What are your specific goals for the year? Identify them in a concise and direct way. This will entail exactly when and how you want to achieve them. For example, if your aim is to increase sales have a set number you want to reach at a specific time/period.

Plan to succeed -

Once you have your objectives clearly defined strategize your execution plan. This will determine your quarterly, monthly, weekly and daily objectives.

Execute your plan -

In order to keep you and your employee's motivated to keep track of daily progress and give rewards / proper acknowledgment for each task that has been completed. This increases morale in the workplace and motivates everyone to work even harder to achieve the overall objectives for the year.
