As you plan your strategies for growth this year, there are three things you should do to increase your opportunity for success in your 401k practice.

One: Set Goals

The first one is to set goals. Only 3% of adults have clear, written, specific, measurable, time-bounded goals, and by every statistic, they accomplish ten times as much as people with no goals at all.

As you begin your goal-planning activity, answer these questions:

  • What was your biggest accomplishment during 2014? (“Study the past if you would define the future.” ~ Confucius)
  • Looking back over the past year, what would have done differently? (“More people would learn from their mistakes if they weren’t so busy denying them.” ~ Zig Ziglar)
  • What is our #1 business goal for 2015…If you could accomplish only one thing this year, what would it be? (“You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.” ~ Jim Rohn)
  • Why is this goal important to you and what do you think is needed to accomplish this goal? (“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”)
