Time to move your desk?

moving-desk3Before I got into roofing, I had a sales job.

One of the first things I wanted to do there was get myself set up. I figured out that the desk they had assigned me would fit on another wall — and that if I moved the desk, I’d have a nice window view from where I sat.

The sales manager was an old crusty guy who was good at his job. When I told him that I wanted to move my desk he said, “Yeah. Everybody who comes in here always likes to move their desks around. I don’t see what that has to do with getting more sales.”

I didn’t move the desk.

Do you spend your time at work doing revenue-generating activities? Or are you figuring out ways to procrastinate and do busywork?

When it’s time to deal with your business, are you getting down to it? Or are you just moving your desk around?
