More than 95% of people going into a new year do not have written measurable goals.
Most of us have heard this bit of goal setting “Wisdom” and still don’t have written goals.
So, now is the time to begin looking toward the New Year 2022.
Set an appointment with yourself for 30 – 60 minutes this month. Get blank paper or a blank computer screen and begin writing your thoughts and ideas for accomplishment next year. This first attempt at goal setting doesn’t have to be neat — just take time to think about and write your ideas and thoughts down. Most beginning sessions are quite messy and unorganized. Put this information away in a place you won’t forget where it is, so that you can retrieve it early November.
Set a 2nd appointment with yourself for 30 – 60 minutes early November and get your list out. You will be amazed at the progress you will have already made toward thinking about and planning your goals for next year. Begin subtracting, adding and modifying your original list.
Set a 3rd appointment with yourself near the end of December. Many people like doing this during the holiday season when they are not working and can take time to really think about goals. Make your list as neat and useable as you like, put it in a place to retrieve it often. Do not be afraid to change or add goals, this is a work in progress, it may never be complete.
Why do this?
Because if you use this method every year and set a tracking system and measure progress, you will see goals completed.
Try for yourself and get into the 5% group of people who write and strive to achieve their goals.
Five months to go in 2021. Will you finish the year on goal?
Are your sales on plan? Will you meet or exceed goals or plans for 2021?
Reassess the remainder of the year.
Do you have a process and training to keep your sales or goals on Track? A consistent daily system and process produce results.
I have been working with companies wanting to increase sales, but they do not have a system or process to increase sales. Many companies add salespeople and hope for more sales.
I have worked with products that have taken several thousands of contacts to get responses. In other cases, companies had a better, more precise market of potential customers, and responses could be made with a lot less effort.
It still takes multiple contacts and nurturing to get buyers and consumers to feel comfortable buying.
Do you know your numbers? Do you know who your potential buyers are? Do you know how they think and consider buying?
How do you go about selling more of your products?
