach our true potential.
It is through reflection that we help create a different path for our future. People are typically more motivated at the beginning of every year. They make new year’s resolutions, create an elaborate plan and then, typically, lose their motivation somewhere and slip into their comfort zone. This is when history begins to repeat itself. It is through reflection that we change our habits and start progressing.
Throughout the next week, we encourage you to take some time to reflect on your New Earth business. Now is not a time to be gentle with yourself; it’s a time to be brutally honest. This honesty will only help you grow in the future.
Here are a few questions you will want to answer as you go through this process:
- What were the positives? What did I do well? What are my strengths?
- What was challenging? Where were my weak areas? What should I be sure not to repeat?
- How have I grown? What lessons have I learned? What have I accomplished?
- Was I being a leader and contributing to my team?
- Have I taught my team how to duplicate?
- Did my team grow? How many customers? How many associates? How many preferred customers?
- Do I have a team filled with brand advocates who are attending events?
- What were my habits? Did I lose focus during certain times of the year?
This reflection process is going to provide a solid base to start planning for 2018. We will take a deeper look at the next phase of this process next week.
Your Algae Story
It is simply amazing what our bodies do for us when we provide them with the highest quality nutrients. Consuming wild, natural superfoods like AFA, avoiding highly processed and sugar-laden foods, drinking plenty of H20, and incorporating movement into our daily lives allows our bodies to perform at their highest potential.
We truly have a life-changing product at hand. We would like to know how New Earth products have had a positive impact on your life. What is your New Earth story? We would love to hear it! Share it with us at [email protected]*.
