When a boxer is said to have “heavy hands,” it means that their punches cause a lot of damage. Some slight, very unassuming fighters possess devastating, knockout power. These heavy-handed punchers beat fighters who appear to be bigger, stronger, faster, and more skilled. “Heavy hands” in the world of sales is made up of a few different …

Great athletes perceive the sport or game they play as occurring at a much slower pace than others. Someone without the training, the development, and the experience would see the speed as shockingly fast. There was an Air Force colonel named John Boyd. Boyd developed the OODA loop. The first “O” stands for observe. The …

Airtable is an online database that looks and acts like a spreadsheet. That makes it perfect for quantifying yourself (You can learn more about the quantified-self movement here if you are interested). I created a table for tracking how I spend my time.

When I was about 21 years old, I moved to Los Angeles, California. I had a nice, one-bedroom apartment in Brentwood, and I had a good job. When I moved in, I bought a state-of-the-art answering machine (state-of-the-art in 1990). This answering machine stored messages on a little, tiny cassette tape. Cassette tapes are nothing …

Sometimes you can make selling feel like a battle of wills. You can get wrapped around the axle, becoming so attached to the outcome you want that you end up doing more harm than good.

The biggest mistake I have ever made in business was believing that if I hired people and paid them well enough that I would not have to hold them accountable. With few exceptions, most people don’t produce the result they are capable of without some level of accountability. Goals by themselves don’t provide accountability. Neither …

When luxuries become necessities people become soft. Leads that are generated by marketing are a luxury. Countless B2B businesses exist–and grow–without marketing generated leads. If marketing generated leads are a necessity, you have a serious challenge as a sales organization. It’s not that marketing shouldn’t generate leads. It’s that you should rely on your marketing …

Imagine, if you will, that you have a bucket. You’ve had this bucket for a very long time. Once it was full of clean water, and now it is full of dirty water. Every day more dirt is dropped into your bucket of water. The water is no longer useful to you. In fact, the …
