It’s a new year, a fresh start. Amidst the resolutions and planning, it’s an ideal time to assess by asking a few basic ‘why’ and ‘how’ questions.

Why were you able to accomplish what you did last year? What worked, and what didn’t?

How can you be smarter? Smarter about process, about planning, about possible effects, about metrics, about leadership, about inspiring your people to invest in building the business?

How will your business make a difference for your customers in the new year? How will you help them achieve their goals and prosper so you succeed? What new idea can you propose to strengthen you both?

Why do your people devote their talents and energy to your business? How do you ensure that they understand your expectations? How might they be encouraged to improve your business? How do you recognize those who contribute to your company’s success?

May your 2018 bring prosperity and fulfillment!
