“The smallest good act today is the capture of a strategic point from which, a few months later, you may be able to go on to victories you never dreamed of.”
–C.S. Lewis (1898–1963)
Irish writer and scholar
How many of us have wished we’d given something (or someone) a little extra effort or attention earlier in the quarter/ year rather than later?
Lewis’s thought encourages us to care about what/ who is in front of us now… to fully use today (this salesday) and enjoy what it brings us in the future.
If you’ve not seen them, a few things we hope you enjoy during a well-earned break or over the weekend…
- A quick (2.5 min.) video made by Chick-fil-A to remind their employees that their customers are people and they may have things going on in their lives (a good thing to remember as you sell and service your prospects and customers).
- My personal experiment: A device diet last year that led to a permanent change for the better (speaks to that ‘life in front’ of you point).
- A great little 15-minute video on the value of a smile, being encouraging and resilient, and the impact we have on others (even when we don’t realize it).
(too bad it’s Friday, the last salesday of the week)
