Understanding you don’t know what you don’t know is critical for a business owner. Most of us rush into business without knowing all there is to know about running a business. But December is a reflective month. This is the time when we plan for next year. Think about the things you learned and what you still need to know as you set your small business goals for 2023. You must evaluate how this year has been before you prepare for next year.
January is an action month. This is when we start to act out all the goals of a small business we made in December. You have to prepare for this month by making actionable plans in December.
Truth is valuable
Remember that the truth is valuable. But also remember how you say your truth is essential. Your delivery is a crucial part of the statement. It can affect how what you say is received.
You don’t know what you don’t know
Learn to have an open mind. Be open to learning from other people. Remember that you don’t know what you don’t know. Accept that you don’t know everything and welcome new information from others.
Remember the younger generation.
We need to focus on the younger generation because they are the future. Do what you can to help those who are coming after you. The goals of a small business should always consider the younger generation.
Find your genius
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein.
So often, we keep trying to do something that isn’t for us. When we struggle with these things like this, we usually feel lacking, but the truth is that this just isn’t your genius. You need to find your genius and grow in it.
You can do this by asking yourself an important question. Ask yourself what you want to do more of and what you want to do less of as you move forward. You need to become crystal clear about your passion and your why. Find something to do that will help you work in your IQG – Your Innate Quality and Genius.
Goals of a small business
Make growing your team one of your small business goals next year. If you can’t delegate and disappear, your business still has a while to go. You need a team that you can delegate to. Remember, you don’t know what you don’t know, so find a team who can fill the gaps.
Things to Remember as you plan for 2023
We are all multitalented. We can make a massive difference in the lives of other people. Be a servant leader. If anything can stop you, let it. You grow, or you die.
