Every year I make a pledge to myself on how much money I’ll bring in. Inside a sales organization I always sent it to my boss & the director of sales to really hold me accountable! Now I have some accountability partners that I share it with.
I’m not telling you that is what you should do BUT will share that I made my pledge for 2011 and when I logged in (after being on vacation since before the holiday) I saw I exceeded it by $4,606. I believe that this is a direct result of not only figuring out a stretch goal for myself BUT also sharing it with other people.
Today, take a moment and decide what you want to accomplish for yourself next year. Then take an even bigger step and leap into the world of accountability:
- Share your goal with 2 other people (or more)
- Set an appointment with yourself for the end of the year to see how you did
- Decide what your celebration will be when you achieve it (and include it in your meeting request)
Wishing you a joyful & profitable 2012.
