Take Time To THINK!
One of the most difficult things for most people to do is to sit down and think. It’s a lost art because we have so many distractions.
In fact, we get more input in a week than our great grandparents got in their whole lifetime.
We have TV, the Internet, radio, baseball, football, politics, the economy, add a war or two, and global warming along with hundreds of other things to think about – besides our careers, our families and where we’d like to be a few years down the road.
It’s real important that you take some time on a regular basis to think about you, your job, your family and what you want your future to look like in sales.
Just spend 30 minutes a week with no kids, no TV, no distractions, thinking about where you are now and where you want to be next month and then next year. Then map out a plan you can follow to get you there on schedule.
As the old saying goes…
“We don’t plan to fail, we just fail to plan.”
Like we’ve said before, the average person spends more time planning a two week vacation than they spend planning their career and retirement.
It’s your career! And if you don’t plan and prepare for your own success, most likely no one else will either!
