Turn offrepparttar computer, hang uprepparttar 117970 phone, shut downrepparttar 117971 fax machine and get outa there! Go for a walk, petrepparttar 117972 dog, find a baby to play with... do ANYTHING that's completely different than having your nose torepparttar 117973 grindstone!

It sounds trite, but a change really IS as good as a rest!

4. Do some innovative thinking. Brainstorm some new, creative ways to jump-start your sales. I remember reading somewhere about a guy that was trying really hard to get an appointment withrepparttar 117974 CEO of a big company and not having any luck. Finally, he bought a cheap pair of shoes, put ONE of them in a box and mailed it torepparttar 117975 CEO with a note that said 'Just trying to get a foot inrepparttar 117976 door.' He got his appointment - AND landedrepparttar 117977 account.

5. Spend some time with someone who loves you 'no matter what.' I know, that sounds pretty 'un-businesslike,' doesn't it? But what better way to reassure yourself that you can't take it personally, and that YOU'RE okay, even if business really stinks right now!

I've tried all of these methods, and every one of them has been successful - after all, I'm still in business!
