New Year’s Resolution to Salespeople-Organize Yourself to Success

Jan 4, 2023

Salespeople are naturally not an organized bunch. We are traditionally multitaskers who spend more time bouncing balls in the air than organizing our files. However, to get great salespeople, we first need to learn to do something quite the opposite of who we are, organizing ourselves to succeed. As the New Year begins, this should be every salesperson’s New Year’s Resolution


Organizing yourself to succeed as a salesperson is essential. It does not have to be complicated and time-consuming, but it should be done consistently. To organize ourselves for success, we first need to evaluate where we are and where we want to go. Ask yourself what has been working and what needs improvement in the upcoming year. Once you answer these questions, you can organize your activities into actionable steps to help you reach your goals.


The tools needed to organize oneself for success as a salesperson varies from person to person. Some standard tools include goal-setting worksheets, daily task lists, project tracking documents, customer contact sheets, and organized filing systems. These tools, combined with organization strategies such as maintaining a daily routine, setting small milestones for your goals, and staying focused, can help organize a salesperson for success.


Taking the time to organize ourselves for success can lead to better sales and a more successful career. This New Year, make it your goal to organize yourself for success as a salesperson, and it will be worth the effort in the end!


Organizing oneself is critical to succeeding as a salesperson. With the right tools, strategies, and determination, one can manage themselves into an efficient and successful salesperson in the new year. So, make it your New Year’s Resolution to organize yourself to success!


By taking these steps, you will become more organized and ultimately enjoy more success in the upcoming year. Good luck making this resolution a reality in 2023!


Happy Organizing! and Happy New Year!
