I think I’ve figured it out, all we have to do is stop thinking to make our lives easier.
Don’t you see, if we stopped questioning – stopped trying to get better – stopped thinking; all the pressure would be off and we could just move on with our lives.
As happy as a snowman with a new carrot nose and a blue scarf around our necks. Where no matter how chilly the weather got we would be comfortable.
Although, once the temperatures started to rise like our sales goals tend to do, we’d melt under the pressure.
Maybe not thinking isn’t such a good idea. *sigh* well on April Fool’s Day it was a nice thought – just for a moment wasn’t it?
Unfortunately for anyone in a sales leadership position, not thinking isn’t an option. You need to:
> analyze past successes and failures
> ask questions about today’s deals
> look into the future to determine what the next big thing is going to be.
All while working with the people on your team to make sure they are doing the same thing within their own accounts, deals, and career.
Basically you are thinking for yourself and making sure everyone on your team is thinking for themselves as well. That is a lot of thinking (so never mind about the just stop doing it comment)!
ps: yes I know it is April 1st & I used a snowmen image… if you don’t get it you are obviously not familiar with the weather in Northern NY.
