Hunting Big Sales with Tom Searcy

The Power of a Sales Bucket List

The Power of a Sales Bucket List

I just turned 50. I know it’s just a number, still…. The day itself passed without much fanfare and I truly did not feel much different than the day before. Over the course of the next few days, however, I did start to consider what were my past milestones and what I want my future ones to be. Of course, a bucket list is bigger than your career. We do spend a lot of our time working, so having a few items from a sales career on the list makes sense.

I challenge you to make a bucket list for your sales career.

To help you get started, here are some challenges to consider:

  • What is the size of the biggest sale you would like to land?
  • Is there a company with whom you have always wanted to work?
  • How many people would you like to successfully mentor?
  • If you are a local or regional sales person, would you like to set a goal of closing a national or international customer?
  • Would you challenge yourself to publish a book on your knowledge, participate in a nationally recognized panel on the topic or record a nationally distributed video on your insights?

Here are a few of my own:

  • Close an 11-figure contract.
  • Write a New York Times bestseller on selling.
  • Speak to an audience of greater than 10,000 at one event.

Bucket lists are big items that challenge you. These ones challenge me. What is on your list?
