Sales is an Outcome: Don’t Make It Your Goal

by Shawn Karol Sandy, on Jan 2, 2021 9:40:00 AM

If you asked 10 Sales Pros what their primary goal would be, you’d predictably get some variation of, “Close more deals,” or “Grow revenue,” or “Make my quota and bonus.”

I like the “eye on the prize” mentality but question those answers as goals.

They are outcomes. They are results.

If you ask athletes what their goals are, they want to win, but their goals are the actions they take in the games, “Take .05 seconds off my time,” or “don’t let their shooter free up,” or “hit the 3 pointers.” They work toward scoring, they practice the skills that help them score. They run drills that help keep improving their reflexes and speed.

There is no way to practice “winning.”

Their goal is to practice to continually improve.
