intense short term goal to distract from negative news

With all the sad news about what might or might not happen, how do I focus on the simple task of what's next? I'm in sales.  I won't sell more by worrying about what might happen.  

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.
