I can't get it done because...

Many times I hear this in businesses. Yet the reality is there are many ways to resolve the "Can't" but it requires hard work, investment or ingenuity. The next time you find yourself making excuses, look for the solution to the problem instead of finding more reasons why you "Can't"

Even if the solution is too expensive, has to wait a bit or you have to work hard to get there, at least you have a direction to go to start solving the problem. It is all about the solution, not the problem.

Attitude is everything

And for sure in sales. Many times I have seen reps that have the Golden Touch (Everything they touch turns to gold) only because the believe they can not lose. One the flip side there is the syndrome that they can not win. Every deal is a loser. The difference? It is all attitude.

It is difficult to be positive all the time. The key is on those negative days you have to do the office work, touch those accounts that love you or simply take the day off. Other times you are just not as pumped as you could be. Turn up the positive up beat music, talk to those around you that are positive and pick up some of their energy.

Remember to get out on a positive step and think positive. Next time you think that you are in a slump, check your attitude.

Got an early start on Golf this year!

And starting Monday at midnight a winter storm warning.

Here is a picture of Bill and you can see the course could be greener.
