new-yearsIt’s that time of the year again, when people look to leave the past behind and create a fresh start for the new year. I do not know if you put any importance on New Year’s resolutions as they have the notoriety of being forgotten after a while. However, I do believe in their importance, especially if you make sure that you achieve these goals. Here are some of my business New Year’s resolutions.

Learn to delegate
This is perhaps one of my greatest failings. I seem to have been taught that “if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.” I cannot pinpoint exactly how I learned to embrace this idea but I find myself living it more and more. Naturally, I have found myself on the edge of breaking down more than once. With all the work that I have to do, if I take on everything else that comes my way, I would not be able to handle things. That is why I need to learn how to delegate certain tasks to other people. Just a thought – make sure that you are surrounded by competent people whom you trust so that you can have peace of mind when delegating task.

Learn something new
I love learning. I can’t have enough of it. Still, I tend to fall back on the old and tested methods that I know will work. This year, I think that I will be more adventurous and learn something totally different that can give my business an edge.
