December - Green Sales Sheet

Mood follows form.

To create well I have to be in a good mood, happy and cool. —Marc Newson, Entrepreneur

When you feel in winning form, you smile, stand up straight, and walk with confidence. On a gloomy, depressing day, try this: smile, stretch, and strut. Your mood will begin to lighten as your physical actions mimic those of a winner. The same applies to your phone personality. If you sit up straight and smile, you begin to feel self-confident and purposeful. Your voice reflects those qualities, and you will enjoy more successful business conversations.

Expand your vocabulary.

One forgets words as one forgets names. One’s vocabulary needs constant fertilizing or it will die. - Evelyn Waugh, Author

There is a proven relationship between vocabulary and income. Most successful people have good vocabularies and can express their ideas clearly. Less successful people tend to rely on a limited vocabulary augmented with clichés to get their ideas across. You are taken far more seriously when you can express yourself articulately. Clear and precise language gains you respect and credibility.

Don’t bother to learn words that are never used in everyday conversation. The fact that you know the meaning of popinjay is not of any value. However, learning one new word a day is money in the bank.

My book makes a great Christmas gift for any business professional. Excerpted from Rules of the Hunt. Available at Amazon.
