Thursday's List

Not really a list..but one really really good thing that happened at work today....
It's been an insanely crazy chaotic week at work with a new software integration that has thrown every single thing out of whack that I do during the day.  There are several extra steps to pretty much every single step that I do during the day....it has been insanely crazy.  As a result I am behind...granted less behind than others but behind nonetheless and it is driving me insane...I just can't get out of my own way..
but today....I had an amazingly wonderful customer who made an amazingly huge purchase that put me ahead of the game on one of my goals for the year.  Literally today this order came through that means that one of the goals that I couldn't figure out how I was going to meet for the year is almost met....for the whole year.  Takes a huge weight off my shoulders and makes me feel pretty good about the whole situation.  I remembered today why i am doing sales...a job I swore I would never do.  I got to meet a need for a customer that I unearthed and actually walked through the sell process to the point that he was eating out of my hand, chomping at the bit to buy this particular product.  Today I actually felt like I was good at my job and not just going through the motions to get caught up.  What an awesome feeling....still a lot of work to do to get caught up and to a place that I am feeling okay about everything and going away for a week...but I am quite happy with myself at the moment.
Hope you all had an awesome day...and a good weekend...I need to go submerge myself in a 10 page paper about international business that's due on Monday!! Hugs!


  1. Wow, that's wonderful to have almost reached your target for the whole year, and it's still only March. That must take the pressure off! I'm happy for you. Try and relax a bit this weekend.

  2. That's so awesome Nic. It's only March so the pressure is off. Of course next year they'll give you higher goals! Everything will fall into place and become second nature as well but I know you know that. I'm so happy for you! Hugs!

  3. Congratulations on the big sale and peace of mind you can have for the rest of this year. All the other stuff will fall in line eventually. Like Thisisme said, relax this weekend, you deserve a break.

  4. wow that's wonderful glad things got a little eaasier for you
