How to smash your business goals in 2021


If you own a tradie business, last year would likely have played havoc with your plans. Hopefully you’re now back on track, but you might have a bit of ground to cover, so here’s how you can smash your business goals this year!

Work backwards

The best place to start is actually from your end goal, and then work backwards, rather than forwards. That way, you’ll have a better chance of making it happen! Set a date for when you want to achieve your goal, and work backwards to now, planning what you need to have done weekly or monthly to get there.

Schedule it out

Once you’ve worked backwards and broken your goal down into smaller chunks, create a schedule of everything you need to do to reach it. Chipping away at your goal every day will help you get there without making it seem overwhelming or unreachable.

Remember your ‘why’

If there’s a deeper meaning behind your goal, you’ll be more likely to stick to it. So yes, your goal might be to make more of a profit for your business, but that might actually be because you want to support your family so keep that in mind.

Review regularly

You don’t have to be super rigid in your goals. Obviously you don’t want to be slacking off, but if they’re not able to flex and change with the situation, they probably won’t happen. If you review your goals regularly to see how in line they are with your current situation, you can find different ways to reach them!
