Ok procurement pros the New Year is in full swing now.

January 6th, 2012

What are the odds that you will accomplish your procurement resolutions or goals?

The good news is that there is still time to save those resolutions that right now are probably destined to fail. So, what are the four most important things you can do in order to keep your procurement focused New Years resolutions or goals?

Well it is really pretty simple. The fact is and these numbers move around a bit but are generally within a few basis points regardless of the source. Here you go, 92% of all resolutions will not be kept at all and 45% will have already failed by the end of January.

However there is something you can do in the next five minutes in order to not become a part of these statistics.

I know you’ve heard some of this before, but it is etched in stone for this author. The first step is to write those resolutions down. Writing something down is a psycho, nuero, muscular activity that has an imprint effect on your brain. Typing something does not accomplish the same thing. So, if you have not written them down, do so now. The second step is to make your resolutions public, declare them publicly, and post them. This simple step creates ownership. The third step is to set a date for completion. A resolution or a goal without a completion date is just a dream. Finally take action and start making decisions that move you in the direction of your completions dates.

Here is a simple summary

1. Write them down
2. Make them public
3. Establish a completion date
4. Take action and make a decision.

Here’s wishing you the best one week into your NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS!

We look forward to and appreciate your comments.
