Lots of people make New Year’s resolutions. Many resolutions are very noble, and sound good during the reverie of a New Year’s Eve celebration but are soon abandoned in despair because the resolution seems unachievable. Alas, another broken resolution.
In the business world, New Year’s resolutions are defined as “Annual Objectives.” As it turns out, abandoning annual objective is not usually permitted. We should choose our Annual Objectives wisely.
