3 Things You Can Do Before 2023

By Victoria. Published on Monday December 5, 2022

2022 is about to end. Do you want to finish strong as you get ready for another year to build a better consultancy business? As cliche as it seems, if you are a person who makes decisions on a yearly basis then this is for you. If you consider making yearly consultancy goals or improvements in your business, here are four things you can do before the year ends. This could also apply to your life goals and not necessarily your consultancy or business goals.

Be Accountable

It’s important to take accountability seriously. You can’t set out to have a to-do list that is longer than your day. You won’t be able to achieve most of what you set out to do. In the end, you will overwhelm yourself. You can have an accountability partner to help you if need be. Someone who can see your list of goals and even your calendar. If this is getting too much into your personal space, it could be someone you trust to share your day-to-day goals and tasks. Someone who will candidly and in a good way ask why you haven’t achieved certain tasks – be it a meeting with a client, an email you were to send to a prospective client, a deadline you have to meet and even the consultancy job you haven’t applied for yet. As the year ends, so many tasks might be overtaken by events and having someone to hold you to account will be beneficial. You will manage your days and time better.

Work on Small Goals

Choose a small goal you want to accomplish every day. Get 1% better each day. When you start a week choosing to do that small goal every day, by the end of the week you are 7% better than you were at the beginning of the week. It has to be a small goal that you can do within 30-45 minutes or less. Whether it’s working on a client’s tasks in bits weeks before the deadline or responding to emails every day without fail, you are better off where you are before not doing it. It’s the little habits of self-improvement that make a difference. Deadlines will be met and tasks will be accomplished. No need of doing everything at the last minute.

Review Your Goals

This is a great way to get ready for 2023. You don’t need to wait for 2023 to plan the year. Look at your current goals and what you have achieved in 2022 and set out what you think 2023 will look like for your consultancy business. Whether it’s working with the same clients or getting new ones. Setting out to attend more networking events or learn/perfect a new skill. It’s about starting now and starting early.
