Goal setting is one of the most important aspects to have in life because it gives people the capability to set out their intentions and targets with a sense of purpose. It also helps prioritize and provides a sense of purpose in life.

According to the article by Forbes, a goal can be anything people want to do or a specific action they need to accomplish. For example, a person may want to become rich and have a huge mansion, or someone may want to exceed their sales goal by 20% to get a higher commission payout or win an incentive trip. A goal can be something as simple as getting up at 7:00 am every day or something more complex like taking a competitive programming certification in order to level up their skills for a job promotion. In order to set goals, you must have a clear idea of what you want in your life and how to achieve it. One way to start setting goals is by writing down what your passions are, what you like doing, and why. Then you can use these ideas to establish a goal and it becomes about getting better at something or learning more about it.

Achieve Zen-like Concentration in the Office

It's okay to be unavailable for chit-chat.

As sales managers, it is financially beneficial to maximize our daytime productivity to achieve our greatest bonus potential, and that means avoiding interruptions.

As important as it is to build rapport with your coworkers, we must also protect our peak sales time. Ask those who stop by if the conversation can resume after peak selling times. Very often, we can deflect the interruption with a cordial,

“You know, I’m really busy right now. I have so many high-priority items on my plate that will affect my numbers today. Can we get together at 5:30?”

When one of your sales peers or someone from another department says, “Hey, can you help me with this,” our inclination is to say yes. Although being a team player is an important value, we want to ensure we are not missing out on potential revenue.  So ask your coworker if you can assist them after you close your business for the day. It may take a few times, but your coworkers will start to understand that you are focused on bringing in revenue which will ultimately benefit the entire company.

Remaining focused on maximizing your peak sales time will result in higher sales and revenue for you and your coworkers.  If you need to find a quiet spot, see if you can utilize an out of order guest room to make your sales calls.  This will allow you to remain on task without getting distracted by competing demands.

Managing your peak sales time is a skill that will result in peak revenue.
