The success of your business is in your hands. The path to success is a journey you can chart. And you can start right now. Change may be the only certainty in business, but you still need to know where you’re going.
To plan for success, write it down or create a visual image of it. Then make sure you print it out, frame it, or put it somewhere so you won’t lose sight of it. This will ensure you stay focused while you’re busy with the day-to-day of running your business.
Make sure that you are ready for challenges along the way. In the same way you can plan for success, you can also make contingency plans. For example, you’ll need to plan in case of economic downturn, or for lack of inventory if you sell a product. If you know what kinds of obstacles you might encounter on your way to success, you’re more likely to avoid or overcome them.
