Do you have a large short term goal, but you just
don't have the proper motivation? Try the "payoff bank".
For example, over a 4 week period for every customer you contact, put a quarter
in a jar. For every home demonstration you schedule (or sale you make)
put $1.00 in a jar. At the end of the 4 weeks your "bank" will reflect the fruits
of your efforts and use can use this "reward" for whatever you like: a manicure,
a dinner out with your spouse, a new phone headset. Adjust the amounts
and qualifying criteria to fit your business and schedule.
