Multi-Tasking is a Myth

What’s the definition of multi-tasking? It's doing a lot of things at once, and most often, that means doing them poorly. In fact, research proves that multi-tasking is largely a myth; our brains are not wired to focus on multiple things at once. Studies show that multi-tasking ruins productivity, causes mistakes and dampens creative thought. Yet, many people keep trying, simply because they have too much to do and too little time to do it in. The solution is simple: get your priorities…See More

Is Prospecting for Customers a Lost Art?

As a salesperson, do you wait for leads and ups, or do you go out and actively prospect for new customers?  No matter how great a salesperson you are, sales is a numbers game.
