Today is here , How will you handle it
The answer lies in Yesterday’s preparation, and This morning’s activity
PREPARING TO WORK IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS THE PERFORMANCE
1. SET THE GOAL FOR THE DAY
What will you accomplish , make it simple and specific, don’t allow your self to drift aimlessly through your day relying on Chance. Set a defined goal
” I will sell ___ ”
” I will make __ new contacts”
” I will call __ current customers”
” I will study ________”
” I will leave today prepared for tomorrow”
2. PREPARE TO WORK YOUR PLAN
A common sales day is filled with distractions, Work place drama, Office politics, Internal issues, Gossip, Home place interruptions, and many other situations and people that will derail even the best of intentions.
The key ; Discipline
Be disciplined in your approach to your day, prioritize your tasks, Write down the tasks for the day and check them off as you finish.
Plan to avoid the parts of your work environment that tend to steal your time and attention. Stay out of the “break room” avoid the “gathering spots” ( Every work place has them ) These places tend to rob your time and impact negatively on your attitude . In the end staying focused on your plan will result in a fulfilling work day and a profitable selling day
3. REDISCOVER THE VALUE OF QUIET TIME IN THE MORNINGS
Even if you have to get up a little earlier, just a little time in the morning , in quiet meditation, Prayer, or reflection is worth Thousands to you in additional income. Not because it provokes some mythical spirit of wealth that bestows you with sales. It does however , kindle a fire within you, a quiet determination to have a good day , and a reassurance of whats truly important in your life. It prepares you to interact with Customers and Co-workers in a positive manner and this results in SALES
And the final tip for this post ;
4. BRING GENUINE ENTHUSIASM TO WORK WITH YOU
Don’t count on it being there when you arrive, don’t blame others for the lack of it in your work place BRING IT . I would much rather be known at work for being the guy that is way too fired up ,than for being the guy that is way too burnt out.
Sell like your living depends on it
