Elaine and I arrived in Portsmouth, NH about and hour before our dinner reservations on Saturday, so we poked around in few of the shops on Market Street. One of them had knick knack kinda things with quotes written on them. One of the quotes struck me as ‘interesting’, so I took a picture of it to remind me to think about it. It’s credited to Ambrose Gwinett Bierce an American Journalist who lived from 1842 to 1914. Here’s the quote.
“An egotist is a person of low taste – more interested in himself than in me.”
Think about all the applications. Think about the entrepreneur who’s idea is so awesome, that he believes that all he has to do is tell his prospect how great it is.
Think about the salesperson that asks one “pain” question then starts his 55 minute presentation of features and benefits.
Think about all the salespeople that you know that think it’s their job to tell their prospects what the compelling reasons are.
Funny, what you think about while you’re waiting to eat.
