My solution is to attempt a mighty effort that will distract me from idle wondering about bad news. Since I'm in sales, I believe that the more people I talk to the more chances to sell something I will discover -- shots on goal idea.
I'm setting a goal of 100 face-to-face visits for April. Starting today.
I'll post the struggle to meet this goal. In my line of business, this is a large number. I visit hospitals for a living, and I attempt to help them envision a better IT infrastructure.
