There are all sorts of clichés when it comes to ringing in the New Year, especially about resolutions. It’s a clean slate, a fresh start, “new year, new you”, yadda, yadda. For the most part, making that promise to yourself, even boasting about it with others, is a generally nice idea.

Having a resolution makes us feel good about ourselves and our future – yes we can! Unfortunately, people don’t really work like that. Our personal lives have no stop or pause button, and and we slowly grow at the turn of each year the same way we do the rest of the year.

Not so for business.

2015 Happy New YearOur professional life really does get to have a fresh start each new year, with new budgets and a wide open path from Q1 to the end of Q4. Sometimes it doesn’t seem like an opportunity, but it is! We’re usually able to make meaningful changes to methods and strategies that will impact the new year. We are given the chance to change what we’re doing with our teams to kick off 2015 right, to drive ahead, leading the charge to make this year even better than the last.

So this year, instead of trying to change who you are, you can focus on changing what you do. All of those “coulda, woulda, shoulda” things of 2014 are over and can be transformed into the successes of 2015 – from your sales kick-off to strategies to the way you think about the sales experience.

Here’s your chance to take action – both on the personal and work front. Successes at work often lead to a more fulfilling life away from the office, boosting your confidence and opening doors to more exciting opportunities. With the right mindset and plan, you’re finally set on the right path to your resolution.

The countdown is on, so here’s to you and your upcoming achievements!
