Tomorrow is the most important day of your work year.
Tomorrow is September 4, 2012. It is the day after Labor Day. Did you enjoy the beer and burgers? Have one last marathon lounging in the pool or enjoying the outdoors? Hope so. Because now it’s time to accept the cold, hard truth…
It’s crunch time.
Though it hardly seems possible, the summer is already gone. Football games are on television. The Olympics are over. Before you know it, November will be here, and with it the holidays.
That’s right. In less than 12 weeks it will be Thanksgiving. For many businesses that means an inevitable slow-down as you enter that cheery but largely unproductive holiday period. And there’s not much you’re going to be able to do about it.
Are you behind on your annual goals? Do you have a project that isn’t due until the end of the year? Have you procrastinated finishing a project until it really needed to be done?
Well then, tomorrow is that day. It’s September 4, and whether you know it or not you are rapidly running out of 2012. Tomorrow is the day to review your annual goals with your team or with yourself if you don’t have a team. Tomorrow is the day to make hard decisions about what you have to do in the next 12 weeks to make your budget or hit your goals.
So what are you reading blogs for? Better get going.
