What a Superbowl! Man, that was a great game and the party in South Louisiana may last until May.
I love New Orleans. In 2005 I went there with 1500 lbs. of relief supplies for the NOLA Police department. You see, I am from Louisiana, and some of my family lived (a few still live) in New Orleans. The picture that you see here, I took 3 blocks from the French Quarter. When I was there there were tons of troops, few people and boat rescues still taking place.
Last night in the French Quarter the scene below was taking place.
This city committed itself to rebuild and to comeback from the brink. Many people don’t really know how bad it was in New Orleans. But this city stuck with it and fought back. Much like the Saints did last night.
So here is the question for you… Are you willing to fight back? 2009 was a bad year. According to CSO Insights, only 55% of sales people hit their number.
Are you able to take a huge blow in your sales world and still keep fighting? We lose deals. We screw up and lose customers. Stuff happens. The bottom line is “How do we deal with it?”
“Never, never, never, never give up!” – Winston Churchill
I am proud of New Orleans… the city and the team. It would be easy to quit, to give up, to move away… But they stuck it out. We can learn from this. Suck it up, try and on-side kick and keep on getting better. So… what is your plan to fight back this year?
Oh.. and for the record… WHO DAT?!?
