“Professionals Sort, Amateurs Convince”


Quote in the picture:  Being defeated is often a temporary condition.  Giving up is what makes it permanent.  – Marilyn Vos Savant

While the above picture isn’t totally relevant to our topic here, I felt you, as one of these professionals, would enjoy it anyhow!  🙂

By the way, in case you didn’t know, Marilyn Vos Savant, is one of the most intelligent people on the planet.  She has one of the highest IQ scores (top five, I believe) ever recorded.

Anyhow, so “professionals sort, amateurs convince”.  

What does that mean, exactly.

Well, it’s real simple.    Amateurs spend elongated periods of time on the phone or in IM chats with people whom are sending them every signal in the world (or even directly saying “no”) that they’re not interested in joining them.

Professionals take that hint or straight-forward, respectful “no” and MOVE ON.

Sure, you could spend another hour, or even 30 minutes longer with this person, and you might convince them to join you.    They could even bring in 100+ people and  you would come back to me and say, “See?  That was time well spent”?   But, that could have easily gone the other way, too, and 9 times out of 10 it IS going to go the other way, and you wasted an hour out of your day.

Professionals sort through people who are acting disinterested or ambiguous.  Your time as one of these professionals is too valuable to be spending too much time with people like this.  Go to one of the other 7 billion “fish in the sea”.

What are your thoughts on this?   Please leave a comment (feel free to leave a link to your website in a small signature line under your relevant comment), and be a PROFESSIONAL and share this article with a friend or two.  😉

God bless you.
