stop reading

Phil Macko, SVP of Sales for Megatrax

I like to stay abreast of current events, so my morning routine always includes coffee and the morning news. After reading the doom and gloom financial news of the past three days I considered my options: jump off the nearest bridge, find the one country whose economy isn’t reported to be collapsing and apply for citizenship there – or simply stop reading the news for a few days.

I opted to stop reading.

Reinhold Niebuhr correctly said, “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” He was right. I cannot change today’s economic situation, but as first a consumer and next a businessman I can impact tomorrow. Granted, it is much easier to pour milk on the floor and then cry over it, even though you are not supposed to. That does no good.

I am just one consumer, but I have a circle of friends – together we make a consumer group. I am just one businessman, but together with my reps we make a team – a team interacts with 1,000s of businesses a month.  I interact directly with 30 to 50 people per month, and indirectly (via my team) with 1,000s. If I don’t dwell on what is happening, but instead focus on what can be done about it, will it cause a ripple effect across my interaction group?

It is time to find out…
