Sales Joke of the Day. (archives) A Whole Hour.

One Friday morning, a salesman arrived late with one eye swollen shut, his left arm in a sling, and his clothes in tatters.

"It's 10:00," pointed out the sales manager, "and you were supposed to be here by 9:00."

The salesman explained, "I fell out of a tenth story window."

The sales manager snorted and remarked, "And what, it took you a whole hour to land?"

Moral of the story.  True sales professionals know that sales is a tough racket.   You can't let little things get you down.   No mater what, full speed ahead.     So if you've read down this far, what are doing?   How is this joke going to help you make your number this year?    It's December 13!  Only 12 days until Christmas and only 18 days left until year end.  Only 18 days left to hit your number for the year.   Set aside the seven swans a swimming and the partridge in a pear tree for a moment and focus on taking care of business today.  They'll be plenty of time for shopping and getting ready for the holiday season over the weekend.   Want a shot at just one of the five golden rings this year?  Then get back to work.....   At year end, an extra hour here or there can make a world of difference.

Good luck!
