The first step to reaching your goals is to write them down.
I went to the Pampered Chef Back to Business meeting the other night to find out the incintive trip for this year. Before that was announced, my director took our group in the hall to do recognition for our team. I found out that I had top sales in her team last year, with $18782.22. When we went back in to the room where the other directors were setting up I was able to look at the posters for top sellers in their own teams. I realized that most of the top sellers were much higher than my sales by double and about the 3rd person down was near my totals.
The meeting started and we sat down to watch the video from home office that would announce our big incintive trip. They started the video with an annoucement that was not expected. There is an extra trip available this year! This is a half way mark trip! That you get to go and enjoy this november! And if you reach the points to earn that trip, you are half way to the other trip. And that trip is a cruise for two!!!
I was very excited. Now as a stay at home mom, I can focus better on this career and I want both of those trips! I want to take my husband on a FREE trip! The pay for the air fare, they pay for the all inclusive part of room and food. Pampered Chef is so awesome! There are other home based businesses that pay for your hotel but not your flight, or pay for your flight but that is it. I am so lucky to work for this company, who really loves their consultants and put us first.
My goals: To 'double dip' I want both trips. I need to have about 6 to 8 shows a month with 1 recruit a month. If I can't fill up the rest of this month I need to over book next month, since that is a double points month. But I will do this. It is my goal, to reach this goal I must over come a big obsticle of talking to strangers. I also must make time every day for calls and keep my desk an organized toy-free zone. I spent an hour yesterday cleaning the desk.
I also have a goal to eat better and work out. I can't refer to this as a diet because that will just ruin it for me from the get go. So I have no other goal in that than to feel better daily by exercising and eating healthier. By exercising 2 to 3 times a week I hope to be a more understanding and better mom. I also will run for another board position at Big Girl J's preschool, that will be Big Girl J and Little Miss O's preschool next year. And for the sake of just having the bathroom re-tiled, I also promise to not complain about the bathroom needing to be re-done!
I also will 'resolve' to right down all of my goals. And tell people about them so I can be held accountable and will have a better chance of reaching these goals.
