On Being Left Alone
I am objectively tired of dealing with people. I’m ready and willing to be a recluse. Buy a cabin somewhere quiet and green. Plug all the outlets so I can’t charge my phone. Bury my computer in the backyard of a house I don’t own. Breathe air that is clean and not talk to anyone, ever again. I’m only sort of joking.
Intrinsic vs. Extrinsic Motivation
I once had a running coach whose primary method of motivation was to either shame or denigrate. He almost never gave anyone positive affirmation, and that method probably worked for some of his athletes. But for as many people who need someone to constantly push them, there are just as many people who push themselves hard enough. When my coach said things like “you can do better,” he was only echoing what I already thought. His words didn’t motivate me further, rather, they had the perverse effect of de-motivating me.

Sales is superior but a hard career to pursue.
Most people think that salesperson selling means talking. But they don’t know that listening is the most important part of their job now. When Reps take the role of a curious student rather than the role of an informed expert, then they are much more inclined to engage their buyers. As sales associates, it is our job to ensure that our customers always remember us and never forget us. It is not the customer’s job to remember you.

A drastic change of times from 1988 till May’2022.
My thought goes way back to 1988 when I was awarded the Gold Medal:. When I was just 27 years old and had appeared in my Post Graduate Diploma in Marketing and Sales Management (PGDMSM) by attending the evening management college in Ludhiana, covering this under Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan-which was then a renowned institute offering such a course. Those days, the MBA was not being conferred in most of the management colleges, as is happening still with some of the prestigious management institutes, having the lead role nowadays. The joyful news was that I had secured 70.50% marks cumulative in all the subjects and was adjudged topper. I remember those days around 32 years back; it was considered a very great achievement, and I was awarded the Gold Medal by the then Vice Chancellor-Prof. G S Randhawa of the Guru Nanak Dev University of Amritsar.
