A Great Use of Time This Week
Clean up. Clean up. Everybody do your share.
While you are sitting around this week pretending to be busy and counting the hours, just know that there is still something you can do that is a good use of your time.
The life of a salesperson put in anecdotal form is much like standing in the middle of a snow globe while large quantities of flakes fly all around you. This is a good week to let things settle down and then reorganize said snowflakes so that you can shake things up again. Out of chaos comes some pretty good business opportunities!
First, clear everything off of your desk. Break out the Windex and the paper towels and remind yourself what color the desktop was when you bought it.
Second, put things back in place, carefully and purposefully and strategically deciding what belongs there and what doesn’t. Along the way, make a list of the tasks that you are sure to come across.
Next, break out the vacuum. You know what to do with it.
Fourth, rearrange things if you can. Get a new perspective. Find a new window to look out of. Change is good.
Depending on the size and condition of your office and desk, this could be a one hour or a one morning endeavor. But here’s the thing …
The outcome is surprisingly motivational. There is something about this action and I can’t tell you exactly why, but going through the process of sorting and organizing will light a fire under you. Remember that fact the next time you lose your mojo.
Special note: Think of me this Friday afternoon, July 6 at 4:30 p.m. EST as I walk my oldest daughter down the aisle. Just like it’s a blessing that God gives us nine months to prepare for the baby, I was given roughly 18 to prepare for this event. This is my first to go with another wedding planned for Emma and Alex next summer. Pictures to follow!
