Hit the RESET button!

Wow! It’s hard to believe that the summer months came and went so quickly. For many, who’ve been reviewing their goals and looking at what’s been accomplished over the last 8 months, it may be a time to hit the RESET Button for a few different reasons.

Why? Well, in reviewing the goals you’ve set for this year or quarter etc., you may want to plan ahead for your next quarter or year, tweak some of your targets or even change some of your goals based on the course you’ve charted so far this year.

As an example, I had a client who had set certain goals for a period of 3 months. We reviewed progress on a micro level each week and made small changes to the plan. However, when we sat back and reflected on the really great headway she had made, it was apparent that her original strategy needed some tweaks. She’s realized her target market has changed slightly, her product offering has expanded. She’s also seen how she has developed her brand through her marketing efforts. As a result, for the next 3 months she’s effectively hit the RESET button to approach her business with renewed enthusiasm, a “new” start and modified goals.

No matter what – whether you’ve hit a plateau, achieved your goals or are modifying them – sometimes you just need to take a step back, breathe and hit the reset button to continue or begin moving forward again.
