How To Develop A Sales Bucket List

What are some of the goals you want to accomplish in your professional career? Do you have a list of S.M.A.R.T goals?

You’ve probably heard the term “bucket list” before. A bucket list normally comprises of items you want to complete before you “kick the bucket.” Your bucket list may include things like countries you want to visit, foods you want to try, or people you want to meet. Since you’re a hardworking professional, it’s definitely worth your time to sit down and create a sales bucket list.

What To Include

Need some ideas to start with? Your sales bucket list should include your goals and a timeline for when you expect to accomplish them. These are different from your S.M.A.R.T goals because they allow you to dream a little. You can create S.M.A.R.T goals to help you check items off your bucket list, but your bucket list should act more as a “hopes and dreams” list.

Plus, remember that these don’t have to be daily or even yearly items. They can be dreams that you’d like to accomplish at least once in your life. It’s a stress-free list. For example:

  • Go one full year without having any weeks with 0 sales
  • Successfully sell three or more policies to the same person
  • Become licensed to sell life insurance
  • Significantly change someone’s life for the better by helping them with health care
  • Successfully mentor at least one individual
  • Write a book about selling
  • Speak about selling to an audience of at least 1,000 people

You should tailor your sales bucket list according to your personal hopes and dreams. Even if you think it may take you years to check them off your list, writing them down can make your dreams seem more official and worthy of attempting.
