A topic that occasionally comes up during a mentoring session is “I am in a rut.” In my opinion, the best way to get out of a rut is to change something in your personal or business life. The following are suggestions that may help:
- Hire the best salesperson away from your competition.
- Remember the 80/20 rule and fire the 80% of your customers that account for 20% of your sales and usually take up most of your time.
- Start a blog.
- Visit your best customers in person.
- Delete your website and start with the simplest possible site.
- Listen to quality motivational CD’s instead of the radio in your car.
- Find new products/services for your existing customers to buy.
- Go for a walk during lunch.
- Turn off your internet access for longer than you thought possible.
- Write a minimum of 3 thank you notes every day.
- Make it a point to add 2 new contacts to your “class A” data base every day.
- Start company diary/scrapbook
- Host a conference for your peer group.
- Set up a networking meeting to benefit your best customers.
It’s easy to get in a rut and the only person who can get you out of it is yourself. The common thread in these suggestions is for you to do something different.
Even if you don’t feel that you are in a rut, changing your daily pattern is a good way to stimulate your thinking and to enhance your performance and enthusiasm.
