|Get Down and Dirty...|
For me, this is what getting back to basics really means. It seems to be the catch cry of the moment. Go back to basics! For me, this is letting go of ego and pride and simply doing what ever it takes. Whether that means burning the midnight oil or working on a weekend. Or it may be enveloping your own letters, doing your own data entry or god forbid, following clients up.
I heard a wonderful story recently, of a top performing sales person, who 12 months ago was earning a million a year. Now that things aren't flowing in so easily, she has gone back to delivering her own letter box leaflets. So, as my brother in law woud say, 'harden up' and go get your hands dirty. It's referred to as 'back to basics' as it's doing all the things you had to do in the beginning. A truly humbling experience which as the picture shows can be quite fun.
