Tis The Season
I first wanted to wish everybody a Happy Holiday season. The Zirilli family celebrated Christmas but we have many friends, neighbors and co-workers who partook in other festivities based on their beliefs. Our family wishes yours the best and a prosperous 2012.
The gift giving event that took place on December 25th in our home was a collaborated effort between the North Pole and New Jersey that took planning, plotting and creativity. It’s important that Santa doesn’t have the same list as we do and vice versa.
The Event Happens Because The Process Is In Place
The people that make this day possible on a yearly basis (St. Nick nor I are rookies) are able to have success because of the years of practice and the adjustments that we make every year to improve the process of sorting and filling the wish list.
I ask for kids lists early, it’s prioritized and the Mrs. and I personally sort through what we feel is appropriate. Once that is done Santa decides how much of the load he is going to carry. I now have a basic game plan for holiday success.
My children see this day as an event but the people making the magic happen understand it is the process that makes this event a success.
Minimize The Anxiety In Your Events
How do you approach your business? Does your sales process consist of downing Benadryl to launch a preemptive strike against the reaction you will have to rejection? Do you even have a sales process?
Focus on the action you take and not the outcome of those actions and you will see success. If you want more success, take more action. Have a process in place and continue to expand your actions. The economy is in a recession but Santa produced bigger smiles in our house this year.
Santa planned better and took more action to produce greater results. Plain and simple he just got busy and made it happen.
