Sometimes it’s easy to find excuses for not achieving our goals. Perhaps the goal is not that important: ‘Oh, I’ll sort it next week’. Sometimes it’s too ambitious: ‘You expect me to climb that mountain on my own?’ But there are other reasons why goals work for some and not for others – and the answer is in simplicity…
To run a successful business means to be good in many areas. Starting with developing the right ideas to managing the existing infrastructure and the technical aspect of the day to day work. Each of those areas requires different skills, but all of them together are vital to run a successful business.
If you want to be successful in business, you need to be the best you can be in your field. But as your start-up gains momentum – and you become increasingly involved in all aspects of the business – how do you acquire the skills and knowledge to survive in the future?
Why is it that so many of us are notoriously bad in meeting the goals we set? Of course, we’re only too quick to spout our excuses: lack of motivation, clarity and accountability being the usual suspects. But you can change all that by following four golden rules to set the right goals.
Your trusted, but ageing, car has broken down. It’s going to be expensive to repair. Should you scrap it and buy another car? But which make, what model, what colour…how much should you spend?

In spite of all your efforts, there are times when you start to think ‘enough is enough’. The business isn’t turning out how you imagined – and that great business idea isn’t as great as you first thought. But it doesn’t have to be this way. With the right foundations to build upon, it can work!

So what can we do about overcoming these uneasy feelings? Like so many things, prevention is better than cure – and it all begins with taking control.
Like it or not, change is happening all around us every minute of the day. And there, we have a choice. Go with the flow and accept that those changes will happen anyway. Or become the instigator that puts you in control of the changes you’d like to see in your life? Isn’t it time you had a change of mind?
You have to admire couples who celebrate 60 or more years of marriage. Personality, loyalty and commitment are among the many reasons for their successful and long term partnership. But how does it work in business? And just how do you find the right partner?
Like it or not, change is happening all around us. Day turns into night. Spring turns into summer. Ans where time and nature are concerned, we have no control of those changes. In other aspects of our lives we do have the power of change. Not interested in that TV programme? Grab the remote and change it…or just bark out a voice command to your AI device. But what about changes in your life? That takes courage. Have you got what it takes?
It’s become a bit of a cliché, but ‘there’s no such thing as a problem, it’s an opportunity’ still holds true today. And that’s because problems simply exist in our minds. It’s the way we think about certain things or situations. We all have the power to change that – and it starts with positive thinking!
