Being as this is New Year’s Eve it only makes sense that we would be talking about resolutions and ways to improve your business for the coming year. So far this week we have covered ideas for saving the planet with the help of our environmentally friendly PodForum series and just how our display rental program could literally make it so you are in two places at once. Today we are going to talk about putting things off to the last minute. It’s something we all do and for many no matter how hard they try nothing cannot be put off till later so that something more fun or more desirable can be done immediately. According to one group of researchers looking into ways to more effectively manage time “In 1978, 5% of the population admitted to being chronic procrastinators compared to to roughly 26% of the population today (Steele, 2007).Surveys of student populations suggest that procrastination is pervasive with some surveys suggesting that 85-95% of students have problems associated with procrastination”
When running a business there always seems to be things that are considered more desirable and tasks that are uncomfortable to do. Nobody wants to sit around worrying about taxes or working on dropping sales reports all day when they can be out making contacts and marketing their company to the public. Still though in order to be a success it’s important to be aware of coming trends and what consumers will expect from you in the weeks or months ahead. A prime example of this can be found in Godfrey’s extensive design library. Winter is hitting the U.S hard with blizzards causing over 10,000 flight delays across the country. As individuals we can’t help but pay attention to the cold weather headlines taking over out nightly news reports, but as business owners we need to be planning for brighter days as Spring begins to creep closer and closer. This means that the time to begin designing that custom inflatable outdoor display isn’t three months from now when the temps begin to edge into the early 80′s, today is the day to begin making those plans so that when Spring has finally sprung to life you are ahead of the curve with your new trade custom built tent city already sitting within arm’s reach.
This year don’t wait to the last minute to find a display that’s a perfect fit for your needs, resolve to start looking toward the future today!!
