Back in our school days (or school daze for some) there were specific academic achievements that needed to be accomplished to graduate from one grade to the next, from grade school to high-school, high-school to college and so forth. The track was all laid out and it was clear (to the non-dazed folks at least) what needed to be accomplished to move forward and succeed.
At some point, we entered the working world and all that changed. We had multiple tracks to choose from and the path to success became considerably more fuzzy.
Some people chose a less than desirable track. These folks can be found complaining about their job most days. Other folks were headed in the right direction but then, for various reasons, got side-tracked. Both folks will find that if they continue heading in the wrong direction they’ll ultimately end up in the wrong place.
What you do today shapes your tomorrows. Where you end up then depends on what track you’re on now.
This principle applies to not only your long-term goals but also your short-term objectives. In sales, what you achieve in a given month will determine if you’re on track to meet your goal for the quarter. A successful quarter will put you on the right track for a successful year.
And, of course, a successful Monday will put you on track for a successful week!
Make a Great Day!
