Salesmanship



Young Brad from the country applied for a salesman's job at a city
department store. It was one of those massive stores that sells
just about everything.
The boss asked him, "Have you ever worked in sales before?" "Yes, I
was a salesman in my home town," said Brad. The boss liked him
instantly and said, "I'll give you a trial day here at the store,
start tomorrow, and I'll come and see you after closing time to see
how you went."
When the boss met up with young Brad the next day at closing time,
he saw him shaking hands with a beaming customer. After they
parted, the boss walked over and asked, "Well, that looked good!
How many sales did you make today?" "That was the only one," said
the young salesman. "Only one!?!" blurted the boss. "Most of my
staff make 20 or 30 sales a day. You'll have to do better than
that! Well, how much was the sale worth?"
"Three hundred sixty five thousand, four hundred fifty two
dollars," said young Brad. The boss stopped, truly stunned now .
"Uhm, how did you manage that?!?" "Well, when he came in this
morning and I sold him a small fish hook. Then, I sold him a medium
hook, and then a really large hook. Then I sold him a small fishing
line, a medium one, and then a big one. I then sold him a spear
gun, a wetsuit, scuba gear, nets, chum, coolers, and a keg of beer.
I asked him where he was going fishing and he said up the coast. We
decided he would probably need a new boat, so I took him down to
the boat department and sold him that twenty-foot schooner with the
twin engines.
Then, he said that his old bomb car probably wouldn't be able to
pull it, so I took him to the car department and sold him the new
Deluxe Cruiser, with a winch, storage rack, seat heating, and a
built-in TV. Oh, and cup holders."
The boss took two steps back and asked in astonishment, "You sold
all that to a guy who came in for a fish hook?!"
"No," answered the salesman. "He came in to buy a blanket."
"A blanket?"
"Yeah, an extra blanket for the couch. He just had a fight with his
wife and was sleeping on the couch. I said to him, 'Well, your
weekend's ruined, so you might as well go fishing...'"




Now that's a good sales person...

Lesson from the goose


Lessons from goose

As each goose flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird behind it. By flying in a V-formation, the whole flock adds 71 percent more flying range than if each bird flew alone.

Lesson: People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going quicker and easier when they are traveling on the thrust of one another.

2. When a goose gets sick, wounded, or shot down, two geese drop out of formation and follow it down. They stay with the goose to help and protect it until it is able to fly again or dies. Then they launch out with another formation to catch up with the flock.

Lesson: If we have as much sense as geese, we will stand by each other.

3. Whenever a goose falls out of the formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to fly alone and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front.

Lesson: If we have as much sense as a goose, we will stay in formation with those who are headed where we want to go.

4. When the lead goose gets tired, it rotates back into the formation and another goose flies at the point position.

Lesson: It pays to take turns doing the hard tasks and sharing leadership.

5. The geese in formation honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.

Lesson: We need to make sure our honking from behind is encouraging- -not something less than helpful. This is Rex Barker, reminding you that there are constant lessons and reminders for us both as individuals and as humanity. It is up to us to learn from them and grow.

That is intelligence


That’s intelligence

A recent Italian immigrant comes to New York and wants a job. However, the foreman at the job site won't hire him until he passes a little math test.

"Here's your first question," the foreman says. "Without using numbers, represent the number 9." "Without numbers?" the Italian says, "Dat is easy." And he proceeds to draw three trees.

"What's this?" the boss asks. "Ave you got no brain? Tree and tree and tree make nine," says the Italian.

"Fair enough," says the boss. "Here's your second question. Use the same rules, but this time the number is 99." The Italian stares into space for a while, then picks up the picture that he has just drawn and makes a smudge on each tree. "Ere you go."

The boss scratches his head and says, "How on earth do you get that to represent 99?" "Each of da trees is dirty now. So, it's dirty tree, and dirty tree, and dirty tree. Dat is 99."

"All right, last question. Same rules again, but represent the number 100." The Italian man stares into space some more, then he picks up the picture again and makes a little mark at the base of each tree and says, "Ere you go. One hundred."

The boss looks at the attempt. "You must be nuts if you think that represents a hundred!" The Italian leans forward and points to the marks at the base of each tree and says, "A little dog came along and poop by each tree. So now you got dirty tree and a turd, dirty tree and a turd, and dirty tree and a turd, dat make one hundred.

So, when I start?"

The China Farmer

The China Farmer
Once upon a time, there was a farmer in the central region of China. He didn't have a lot of money and, instead of a tractor; he used an old horse to plow his field.
One afternoon, while working in the field, the horse dropped dead. Everyone in the village said, "Oh, what a horrible thing to happen." The farmer said simply, "We'll see." He was so at peace and so calm, that everyone in the village got together and, admiring his attitude, gave him a new horse as a gift.
Everyone's reaction now was, "What a lucky man." And the farmer said, "We'll see."
A couple days later, the new horse jumped a fence and ran away. Everyone in the village shook their heads and said, "What a poor fellow!"
The farmer smiled and said, "We'll see."
Eventually, the horse found his way home, and everyone again said, "What a fortunate man."
The farmer said, "We'll see."
Later in the year, the farmer's young boy went out riding on the horse and fell and broke his leg. Everyone in the village said, "What a shame for the poor boy."
The farmer said, "We'll see."
Two days later, the army came into the village to draft new recruits. When they saw that the farmer's son had a broken leg, they decided not to recruit him.
Everyone said, "What a fortunate young man."
The farmer smiled again - and said, "We'll see."
Moral of the story:
There's no use in overreacting to the events and circumstances of our everyday lives. Many times what looks like a setback, may actually be a gift in disguise. And when our hearts are in the right place, all events and circumstances are gifts that we can learn valuable lessons from.
As Fra Giovanni once said:
"Everything we call a trial, a sorrow, or a duty, believe me... the gift is there and the wonder of an overshadowing presence."

4 liners

My heart is the station of love,
A brain of grief runs through,
The quick beats are the telegraph,
The message is, “I love you”.

I will not say I do not love you,
For that would not be true,
But I will say that I love a boy,
And that dear boy is you.

I’ll meet you in the park
And I’ll kiss you in the dark.

Courting is a pleasure,
Loving is a grief,
A false hearted lover,
Is worse than a thief.
