- Purpose Driven – Your resolutions should be created with a sense of purpose. Do not create a resolution because it worked for someone else or it sounds nice. Your resolutions should be specific to you and your business. If there is an area of your business that you see needs improvement, create a resolution to tackle that area.
- Attainable – Sometimes when people dream, they dream big. That is great and leads to many a wonderful things; however, once you set a goal think of simple steps to make that dream a reality. Simple steps are more easily attainable because they break down larger goals into manageable pieces. This then instils a sense of accomplishment and can power positive thinking to provide momentum to conquer the next step.
- Stay Positive – Speaking of positive thinking, have you heard that old adage “an object in motion tends to stay in motion”? The same is true to positive thinking. Positive thinking leads to more positive thinking. Training yourself to stay positive and focus on the bright side leads to forward thought and better performance.
- Create Routine – Let’s say you have resolved to arrive at your salon 30 minutes earlier each day to get a jump-start on the day. Altering your current routine can help. If you lay out clothes, prepare energy snacks, and prepare lunches for the week on Monday nights, think how much stress and time you can save on weekday mornings! Create a routine that sets you up for success.
- Be Aware – Self-awareness is crucial to the success of any business. When it comes to resolutions be mindful of how certain actions help or hinder your goals. If something is hindering your resolution through self-awareness you can take steps to rectify the action.
