Let’s face it, every once in awhile you’re going to have a day so bad you wonder why you even woke up in the morning. A day when everything seems hopeless, when you feel like no matter what you do, you’re still going to fail. In this post, I will tell you how I deal with those days.

The first thing I do is accept the fact that those days are part of being in business and I’m glad to have another one of those days behind me. The more good days I have in a row the more I’m worried because I know a shitty day is right around the corner. But after one has passed I know I have a few good ones coming.

The second and probably most important thing I do is go over my actions. How many phone calls did I make? How many flyers have I given out? How many people did I talk to? If I see my KPI’s have declined I know how to fix it, get back on course. If you numbers are as they should be I know that this day was just an anomaly and tomorrow will make up for it.

After going through those two steps, I load world of warcraft. Join a PVP queue and dot the alliance like there’s no tomorrow. (Only wow junkies will understand this part).
