I had a great group in my “Applications” session yesterday.
One of the topics was, “How many people made a New Year’s resolution on January 1st and have already broken it, remade it and broken it again?”
Seriously, today is January 26th. We have already ‘used up’ 19 of the 263 weekdays that we started the year with. That’s 7% of the days. Have you done 7% of what you resolved to do?
If you resolved to make 2,000 sales calls this year, have you made 144 of them already?
If you resolved to work out 3 times a week, have you worked out 11 times since 1/1?
If you resolved to lose 20 pounds this year, have you said, “No.” to 5,000 calories, so far? (or done 7% of the behavior that you need to do?)
What will it take to get and keep you on track?
Do you really want another year to go by?
Do you really want another month or even day to go by?
It is not a sin to be human.
It is not a sin to need help.
Get a coach!
If it’s weight, join one of those you-know-whats.
If it’s exercise, get a personal trainer.
If it’s sales, hire a sales coach.
