I guess it is the added stress in the beginning of every project. There is a constant pressure to finish, complete, and be perfect. Before the paint application can happen, there is always the question of what should go where. A lot of the stress is from the fact that we are always trying to finish, and we feel like we are not good enough to do anything else.
It’s also a lot of pressure from the fear of not fitting in. This is especially true if we are not a part of something larger and happen to be doing something that is in opposition to what we were hired to do.
A lot of the stress that comes from this is that we want to do everything perfect and we also assume that if we do everything perfectly we will be a part of something bigger. It is a constant battle to not let our actions affect the outcome, but it is also a constant battle to not let our opinions affect the outcome.
This is one of our more ridiculous examples of the “overfocused add,” a phenomenon that is often found in salespeople. We have all been called in for an assignment that we have been told will need to be done perfectly or else we are out a lot of money. Sometimes we are told that we may not be able to do the assignment at all, even though we have been given a time budget and a strict deadline.
When we think we are overfocused, our thoughts and actions are so much more successful (as well as being more intense for the sake of intensity), so we tend to forget that we are being overfocused.
People often have this tendency of being overfocused when they have the desire, but never execute, the idea. The problem with this is that when you are overfocused on something you don’t follow through. In a lot of salespeople’s work, they will do the job perfectly but not execute on it. They are so focused on the job, they will end up spending a lot of time in meetings and focus on their clients instead of on the job at hand.
This is why it is so important to do a little work on the job. Instead of sitting in meetings and saying “Hey, I have to get paid today.” you can say, “Hey, I have a project that I need to get done.” This will force you to actually put in a little effort in the work.
If we were doing a job ourselves and we were focused on it all the time, we would spend a lot more time on it. So what’s the real story behind the added focus you see in the picture? It’s the job. It’s not just that you’re not focusing on the job, you’re actively ignoring it. This is the case with a lot of salespeople. If you’re getting paid to promote, then you’re not focused on the job.
As a salesperson, you’re not really selling anything. You’re selling your time. The amount of time you spend on your job is directly related to the amount of money you make. The amount of money you make is directly related to how much time you spend on the job.
So why is salespeople so over-focused? I think it has to do with a lack of clarity in our own minds about what exactly to do on a sale. When youre selling you have to convince the prospect that you have a product they can use and that they can get better value from it by using it. That means you have to know what you do and don’t do. You have to know what you stand for.
