Ready Set Goal posted by: Amy Van Dorp

The beginning of a new year seems a great time to put some new goals in place. I prefer “goals” to “resolutions” because it feels more action oriented. Last year I made a list of goals in my phone. Some were big projects and others small but when I looked back at them recently, I see that I reached all those goals one way or another. 
One of my goals was to help my father clean up his business so he could look to retirement. Frankly, I wasn’t sure what that would look like. After a heartfelt meeting, we decided that what he really needed was an e-commerce site to generate sales of the millions of tractor parts in his building. We built one in February using bigcommerce.com and began listing product. While we were together over the holiday, he gleefully showed me that he had just gotten an order and expressed that he gets an order every day. I have not convinced him to retire yet.
Think about what you’d like to accomplish in your business and personal life this year. Writing your goals down helps get your mind ready for the new intention and working out the steps to get there whether you are aware of it or not. One of our scholarship students told me that she and her roommates create vision boards at the start of every school year. It’s no wonder the she made the most of her conference experience.
Fortunately, your board of directors has already begun setting goals for WithIt starting back in June. Here are some of the goals we are working towards:
Updating our website and adding more functionality for you
Adding more content to our digital library
Focusing the education breakfast on leadership topics
As you start thinking about your New Year, there are many resources in our library that can help you set achievable goals and stick with them.
