We are fast approaching the end of the first decade of the new millenium. Are you where you wanted or expected to be when you made your business resolutions 10 years ago? Did you expect to be doing better, or have you exceeded your expectations. More importantly, as we can only control the future, where do you want to be at the turn of 2020?
With the holiday period fast approaching now is an excellent time for some reflection and planning. With so much happening in the legal world it is easy to blame these “happenings” for where you now find yourself. The start of the changes by Clementi, The Legal Services Act, Tesco Law, Home Information Packs, referral fees and of course this last year the recession. They may have all played a part in where you find your practice now, but if it is not exactly where you want it to be there is ultimately only one person responsible for this: you.
It is the same for my business too, and for every other business trading. Only the business owners can control how successful their business will be. Only the business owners can make a plan to grow their business and then follow through their plan relentlessly and tirelessly until it succeeds (adapting it along the way as needed). We have all read the stories of the ‘overnight successes’, it is only when reading the story that you read that the said ‘overnight success’ took 15 or 20 years to achieve.
Now is a great time to design your next decade so that you start 2020 exactly where you want to be.
