Hello financial services professionals,
It is that time again, where advisors and their teams are planning for a new business year. 2022 brings a fresh start and new opportunities. Planning is not a single event carried out at the end of the year. It's a process that requires time and attention year-round to reap the rewards.
Many advisors tell us, “I’ve got it in my head" when we ask about a plan. However, a written plan is critical to achieve focus. Having this focus and a vision for your team to work towards, allows everyone on your team to set meaningful goals to play their part in achieving the vision.
A study on writing your goals down was conducted by the Dominican University of California and our Business Coach, April-Lynn Levitt, outlines this study in her business planning seminars. It resonates with people who haven’t done enough planning and here’s why:
Achievement Level for Goals that are:
Unwritten Goals - 53.5% of the time
Written Goals - 76% of the time
Action Plans - Dropped a slight amount to 63.5% of the time
Written goals, action plans, and commitment to a friend - 80% of the time
Written goals, action plans, commitment and progress reports - 95% chance of success
