New Years’ Resolutions and Business

It has become very popular to make New Year’s Resolutions every year.  Whether or not we managed to keep our commitments and to reach the goals that we’ve set, most of us are still very open to make new resolutions for the upcoming year with the hope that we will be able to stay focused and accomplish them.

Some of the most common New Year’s resolutions that people make can be visualized below with the help of Mindomo mind mapping software:

Our actions are very much related to the type of decisions that we make and the resolutions that we choose to define as guidelines for our choices.  Depending on the areas we focus on, our resolutions may be structured according to our personal, family or business interests and focus.  Since our lives are often defined by the choices we make, we have to be ready to live with the consequences of our choices, be they positive or negative.  Each day represents another chance for us to practice our decision-making skills and to define or redefine our resolutions.  Nevertheless, the end of one year and the beginning of another is a great opportunity for us to evaluate at a larger scale and from a yearly perspective our commitment level regarding the resolutions we’ve made and the areas which need improvement to keep a better focus.

Just as people have their own personality, mindset and decision-making styles, companies and organizations also have their uniqueness when it comes to making decisions and identifying New Year’s Resolutions.  In most cases though, yearly priorities can be made clear especially when most companies or business leaders involved in a specific economic sector have similar interests and pursuits.

In a recent global survey conducted by SLI Systems the findings showed that approximately 500 retailers who participated in the survey defined their priorities and New Year’s Resolutions for 2013 to be focused on the enhancement of website search, SEO strategies and mobile commerce.

What are the actions or strategies undertaken by your company?

Here are some suggestions you may want to consider in order to sketch out New Year’s Resolutions for your team, projects or organization:
