We want to feel positive but our feelings are too connected to our market business and these are really tough times.
We know this is a period of unusually low consumer demand and you can’t take it personally but .....
Customers are not buying. They are spooked by lots of things - trade wars, recession, and climate fears - this is a global malaise.
And then we make contact with a customer - we engage, parry, joke, discuss, analyse, and deal. They leave happy with their purchase, and like the Toyota ad, we can declare “I’m still feeling it.”
There is nothing like a bit of business to improve the mood.
What is the point of this little collection of thoughts? Sometimes it helps to speak out amongst friends. You might like to do the same.
