Confession time. I'm a grammar nerd.
My favorite subject in school was English. Not just literature, but grammar.
The day I learned to diagram a sentence was a total game changer, and I probably judge you for incorrectly using "your" when you really meant "you're."
But when I started learning to write for business, I had to put my grammar elitism behind.
Sure, I still aim for perfection in spelling and grammar (notice I aim, but I also make mistakes. oopsie), but I've learned a few tricks for writing in business that do not exist in writing for academia.
We're finally here. The fourth and final installment of your annual plan, just in time for January to come to a close.
To recap, so far we have identified what went well and what needs improvement in 2017. Then, we learned about SMART goals and created some for 2018, then took those goals and broke them down into small pieces, ready to tackle each day and week.
This is the week where we put it all together and populate our roadmap for the year.

Part 3 of annual planning. Are we having fun yet?
To recap, so far we have identified what went well and what needs improvement in 2017. Then, we learned about SMART goals and created some for 2018.
This week, we're going to break down those goals from annual, quarterly, or monthly goals into weekly and daily goals, because not only does it feel more attainable that way, but it also puts these agenda items on your daily to-do list so that checking them off is a no-brainer. Basically, we're figuring out how to eat the elephant one bite at a time.
Last week we discussed our 2017. Did you spend some time with your Balance Sheet Comparison? Were you pleased with the results?
Last week we also answered these questions. If you’re just joining us, feel free to answer them now.
- What went well last year?
- What can be improved this year?
Now that review’s over, it’s time to set some SMART goals.
I’m not shouting. That’s an acronym.
Instead of pricing based on our perceived value, or worse, our competitor's prices, why not price our products based on facts and figures?
