“The Sales Moment” Issue #5
Recently while traveling through Milwaukee’s Mitchell International Airport, I passed through Security. After taking off my shoes, taking out my computer and watching everyone disassemble their belongings for the Security Check I saw this sign. This area is especially designed for you to put your shoes on, re-pack your bags and pull yourself together.
The definition for Discombulated: To confuse or disconcert; upset; frustrate.
That certainly explains how I felt while going through Security.
Have you ever felt discombobulated? In my personal, sales and business life I have felt this way many times. More than I care to admit.
Stephen Covey said that everyone should set aside some time each week to get in a quiet place and schedule our time. Dan Miller has stated many times that he plans out most of next year’s schedule by November of the current year.
Wouldn’t it be great if we had a “Recombobulation Area” in our own life? A place where we can sort out the confusion of the past week and relieve the frustration?
Well we can! It may be in a daily quiet time set aside to spend time with God. The Bible documents many times when Jesus would go off by himself to pray and prepare himself. When I exercise or walk it gives me time to think and relax. It may be playing an instrument or finding a quiet place to read.
I know from experience that when I have a lot of loose ends in my life, it increases my stress. Take time this week to get “Recombobulated”. If it was good enough for Jesus…it is more than enough for me.
Have a great week!
