What would make a better story?

Steal Like An Artist, page 47

Every day when I get up, I think about what I want my day to BE. Not be like but actually be. That way when I am winding down as the day is ending I can look back and see what the day actually was.

There are times when it is a single word:

  • fun
  • productive
  • adventure
  • profitable
  • joyful

and at other times there is more to it than a single word.

The same principle applies to your life and your career:
Whenever you’re at a loss for what move to make next, just ask yourself, “What would make a better story?” ~ Austin Kleon

That quote struck me as the same idea. Look at what is going on for you right now in your sales career and decide if it is REALLY what you want.

  • If it is – keep it up and edit to make a the story even better.
  • If it isn’t what you want – crumple up the pages and begin again.

Regardless, make sure that you remember to read your own story as you’re writing it. We can’t go back but we can make edits so the rest of the story is one we want to read.
