Start the Countdown

Fourth quarter is here and that means the end of 2013 is not far off. Just like the clock on the scoreboard at a football game shows how much time is left in the game, so the calendar reflects how many days, weeks and months are left until the end of this calendar year. Whether you’re doing well or lagging behind, this is the time to make the most of every day. The teams don’t give up until the final whistle blows and neither should you.

Here’s how to a great quick check:

  • Evaluate your progress towards each of your annual goals
  • Revaluate your plan to achieve those goals
  • Adjust up or down based on a reality check
  • Most importantly, recommit to finishing strong

Don’t forget to check your current year versus previous year Profit and Loss statement. Revenue and Profit are always good indicators of how your business is doing. Many of our virtual accounting office clients also like to see a rolling 12 month P&L which would now be September 2012 through September 2013.

Whether you’ve already exceeded your annual goals, you’re right on track, or you’re lagging a little or a lot behind, a check at the beginning of fourth quarter is always a good idea.
