31/10/2013: It's Thrilling Thursday - Whip up a storm in your business

Thursday draws its name from the old English for thunder, a translation of a Latin name for Jupiter's Day. Juptier was god of thunder and is the biggest planet in our solar system, being one of the brightest objects in our night sky. Set big goals on Thursday and go large.

When asked what their busienss goals are, many will come up with answers like "Increase my profit", "Make more sales", "Get more customer referrals" or "Retire early". All very worthy goals but not the kind that can be measured. If you can't measure something, you will never know when you have achieved it.

Today is a great day for defining how much more profit, how many more sales, how many more customer referrals and how early you want to retire. Then the period must be defined. How many per month, per year, in five years time?

The targets when viewed overall can be frightening. "I want to double my profit in a year" is a very bold statement, which can seem unattainable. This is the time to 'chunk' the task. From a year, break down increases to monthly, weekly or even daily steps that can be easily measured and 'ticked off' as you go along. Even a journey of a thousand miles must start with the first step.

Go on, amaze yourself with what you can achieve. Set big goals then make them achievable by chunking them into bite-sized pieces.

Marketing, promotion and sales activities all contribute to any business goal, and over the years, hundreds of Village Websmith customers have had help with these aspects to help achieve ambitious targets.
