Now that the holiday rush is over and the calendar has turned to 2013, what’s your plan to make the most of the next 12 months? I always hear people say that the last year flew right by, but I don’t always hear them say why they flew by so fast or what they actually accomplished while that time was flying by. If they had taken the time to write down some goals, then they could have at least graded themselves on whether they achieved something during the year.

The best way to write your plan is through SMART goals. SMART goals are:
-Specific
-Measurable
-Attainable
-Relevant
-Time-sensitive

Here’s the full write-up from Wikipedia, and this article from Business Insider gives a great game plan.

The first step is writing these goals down; the next step is actually putting a plan together to make them happen.

I found this great quote that says this even more eloquently:
“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.”
-Pablo Picasso

My top goal in 2013 is to build a resource center for top sales professionals and managers; what’s yours?
