Yesterday, we pledged two key business resolutions for the coming year — not to burn any bridges with departing clients and to listen more attentively. Today, we will get more into the nitty gritty of our business product.
My third business resolution involves social media and search engine optimization. We resolve to spend the first hour of every day on improving our corporate results in this field, so we don’t miss any days with our blog and postings. I know from experience that leaving social media for the afternoon is less productive as well as increasing the chances of blowing it off for the entire day. To go six days a week for an entire year may seem like an enormous task, but, as they say, the longest journey begins with a single step.
Our final resolution may be more difficult to keep, especially since it is affected by client deadlines. But where possible, we would like to leave any writing product overnight after it is completed so we can look at it with a fresh eye in the morning. This will improve the editing process and increase the quality of our work significantly.
Making resolutions for the New Year is a productive process, full of hope for self-improvement, and there is no reason why we can’t apply the same desire for our businesses. What are your New Year business resolutions?
