The salesman was driving to work on the Interstate. As he was zipping along in the passing lane, he couldn't help notice a woman in her brand new Mustang doing only about 65 or 70 miles an hour to his right. There she was with her face up to her rear view mirror putting on her eyeliner! The salesman looked away for a couple of seconds, and when he looked back at her again she was halfway over in his lane and still working on that makeup!
Well, as a man, this sight scared the salesman so badly that he
dropped his electric shaver, which knocked the doughnut out of his other
hand. In all the confusion of trying to straighten out the car using
his knees on the steering wheel, the doughnut knocked the cell phone
away from his ear, causing it to fall into the cup of coffee between his
legs. The following splash burns him in a sensitive spot, ruining his
phone while disconnecting him from a very important call!
"Lousy women drivers!", the salesman thinks to himself.
Moral of the story. True sales professionals know that in order to
be successful at sales you need to be able to focus on the few tasks
that will really have an impact on your work day. True sales
professionals also know that if they are traveling by car they need to
stay focused on the one thing that matters, their driving. This will
make sure that they don't have a major impact, enabling them to arrive
safe and alive at their chosen destination. Drive safe everyone and
enjoy the holiday weekend.
