Everyone makes resolutions they want to stick to in the new year. Frankly, these resolutions can be hard to keep as we often forget about them sooner or later. But if we try, we will feel great once we accomplish them. So, it is good to reflect and make goals to improve and create new wins in the new year. Here are 5 resolutions to set your farm business up for success in 2022.
1. Be Intentional About Your Goals
To be intentional means getting a clear picture of what you want to achieve and taking deliberate action towards them daily. Set reasonable expectations for yourself and develop a plan on how and when to get there. Let your goals be specific and realistic by considering the time and resources you have to accomplish them. For instance, stating you want to increase egg production on your farm by 5 per cent in the next six months and 10 per cent by the end of the year is more effective than just saying you want to increase production. Also, prioritize your farm activities according to their importance and track your progress to tell you if your efforts are working.
2. Stay Updated
In 2022, put yourself at the centre of your plan for success by identifying areas where you want or need more information. If there’s something on your farm you would like to learn more about, figure out what you need to do next. You can avail yourself of ebooks, attend webinars, and gain insights from reputable sources to learn more about farming and get better at what you do. Doing this, will not only increase your confidence that you can succeed as a farmer, but it will also make your farm business more profitable and efficient.
3. Better Manage Costs
Be strategic in purchasing your seeds, vaccines, equipment and other farm inputs that ultimately determine your farm yield and productivity. While you look out for choosing the cheapest option, ensure that the quality of the product still meets your farm needs.
Also, it is time to start saving more money. Cut back on expenses so that your goal is realistic and profits invested safely. Also, take advantage of exclusive discount offers, deals, and promos to save big this year.
