Greeting readers. It has certainly been a long time since I’ve connected with you. Welcome back.
At the beginning of the year, I found myself traveling much more than I normally had to. In addition, we had an almost four month streak of members of our household getting sick. We have young twins and they just started going to nursery school. The amount of ear infections, sinus infections, colds, etc is staggering. Kids really are gross, but I love them.
I didn’t make the decision to get back to writing until about an hour ago. The reality is that Sales and Tonic took a backseat to life, and that’s okay. But, it is an outlet and I wanted to get back to it. I receive really positive feedback when sharing content and that’s what it’s all about. I’ve been reflecting on this a lot lately and have come to the conclusion that the most valuable commodity in the world is time. It’s the one thing that we all have the same amount of. We all have 24 hours per day and 7 days per week. If you read any self help book from a successful business person, or a blog from a star athlete, you will usually find a chapter dedicated to their routine and time management. This isn’t a coincidence. The most successful people in the world have an almost fanatical approach to how they manage their time.
A few months ago, we published this article which went into a schedule for aggressive sales prospecting. Aside from a few of our sales travel guides, this was one of the most well received articles we published. That tells me that time management is very important to our readers and you can expect more content like that in the near future.
