Sales Joke of the Day (May 28) Memory.

A sales rep on vacation and on a tour was introduced to an Indian in New Mexico who was said to have a perfect memory.  Skeptical, the sale rep asked, "What did you have for breakfast on September 10, 1943?"

The Indian answered, Eggs."

The sales rep scoffed, "Everyone has eggs for breakfast.  He's a phony."

Thirteen years later the sales rep, on business this time, again stopped in the same small New Mexico town and he saw the same Indian sitting on the train platform.  The sales rep went up to him and said jovially, "How!"

The Indian answered, "Scrambled."

Moral of the story:   Memory whether its good or bad you will be remembered by your customers for how well you remembered their goals, their problems, their concerns.   Remember to exercise your memory everyday lest it become "scrambled."

"An education isn't "how" much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know.  It's being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don't."
-  Anatole France 

"How" long before this team does the right thing and
changes their team name?
