Sometime ago, I had a client come to me that had extraordinary potential – established in the marketplace, new the business, and had already been pretty successful. Unfortunately, with the success he had lost control of his life. Constantly fighting "fires" and being totally reactive had made the future look less optimistic with each passing day.
If that sounds like you, you are not alone. In sales and sales management we are often caught- how to do we do what we need to do, when everyone else needs something as well? We find that the most productive part of our day is before everyone gets to the office and phone starts ringing. There are a few things we can do to make sure we stay in control and move our businesses forward, not just help everyone else, throughout the day.
