I'm in sales and am having a bad sales week. It started with a face-to-face meeting two days ago with a potential new client I assumed loved my offering. So I spoke too much, listened too little -- and by the time I caught the cues, time ran out to close a sale. Every week can't be great, but bad ones are built on reasons. So I looked for some in the mirror. After erasing "you suck" graffiti that didn't come off easily, I found my answers and thought sharing them here might do some good.
