Signs of the Times - January 2018 - 33

to add this year and how will it
increase our productivity? For us,
2018 marks our 35th year in business,
so how do our retirement plans look?
We view this process as a minibusiness plan for us. A plan we get
to review every 12 months to gauge
how far we've come and where we
want to go next. Ultimately, as a
business owner, you are responsible
for directing the course of your company. So this month - if you haven't
done so already - take the time to
slow down, spend one afternoon with
whoever you'll meet with (your partners, top employees, spouse or parent)
and revel in all you accomplished in
2017! Then, lay out your perfect plan
for 2018. In the words of Yogi Berra,
"If you don't know where you're going,
you might wind up somewhere else."
After your reflection and planning
session, you may want to share the
results with your employees. Maybe
not all the financial aspects, but our
crew really enjoys hearing about how
much better we plan on making the
company. Everybody wants to be part
of a winning team, and they'll appreciate your commitment to that goal.
And by no means are my questions
shown here a full, comprehensive
guideline to be used for every business.
But they give you an outline to get
started. Add whatever questions
that will help you map out 2018 as
your best year yet!
I also like having this meeting
outside of the office. Way too many
distractions here and it's always better
to get a fresh vibe elsewhere. (I think
we'll do it at Bahama Breeze this year.
Rum Runners tend to assist our future
planning efforts, for some reason...)
Remember, my sign industry people,
the days are long, but the years are
short. Better make them count!
