I was rereading some of my old sales columns. I came across this:
It’s good to nourish your soul.
That’s even more important today.
I’ve always believed that to be successful, especially in sales, you have to work hard. Yet, just working hard isn’t enough to guarantee success. Relaxation and renewal has to be part of your hard work. This year I took time off. I relaxed. I accepted that not working was as valuable as working. Do you give yourself permission to nourish your soul? I never did. Now I do. I’m happier. I’m healthier and I’m just as successful.
You can (and should) take one day a week to chill. Do what you want to do. I predict you’ll sell more successfully. Let me know how it’s working for you when you do!
