What didn’t work 2015: Goal Setting
This week on the blog we are continuing to talk about goals. More specifically, what didn’t work in 2015. Just as important as looking back at what did work is looking back and honestly assessing what could have gone better. (to see what did work click here) This step is not as much fun but is necessary in order to make changes that will affect your 2016 more effectively.
Here is my list of what didn’t work 2015:
- Booking Goal: While I am happy that I took the initiative to set a goal with regard to how many clients I wanted to work with this year, I did not hit my mark. I DID however get to work with some amazing, people, brides and vendors. I also learned what was working and not working in my marketing strategy and have been able to eliminate things that I was spending money on that were not helping me reach my ideal clients.
- Blog Consistently: I started off the year strong. I had time, I make myself a blog calendar, I gave it priority. Then sometime around June, I became busy, I got off track and lost the momentum and never really got it back together. I did periodically blog here and there but I was not consistent!
- Create an organized work-space in my home: Unfortunately despite best efforts, in our one bedroom apartment there is just not enough space for a dedicated work-space. I have a desk which I keep organized however when it comes time for floral and design projects I still take over every flat surface imaginable. Hopefully in the next year this will change…follow next week for my 2016 goals!
What were some of your goals from 2015 that you did not quite hit? What did you learn from that disappointment? Feel free to share in the comments below. I would love to a cheerleader alongside of you!
