Are You A Passive Reactor Or An Purposeful Achiever?

Start by thinking about what you want to achieve ...

 
 



Most businesses react to changes or circumstances as they crop up, but the problem for many business owners is that react is all they do. They haven't thought about what they want ...

If you're just reacting to problems as they occur, then you're not achieving anything purposely!

When you think about this, it is a bit sad really. If you simply react to events as they happen then you are living and working by accident; what you should be doing is being purposeful! Thinking and planning for what you want and then achieving those successes by making things happen.

"We know that we are capable of making things happen and achieve results!"

Think about some of the big stuff in your life, like the last time you moved house. Did you plan what sort of house you wanted and then go hunting and look for it and then make the move happen, or did you simply react to events?

So, take a moment and think about your business. What was the last thing you decided? Did you actively consider whether it would advance your business plan or did you just react to circumstances?

For example, the last time you had a horrible customer, did you let it happen and just react as events unfolded? Or did you think about whether or not you should deal with that customer and what resources your business would need to do that with before you started dealing with them?

If you want to be a purposeful achiever, then start by thinking about what you want to achieve. Then you plan for the things that are going to happen, including what things you think about as part of making decisions as you go through your business life.

Take the first step by setting
proper goals!"

More about Jonathan Vowles ...

I've been an accountant in and for business since 1987 and have a wide experience of consultancy, audit, accounts, taxation and wealth planning work from individuals and small businesses to multinational corporations and charities.

My eclectic interests in growing and developing business span a number of areas … and can be summarised as strategic business advice and tax saving advice.

I have worked with the Chamber of Commerce to deliver courses for people about starting up in business and have lectured about tax for a major accountancy practice and for Milton Keynes College.

I relax by reading fiction and by getting away from the office in a campervan.
