Though we’re nearly a month into the new year, it’s never too late to make a resolution and do something different. Perhaps you’ve already made resolutions in your personal life; now it’s time to focus on your professional career.
In 2020 and beyond, get ready to rock with our top resolutions for entrepreneurs.
Update Your Website or Blog
Making small changes to your website or blog can breathe new life into your online persona. Maybe you need to update your business hours or address, or perhaps you have a new idea to share with your readers. Whatever the change, it shows you’re still active in your business and care about the experience you provide.
It’s also a relatively quick and easy fix, so there’s no reason not to prioritize it.
Keep Track of Your Finances
If you can’t say with confidence how much you’re making per hour, what you’re spending each month, and what your cash flow looks like without some heavy research, you’re not keeping good track of your finances.
Make 2020 the year to focus on the financial aspect of your business so you can trim costs before you need to and remain profitable.
Revisit Abandoned Projects
Just because a project fell off your radar doesn’t mean it’s not worth pursuing. Things like timing, budget, or other priorities can keep entrepreneurs from developing some of their best ideas.
If you’re struggling for inspiration or simply have some extra time on your hands, consider revisiting some of your projects that never worked out. You might find yourself better able to overcome the challenges that prevented you from succeeding in the first place. And who knows? It may turn out to be your most profitable idea this year!
Set Reasonable Working Hours
Entrepreneurs rarely know when it’s time to clock out and call it a day. They constantly push themselves and operate in an “always-on” mode in case an opportunity or idea presents itself.
While this seems like passion, purpose, and a driven desire to succeed, it can also be the fastest path to burnout. Eventually, long hours become unproductive and not conducive to creativity or ingenuity.
Consider making it your resolution to set specific working hours, and then stick to them. Turn off your cell phone, unplug your laptop, and start enjoying life outside of work. You may find the mental break to be stimulating and allow you to better utilize your workday.
Find an Office Space that Inspires You
Where you work can have a lot to do with how well you work. Being in places that inspire and allow you to do your best work can help you make better use of your time. More importantly, it can help you to continue enjoying what you do, especially when you’re surrounded by others who want to see you succeed.
