The new year is nearly here and people all over the nation are resolving to lose weight, eat healthier and hit the gym every day of the week. But not you. You are resolving to achieve business goals and personal goals that will make you a better entrepreneur.

Statistics have shown that writing down your goals is critical if you really want to achieve results. Written resolutions encourage you to take a harder look at your current state and focus more on setting goals. Resolutions that are written down force you to think outside the box and drive yourself forward.

There are several resolutions you can make that will improve your career. The first resolution should be to hire Terence Winslow in Los Angeles as a career coach. Here are a few other resolutions you should consider.

Be Authentic

People are attracted to others who are unabashedly themselves and walk the walk when it comes to their values. This should be a goal in your business setting as well as in your personal life.

Become a Strong Leader

Your success as an entrepreneur rests upon how good of a leader you are. If you are in a leadership role, there are always ways in which you can improve your skill set. Don’t wait to hone these skills, start next week by resolving to be a better leader.

Say “No” More Often

It just doesn’t make any sense to say “yes” to something that doesn’t serve you or contribute to your balance rhythm. If your better judgment or gut feeling tells you to say “no” to a project. it will serve you well to go with your instinct. There is nothing wrong with saying “no” and you never need to justify your actions.

Take a Small Risk

Smart risk-taking can have a profound impact on your career. Fear of failure paralyzed a lot of people and can keep them from showing their true potential. When you take risks, there will be mistakes to be sure, but you will learn from them and be a better person because of what you have learned.

Learn Something New

It’s going to be a new year, so resolve to learn something new. You could choose to learn a skill associated or related to what you do for a living or learn something new that will add a dimension to your home life. Remember, work-life balance is important and you need to have plenty of interests in your life outside of work.

Learning something new will put you outside of your comfort zone and help you to meet new people.

Learn How to Delegate

There are so many things that need to be done and so little time to have them done. If you are overwhelmed by the amount of work that you want to do, have somebody help. There are only so many hours ion a day and you can’t complete everything yourself.

Delegating doesn’t mean a loss of control, it just means certain other people take on certain tasks.
