An old military maxim is that “no plan survives contact with the enemy”. However, it is also true that “if you fail to plan you are planning to fail”.
Planning is one of the most fundamental aspects of running a business and, as we start the year, there can be no better time to spend a few hours planning.
Start by looking back at 2018; did you make any plans for the year? If things have not gone as you hoped, are there any specific reasons and what could you have done about them?
