Have you ever wondered why some people seem to achieve so much in their lives, while others remain where they are? (Invite response) Can you name some people around you who are successful? (Invite response) What is the reason for their success? Is it that those achievers are more capable? Or is it they are more knowledgeable? Or is it that those achievers are specially blessed by lady luck? No. Achievers seem to have the same average knowledge, skill and luck as anyone else. Is it that achievers are more ambitious than others? No. There are so many ambitious people struggling to make ends meet. So, what is the real difference? Everything being equal, ‘Achievers know what they want’ so clearly that they focus their efforts to get what they want. They realize the difference between a ‘Goal’ and just a ‘Wishful thinking’ What separates a ‘Goal’ from just ‘Wishful thinking’? Is there a fool proof test to find the difference? Please have a pen and paper ready. In the next few minutes, we are not only going to find the difference but also are going to set a clear goal for ourselves.
The difference between a ‘Goal’ and just ‘Wishful thinking’ is – A goal passes the ‘Ticket test’ while ‘Wishful thinking’ fails the ticket test.
Are you wondering about what this Ticket test is? Let me explain.
A ticket and a good goal have a lot in common. To understand this, imagine the last time you went on a vacation. You had planned this vacation a number of times and cancelled it in the last minute for some unavoidable reasons. The reasons may have ranged from ‘Not enough leaves’, ‘not enough money in the account’ or something even more common - ‘Just not the right season to visit the place’. But then, one day you said enough is enough. You decided to take that vacation no matter what. You told your family to pack their bags and you went and bought your tickets to the destination.
Exercise: Write down a goal you wish to achieve. Define the 5 critical elements to make it pass the ‘Ticket test’.
POWER OF THAT LITTLE EXTRA IN SERVICE When we deal with the customer day in and day out, sometimes we forget that the service makes a real difference in the customers life. To understand this, let us look at service from our own point of view – i.e. when we are the customer
If at a bank, a customer expects a loan disbursal ..
Now what about when a customer expects a problem to be resolved over the phone? Have you ever tried calling a call center for a banking query, for booking a hotel or even to book a flight ticket? What was the response you got?
Lastly if the behavior hints at neither, our behavior in that particular situation does not have any impact on what the customer will think of us. So it does not matter.
Imagine that a sales trainer wants to sell the unique features of her sales training program. To make the sales managers realize the problems with the current selling skills of his team, what kind of question can she ask?
The first step therefore is to define the unique feature of our product Based on this unique feature, note down the customers who will value the unique features the most. This will give us the customers whom we need to target with our message. But if we meet the right set of customers and just list down the unique features of the product, will they buy?
