Planning for a New Year

 

I've learned over the years that the best way to plan is to set big goals. Setting big goals does a few things. It allows you the ability to reach those goals in a way that suits you along with giving you the ability to define objectives and progress targets more effectively. 

 

The car biz is crazy at times. Who am I kidding. It's crazy all the time. Things seem to move so fast around us but a lot of times it's just things moving in place giving the illusion that real change is happening. When in actuality you're just shuffling papers around. 

 

It's ok to set goals with no idea of how you're going to reach them. I would argue that's the point of goal setting. Not having a clear path is the exciting part about making impactful change happen. 

 

So as we come into 2017 here are the 4 goals I've set for myself. I don't have a clear path of how I'm going to do any one of these things. But by setting big goals like this I can ensure that everything I do is going to be something that moves me closer to reaching them. 

 

  • Become #1 and #2 Chevy stores in Las Vegas area. 

 

  • Increase customer visibility and satisfaction by measurable means.

 

  • Remove internal barriers between sales/BDC 

 

  • Create New media shows. Podcasts, video etc. 

 

What are some of your big plans for the new year? Post them in  the comments below.
