Planning Ahead – Small Business Tips & Advice: Deadlines vs. Goals

Deadlines vs. Project Goals, hmmmm.

April 15th is a perfect illustration of the difference between deadlines and projects. A deadline is a cutoff, usually associated with a final opportunity to complete a goal or project in its entirety. On the other hand, a project is made up of smaller goals & tasks that lead to a final result.

Getting your taxes in order, for your business or household, can be achieved in one of two ways:

#1. You can recognize that it all needs to be done by the deadline and simplify it in your mind as a single task, only to discover on the 10th that it’s going to take a miracle to get it done on time.


#2. You can break up the pieces of the intended end result to create smaller goals and tasks and then monitor your progress over a longer period of time.

A prerequisite to being able to delegate any part of your business to another resource is the ability to define specific goals and to outline the tasks and procedures involved in achieving those goals. RemSource will work with you to craft, refine, and implement these processes so that you can start managing your workload instead of being managed by it.

With the structure needed to be able to delegate tasks, and the resources to get them done, you may soon discover what it’s like to be that person who has their refund back by the end of January. Everybody knows one, it’s time we stopped pretending we are not jealous!
