February 2017

Jan 31st
When was the last time you followed through with a New Year’s resolution?
Maybe you’ve done better than most of us and you managed to in 2016. But if not, what could you have done better to have succeeded?
The festive period around New Year normally means more time off. Without work occupying your everyday like usual, you get a bit more time to reflect.
You can take stock of your life. Work out where you are and where you want to be. You might say to yourself:
 “In the New Year, I’ll make a fresh start. I’ll work hard to achieve all my goals. I’ll lose weight, drink less coffee, exercise more, make more money, stop smoking, etc, etc.”
That’s excellent, right? Everyone wants to better themselves and do better. But why do so few people seem to make good of their New Year promises to themselves?
We had a think and came up with some things that could be obstacles on your journey to personal betterment.
Trying to get there too quickly
Technically, you’ve got the whole year. But if you don’t work out realistic timeframes, you’ll probably end up disappointed when you’re not a stone lighter come 15th January.
It’s easy to get excited about your goals. So that makes it equally easy to be impatient with them. With impatience comes disappointment when things don’t happen as quickly as you want. So you may start to think they’ll never happen and abandon the idea altogether.
To avoid this happening, you need to assess your goals properly. Research, ask for advice and work out how long they’ll take you realistically. If you want to lose 3 stone in 2017, better to spread that weight loss out across the year than take your body to the edge trying to do it in a month.
If you break your goal down into miniature targets, not only do you become more likely to succeed, but you have reason to celebrate when you reach each one. If breaking your goal down makes it easier and lets you celebrate, why wouldn’t you do it?
Your goal isn’t specific enough
A goal without specifics can be intimidating and nebulous. Whether it’s losing weight, saving money or giving up cigarettes, they can all be looked at more precisely with numbers.  
Losing weight is vague and your progress could seem painfully slow if you don’t have any goal numbers to measure your progress against.
Say instead you set yourself the goal of losing 2 stone by next January. You may lose 4 lbs in the first month.That may feel underwhelming if you have no specific goal, but if that’s 4 of 28 lbs you have 11 months left to lose, it’s a lot more encouraging.
Similarly, if you plan to save £1000 over a year, it becomes a lot more manageable and realistic if you try and set aside £100 per month. With cigarettes, cutting down gradually each month is majorly less difficult than going cold turkey.
Your New Year’s resolution is much easier to achieve if you know exactly where you’re going. Even if you don’t quite get there, there’s nothing to stop you progressing the next year if you know where you want to be.
You don’t make time
It’s an unfortunate reality that things take time. And even more unfortunate that we have only a limited supply of it.
Like the last reason, this relates to specificity too. Particularly, you being specific about how you’re going to use your time.
The idea of losing weight, improving your business or exercising more is great, but it’s a lot easier thought than done. None of these things will happen without you taking time out of your day to do them.
You might look at people you admire, whether it’s for their physique or success in business, and wonder how they got to where they are. Where do they find the time?
But they don’t find it, they make it. If you want to improve your life, you need to prioritise your time more effectively. An hour here or there you normally spend doing something that’s not essential (watching TV, seemingly endless scrolling through social media) could quite easily be repurposed to help you reach your goals.
Sometimes, though, it still feels like you don’t have enough time. Like people that have achieved what you want to achieve somehow have more hours in their day. Or maybe have a little help...
You try and do too much on your own
Who said having a little bit of help was against the rules? Don’t look at us.
You can get an immense sense of pride doing everything yourself.
But realistically, do you have the time? Or the expertise? You could take it upon yourself to research nutrition and exercise so you know the most efficient way to get in shape. But personal trainers and nutritionists exist for a reason.
Success stories may make it sound like people do it all themselves, but they don’t. If you want to improve your business, you need help. If you try to build your website, do all the marketing, make all the sales and everything else you’ll quickly be overwhelmed. Not only that, but you’ll have no time and you either won’t grow or will fail entirely.
Entrepreneurs like Bill Gates or Richard Branson may seem like self-made men, but really there’s no such thing. Both of them had help along the way. Otherwise, they would have been overwhelmed and failed. Now, they couldn’t be further away from doing everything themselves.
In fact, because they were smart enough to get help, they’re now in positions where they have to do very little in their businesses. So they have more time.
So whether it’s hiring a personal trainer so you know the best way to exercise, or outsourcing your marketing or sales, getting help can really help you make good of your resolutions.
Want a bit of help keeping your resolution?
We’re more than happy to give you a hand. Unfortunately, if you’re looking to lose weight, stop smoking, exercise more, learn how to juggle or be the first person on Mars, we can’t do more than offer words of encouragement.
But, if you want 2017 to be a better year for your business, we’re all over that. Whether you’re interested in a new website or increasing your sales through marketing, we’d love to hear from you.
Get in touch and we’ll have a chat about what we could do for you.

Diet & Weightloss the most competitive niche

Nov 29th 2016

When trying to rank for keywords in the weightloss industry you've got to be ready for plenty of work as this is a super competitive niche. Interestingly though it is a lot less competitive onces you start to look in local search. It appears most of the competition is direct rather than encouraging you to visit a physical location. We've started work on Silverlink Clinics starting with their weightloss blog and we'll report back on our progress.
