For the Love of the Job
I greatly admire people who do what they do simply because they love doing it. Their passion is inspiring to me. Regardless of the industry or their age, someone who has a deep commitment to their work finds a level of satisfaction in the every day activity, and not just the results. They inspire others to do their absolute best as well.
The 20-year-old kid that the Red Sox has planned as third-base is an absolute joy to watch. The Blue Jays had the bases loaded last night (August 28, 2017) and the batter hit one down the third base line. Fair ball. Devers takes it on a hop, thinks about going to first and then fires home just in time to get the force out. Run saved. Great play. They flash the camera back to him and he has reached into his back pocket for more sunflower seeds, casually popping them into his mouth as if nothing had happened. It was hilarious to watch in real time.
I love sales. I love the freedom. I love the income potential. I absolutely, positively love what I do. Why everyone is not in sales is beyond me.
Eckardt Tolle (A New Earth) says that the purpose of your life is to do whatever you’re doing right now to your absolute highest and best ability. I’ve seen it put more crudely and succinctly: “If you don’t like your job quit. Otherwise, shut up.”
Hear what Nathan O’Donnell had to say about my online training programs:
- On the instructors: “Bill Farquharson and Kelly Mallozzi are truly great instructors and leaders in this industry.”
- On the quality: “I’ve learned more about sales during this course than in 5 years. I’ve taken 9 pages of notes on this course and I know I’ll be referring to them to grab some ideas.”
It’s back: Take The Sales Challenge!
