While a new year doesn’t have to be a time for starting over for everyone, or this epic page you turn, it is still a good stopping point/milestone/deadline when it comes to goals.
After all, it’s very beneficial to analyze how your strategies went over the course of a full year. With that in mind, we came up with three processes mobile kitchen owners should be starting right now. You know, since 2018 is right around the corner.
3 Processes Mobile Kitchen Owners Should Be Starting Right Now
Reflecting On The Year
Reflection is a very important step that so many people are lacking. Sure, reflection galore tends to take over during the last couple of weeks of the year, but at that point … it might be too late.
Yes, some reflection is better than no reflection, and reflecting at the end of the year (in other words, figuring out what you have done right and wrong, among other things) could lead to better strategies in the new year, but constant reflection will lead to you staying on track with everything. It will also lead to you being able to identify when something isn’t working, such as a social media strategy, a sale at your food truck or whatever it might be.
While you want to give every strategy some time to succeed (or fail), you simply don’t want to go through things on autopilot, which is why you should be analyzing your situation on a consistent basis. That’s where reflecting comes into play, and if you haven’t been going through that process, mobile kitchen owners, then now is the time to do so.

Creating New Goals
So many people look at their current goals during this time of year and realize they aren’t going to be achieved … so they move on to next year’s goals. First off, we will worry about this year’s goals in the next process, if you will. Secondly, it is never too early to start making new goals, especially if you plan on hitting the ground running on Jan. 1.
With these goals, just make sure you attach a deadline, make them measurable and come up with some form of schedule for them.
You want to make goals you are passionate about, so we will say this: (1) You don’t want to make your goals feel like a chore, so stick to the process that is going to work for you, the process that has always worked for you. (2) Don’t just create a goal to create one. Create a goal you are going to be passionate about, and one that is actually going to benefit you and your business in some way. This goal should further your growth and your food truck business’ growth.

Doing Anything In Your Power To Hit Your Current Goals
Now, let’s take an important step back. Before you completely give up on your 2017 goals, make one final push to make them happen. Even if you don’t achieve them, as long as you did your best, then you won.
So, open up earlier and stay open later in hopes of serving more customers, do another catering gig or two, try to sell some product at your food truck, enter an event that could lead to massive exposure and just do things that you see fit for your food truck business, things that will help you reach your current goals.
The clock might be winding down, but there is still some time left.
You don’t reach your goals and succeed by giving up, you reach your goals and succeed by doing your best and trying your hardest.
Put in the extra work now to make your goals — even if it’s just one of them — come true.
