TGID (Thank Goodness It's Dalton!) Newsletters

Our short and sweet TGID newsletters are emailed every Friday to Dalton distributors. Sometimes you'll find a write up on a new cartridge heater or platen heater application, and other times you'll find tried-and-true selling tips. We also take the time to occasionally spotlight one of our many fine Dalton employees.

One thing you will always find in TGID is our Friday Funnies—this is sure to give you an end-of-week chuckle or smile. We invite you to read, learn, and enjoy TGID!

Resolutions

What's that? ... You've never failed a New Year's Resolution? Oh, it's because you never made one. Is a New Year's Resolution something that goes in one year and comes out the other? Here's two points that will help change your thinking about the impossibility of Resolutions ...

Focus on the Positive ... Resolutions that focus on the negative require far too much motivation and resolve. "I'm going to ....." is much easier than "I'm not going to ....... anymore!" What are the things you are good at? What are the successes that will make a difference in your life? If there is a negative in your personal or professional world, what is the positive step that you must take to eliminate it?

Big Goals / Small steps ... The problem with many Resolutions is they are too tough to keep. It is human nature to bite off more than we can chew. Instead of setting a giant resolution like increasing sales for the year, try setting monthly goals of increasing sales. If your January sales exceed last January's sales, you have succeeded !!! Or try setting a weekly goal of calling on a new company. Too often the easy route is to work in our comfort zone ... extend yourself and dig up a completely new prospect each week and make the call.

And finally, track those successes. Write them down. Looking at them will give you a sense of empowerment and motivation.

New Year Quotes:

 

Mark Twain
New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls and humbug resolutions.

Jay Leno
Now there are more overweight people in America than average-weight people. So overweight people are now average… which means, you have met your New Year's resolution.

Eric Zorn
Making resolutions is a cleansing ritual of self assessment and repentance that demands personal honesty and, ultimately, reinforces humility. Breaking them is part of the cycle.

Joey Adams
May all your troubles last as long as your New Year's resolutions!
