The article presents advice on how salespeople should make their New Year's resolution so that they will be able to achieve them. Make the resolutions specific, so instead of simply wanting to make more money, try changing the goal into bringing more sales by increasing one's cold calls. Make the goals measurable by setting an amount on how much one wants to make. Write the resolution down and put it in a visible place so as to remind the salesperson about his/her goals.
