📅 30th July 2022 | Selling
The summer of 2022 in the UK will be remembered for two things. One is the lovely, and occasionally overbearing, sunshine. The other being the excoriation and general hounding in the media of Prime Minister Boris Johnson. I need not here dilate on the in’s and out’s of all the PM’s alleged wrongdoings, that will roll on for some time to come in various publications. And I’m certain there will be a film produced about Bojo in the not too distant future.
One of the most considered and thought-provoking interviews about our current beleagured PM was with Lord Finkelstein or @Dannythefink as he is know on Twitter. It was broadcast on Times Radio. Danny explained how very difficult the job of Prime Minster actually is. He indicated that the Prime Minister has to be “on it” each and every day – and this bit made me sit up – he described being “on it” as ‘onitism‘. One wonders whether this will make the OED (Oxford English Dictionary) as one of the words of 2022?
I can think of no better term to also describe those who are at the coal-face of sales each and every day. We all know that the work day of the successful salesperson never really stops. Even when there are no face-to-face sales visits, you’re researching your clients business, thinking through problems and issues or writing proposals. In sales one is always at it, or on it – are you?
