Life'll Kill You - And Then You'll Be Dead

The late, great, singer-songwriter Warren Zevon sang a lot of about death during his amazing 25+ year career.  Ironically enough, he died in 2003 from a rare form of lung cancer that coal miners get (even though he never worked a day in a coal mine).  In one of his famous tunes, he sang, "Life'll Kill You...And Then You'll Be Dead..."

Zevon sang about the fact that we're here and we've got about 650 hours of life in our entire life-span.  Use it wisely.  He also said, "Enjoy Every Sandwich."  I think what Mr. Zevon wanted us to know is that we must seize every moment and nobody escapes the inevitable.  "Some get to die in their sleep, some get the knife, some get the gun..."

In our sales life as salespeople, we must seize every moment and live our professional life to the fullest.  We must make every sales moment count and we must enjoy every moment.  Don't squander the important life moments.  During the hustle-bustle of blocking and tackling sales situation, just remember that, sooner or later, we'll all face a time when we're not here anymore.  Enjoy Every Sandwich.  Have fun.

Enjoy your life.  Live it to the fullest.  Life is a mysterious, exciting time and 650 hours goes by in a blink-of-an-eye.
