I hope your work week is ending well and that your holiday weekend gets to start a little early. If your boss has half a heart you’ll close no later than 3pm tomorrow.
Without further ado, here are a few things I’d like to say thanks for:
1. Exercises That I’d Never Do Without Chiropractor’s Orders but Which Are Awesome: I’ve never consistently done yoga type stretching exercises. Since I threw my back out, I’ve been under a chiropractor’s care. Last two weeks, I’ve been doing some core stretches and strengthening moves. What a perfect way to start a day. There’s nothing like feeling loosened up and stretched out heading out to the office. Highly recommended.
3. Cold Calling: This will surprise you. I’m talking B2B here, so if you see my number pop up on your caller ID and you’re not a business, don’t fear. Cold calling is kind of like doing stretches. It loosens up my sales muscles. It focuses me on how I might be able to help potential clients. It focuses me on producing, getting to know business leaders, and shedding distractions. I totally think it should be a required class in college or high school.
4. My Wife’s Patience: I’ve discovered that I do some play-by-play during reality competition shows. I’m guessing it can be pretty annoying, but she deals with it.
5. Folks Who Lay It on the Line: A friend of mine and his family is going overseas for the summer on a mission trip–the whole family: wife and two kids. It’s not the safest situation, but it’s important, faith-stretching work. What an example.
