A Resolution for a Day


Another year has rolled around and New Year’s resolutions are a hot topic. Whether you consider them an exercise in futility or a chance for self-improvement, consider setting some resolutions this year.

Specific statistics are hard to pin down but a scouring of articles and surveys shows that between 55 and 75 per cent of people make New Year’s resolutions. One quarter of those resolutions are broken by the middle of January. Don’t be one of those failures.

When I make New Years Resolutions, they are generally directed towards how I am going to conduct or improve on my business. “I think it is important to consider the coming year and to plan ahead. Success isn’t accidental. My resolution for 2013 is to focus specifically on paying greater attention to my current needs needs and prospecting more effectively for new clients.

Many of my colleagues (myself included) have a tendency to wait for business to come to me via word-or-mouth or to prospect ‘passively’ by advertising and waiting for them to contact us. In 2013 I want to make it a point to ask for business EVERY time I meet someone new.

Specifically, my resolution is to actively pursue my current client base to insure they are receiving the highest standard of service and for their support and referral when speaking to their sphere of influence.”

Let me challenge you to take a moment and reflect on 2012. How could you have performed better and how will you make needed changes in 2013 to rise above the status quo.
