In a post titled, “Underrated Ideas on Taking a Break,” I spoke about the importance of refocusing one’s efforts and renewing with confidence in sales. Specifically, my assertion in this article was if one is a salesman, vendor or owner, they shut it down when dealing with their particular industry because of stress. In other words, they never relaxed and refreshed their batteries ever.
Nonsensical Trivia of the Moment
To put it differently, in business, some individuals are so overwrought at the nonsensical trivia of the moment, it overwhelms them. They don’t understand the real nature of what they are trying to accomplish in the first place. More than that, they get confused when contemplating what is frivolity and what is productivity each and every time.

The crux of the issue is that they are stuck in a rut continuously when dealing with stress. They are frustrated as they, (hopefully,) break through with a better outlook in a tough situation.
Breaking the Cycle of Stress
Therefore, here are several measurements of breaking the cycle of stress that may be very helpful for all of you:
Take Hold of Your Calendar
Especially if you are an independent contractor or self-employed, your calendar is your baby 24 hours a day. And, even more, you probably surmise it’s almost too much to bear now and then.
Instead, take control of your calendar now. Be more organized and rigid with an edge on output.
To demonstrate, when I was an agent for a well-known insurance company, I was meticulous of my agenda all the time on what I was generating. In particular, I:
- Maintained five appointments with specific times Monday through Thursday
- Made phone calls and followed up from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
- Ate lunch and relaxed for an hour around noon and
- Did all of my paperwork on Friday to clean up for the entire week
In this way, I was sharp all of the time with no hesitation or waffling on what to do next. Resolve and confident were my mottoes.
You, too, can organize your structure anyway that would be appropriate to your needs. The end result, of course, is to have a rhythm that you can used time, and time again to be more productive and less distraught.
Charity Begins Here
As you know, most people in the entrepreneurial pursuits are extremely busy 99.9% of the time. However, as always, for your peace of mind and a higher goal, volunteering is one of the great structural relievers you can do.
For this reason, volunteering your time to accelerate your enthusiasm is a plus. Not only would you enjoy the activity that you have selected, but, once you know your colleagues in your organization, it may be a great networking aspect to eventual sales.
What makes you happy? What is your passion?
Future Leaders by Mentoring
Ultimately, one of the greatest gifts that you can possibly do is mentor future leaders in your field. Especially if your knowledge base is vast and wide, then teach the younger people your expertise. Similarly, your desire to create a legacy will come true for years to come. The stress level will ease very quickly by coaching the new class of captains. As a result, you will appreciate your “art” as both magnanimous and gratifying, too.
Re-examine Your Potential
In conclusion, worrying won’t help you one iota if you are not willing to re-examine your potential. In this way, you will acknowledge the success of your goals and your perspective for the better. Calm down and act…
