It is a common fact that most entrepreneurs ask the question- ‘Now what?’ after getting funds for their business. Of course, the answer is that now you have to deliver – and for that to happen you have to get things moving. This is where the art of accomplishing the task on hand comes in.
Create something worth accomplishing
The sales, the sales pitch, the demonstrations, are all the more easier if you have a great product or service. If you have created something that is meaningful and useful, you could start the process of putting your business plan into action right away. If your product or service is not up to the mark, you can be sure that it is not going to be a success. You will have to create a product or service that is likable and acceptable. If you are creating a market winner, the process of achieving success becomes easy. If you find that getting the project done is an uphill task, then perhaps you are working on the wrong thing.
Set the right goals
Now you have to go about setting goals which have to embody certain qualities. First and foremost, they have to be measurable. It is true of the adage which says that what can be measured can be done. This also affects the number of goals because you can’t measure everything but three to five goals, measured on a weekly basis, should be sufficient. A goal should be measurable, achievable and relevant. Ensure that your goal encompasses all the factors that will not only make your organization stable but well-known.
Make every single person responsible for success
Accountability is very important in any organisation, and if you find that element missing, train and inculcate the idea amongst the employees. In any organisation you will observe that excellent employees seek responsibility, good employees accept responsibility, while bad employees shirk responsibility.
Follow up an issue until it is done
Many organizations set goals and even measure progress towards them, but many of the people lose focus on the way. You will discover that some goals are no longer relevant because people lose focus on the target and start focusing on other things.
Give the high achiever a reward
Commendations and rewards always have an extraordinary effect on the people. Commending those who achieve their given targets has a remarkable effect. Firstly, it motivates and encourages them to do the job with even more zeal and enthusiasm. Secondly, this will have a extremely salutary effect on under-achievers and non-achievers as they would realise that the company takes execution of the job very seriously. You can decide on the reward – it could be money, stock options, time off, or a vacation – whatever works, to let everyone know that this person is an achiever and has delivered results.
Establish a culture of achievements
Success is not an event – it is an accomplishment of your vision – and having achieved your goals. It should be the company’s way of life. The best way to establish this culture is for the head of the company – the CEO, to set an example of meeting goals, and also responding to customers and meeting their needs.
Have efficient supervision
Essentially every business needs strict experienced supervision which is necessary for the perfect execution of a job. So it is essential to find an experienced and highly practical supervisor who enables employees to see things as they really are and firmly enforces discipline to ensure that they achieve their goals. And, discipline is the sure and definite road to success.
If your product or service is not up to the mark, you can be sure that it is not going to be a success. You will have to create a product or service that is likable and acceptable. If you are creating a market winner, the whole process of achieving success becomes easy. If you find that getting the project done is an uphill task, then perhaps you are working on the wrong thing.
