      Business planning don'ts


      Don't just keep your plan in your head

      • Putting your plan on paper helps you
        • hold your business accountable
        • define your strategies and prioritize major initiatives
        • identify metrics for success

      Don't make your plan too cumbersome

      • It is good to have details, but avoid making it overwhelming

      Don't be short sited

      • Know how your short-term initiatives fit into the larger long-term plan

      Don't let your plan gather dust

      • Dedicate reoccurring time to review your goals

      Don't set your plan in stone

      • If new opportunities arise, don't be afraid to reevaluate your priorities
