So what does success mean to you and how do you measure it? Is it monetary, personal, business?
Recently I took a new position and thought I was doing well and at the end of the year analyzed the company numbers and realized that even though sales was up that profit was down since I was the leader. I was able to increase sales but not get a handle on expenses. So if I was hired to add sales then I should get a bonus, but if I was hired to run the company and make it profitable then I should be fired.
So what about you? Were you successful in 2013? Do you have a plan for 2014? How will you even know if you are successful without a plan and a way to measure success? So as I tell my students and employees-write it down, make a goal, and shoot for it otherwise you will never know when you get there.
Me? I guess I will look for a new job for 2014-maybe somewhere with no snow.
