Scott Ingram: You’re listening to the Daily Sales Tips podcast and I’m your host, Scott Ingram. Today with the long Memorial Day weekend in the U.S., I thought I’d share another quick idea of my own rather than featuring another of our amazing contributors on a day that probably won’t be quite as popular as most others. But thank you for taking the time to listen to this.
Since it’s a long weekend. I want to talk about intentionality. I think a lot about what I’m going to do and why I try to make intentional choices and decide my direction and my actions rather than just letting things happen to me or being driven by distraction or shiny objects.
Now, I think I’ve talked about working on weekends before, and I’m not going to pass any type of judgment here because I think the rightness or the wrongness of working on weekends is up to that individual. It depends on their situation, their goals, their priorities. But most importantly, I hope that the choice was made intentionally.
Personally, I tend to do a fair amount of work on the weekends. Now I’m recording this just before the weekend started, but my plan is to do a fair amount of work on Saturday like I typically do. I’ll take a bit more advantage of the long weekend on Sunday and dial things back and be a little bit more relaxed. But then I’ve chosen to really take advantage of the quiet on Monday. I’ve got a number of priorities that I want to make some progress on. And the Monday where I don’t have the normal family demands or work demands is a perfect opportunity for me. So that’s what I’m choosing.
What are you choosing? Are you being intentional about those choices and really driving at the outcomes that are going to make the biggest impact for you in whatever area of your life you’re focused on?
Give it some thought. Act with purpose, and then come on back tomorrow for another great sales tip. Thanks for listening.
