The end of the financial year is fast approaching and, generally, most people in business are thinking about ways they can maximise their income and minimize the tax they pay.
And, whilst that is good business sense it may only give you results at the margin.
So here’s something you can do that will give you huge results and enormous benefits in every aspect of your life!
Simply complete the checklist I’ve attached from the book “How to Motivate, Manage & Market Yourself!” which I co-authored with Lisa and Daniel. Then, when you have done so, think about the low scoring areas you’d like to improve upon… and work on them.
In particular, I reckon that the most important step you can take is to decide on some goals and commit to achieving them. Not huge goals or long timelines but rather what you would like to achieve by, say, the end of this year.
Taking the time to think about your goals and setting them is the hardest step. Once you can clearly see where you want to go getting there becomes so much easier!
You’ll be amazed at what you achieve and, when you do your next review (I’d suggest that oughta be when you think about your New Year resolutions) do it all over again!
It will work for you… gangbusters!
