2006 - Do You Have a Plan

As we reflect on last year and look to the future, it is hard not to have mixed emotions. Maybe you did not reach some goals, maybe you surpassed them and maybe things happened that you did not have a plan for at all. That is life. In sales having a plan is critical. In our world we talk about a behavioral plan. One that outlines what kind of behavior you plan on doing which will help you to reach your ultimate goals. Breaking down those behaviors on a weekly basis and even daily helps you stay on track. With the plan, there should be very few surprises. And when they come, you are able to make adjustments. So what's the plan? What are you going to do tomorrow? And what does next week look like? Don't wait until June to create and implement at plan. Start today.
