How to review your business goals and find your focus

Posted on 6 June, 2022 by Lyndsey Segal in Business Coaching

The halfway point of 2022 is a good opportunity to reflect – to review your business goals and their outcomes and (re)set your next quarter or 6-month business goals.

Acknowledging achievements and learning from challenges are essential in helping you understand what you want to achieve next, find your focus and determine your next steps. These insights will help you set your next business goals and better plan for your business.

Here are some questions to help:

  • What have been my biggest achievements?
  • What challenges did I experience? How did I overcome them? What did I learn from them?
  • What are the best things I have learnt from 2022 so far?
  • What am I most proud of?
  • Which goals do I want to set for next year?
  • What steps do I need to take to achieve my goals? 
  • How will I measure or track my progress? 

And here are some questions to help you take action: 

  • What ideas do you want to bring to life? 
  • What goals would you like to set? 
  • What new habits and ways of working will you take forward? 
  • How do you want to feel in the second half of the year? 

Knowing the goals we want to achieve is the starting point but knowing the route to achieve them can sometimes be unclear. 

This can easily lead to overwhelm, procrastination and unaccomplished goals. You need an action plan!

What is an action plan and how will it benefit my business?

An action plan is a sequence of steps or actions to be completed and when they should be completed by in order to achieve your goals.

An action plan will help you to:

  • See everything you’re working on in one place
  • Prioritise your tasks
  • Track your progress toward your goals
  • Reach milestones and deadlines
  • Hold yourself accountable for getting things done

Review your progress

Regularly reviewing your goals will help you assess your progress and setbacks, update your task list and make a plan for how to move forwards. 

Here are 3 questions to help:

  1. What progress have I made on my top priorities?
  2. What needs to be updated
  3. What needs to happen next?

How I helped Bewilder Box review their business goals and find their focus

Context: The Directors at Bewilder Box started 2022 with a strong desire to find their focus but had little idea of where to begin. 
I worked with the team in January to plan, prioritise and set goals for the first quarter of 2022. 
This helped them gain clarity, focus and direction for their business. They felt like a fog had been lifted and were primed for a successful, meaningful year.
Challenge: However, some unexpected staff changes meant they had to quickly restructure staff and prioritise their time and workload. 
Outcomes: In May, I helped the team set new goals and create a more streamlined monthly focus for the next quarter.
I am now working monthly with the Directors at Bewilder Box to help them implement their goals, be accountable and use their goals to guide and grow their business.
