If you had known what the past 90 days would bring, what would you have done differently?
We are almost at the 90-day mark of COVID shutting the entire world down. It has impacted businesses, customers, families, and personal lives so drastically. What is different for you, your customers, your business and your family now?
In last week’s blog, we talked about what you CAN do, rather than focusing on what you CAN’T do. As we reflect on the past 90 days and the next 90 days, it is an opportunity for you to align your goals with plans for what you CAN do for sales, business and personal interests!
Some people and organizations have accomplished many things in the past 90 days things, while others have hit the “pause” button.
The reality is that we can’t afford to pause anymore. We need everyone, especially salespeople, to pick up the pace and improve performance to turn this economy around, or the last 90 days of 2020 could be a bloody business bath.
It’s summer, so let’s enjoy the time outdoors to fuel our energy for what we need to do for our business and our customers’ businesses. The past 90 days may have been a pause, but that just means that the next 90 days is all about picking up the pace!The past 90 days may have been on pause, that just means that the next 90 days is all about picking up the pace!

Before you plan the next 90 days, it’s important to reflect on the lessons learned, the insights and the meaning of what this pandemic has brought to us. Find a different place to do this reflection. My favourite place to reflect is near the water – I’m not sure what it is, I just think differently when I get away from my desk. Go for a walk, a drive or, like me, find your own place with a note pad to write down your thoughts and your future 90 day goals.

While many people view the past 90 days as having put a “pause” on the world, we can’t afford to “pause” the world’s economy.
We need strong leaders and salespeople to turn this around. We need to move from “pause” to “pivot” and finally, to “performance.”We need strong leaders and salespeople to turn this around. We need to move from “pause” to “pivot” and finally, to “performance.” Click To Tweet
What will the next 90 days bring? We don’t know the answers or have the crystal ball. But we can develop goals and plans for our business, customers and even ourselves to enjoy the next 3 months of summer.
