    I've had a whacked out day. I'm in sales...high stakes- big numbers
    all I can do is sit and wait to see if the corporate board approves it

    what do you do to kick back to keep from going insane

    Someone's trying to not smoke...
    i enjoy some Peruvian marching powder. Surely going to assist in the anxiety and non smoking.

    I'm not in sales, but I work with a bunch of them. They are all gamblers. Serious gamblers- maybe gambling triggers the same little switch in a personality that is naturally sales-y. Are you perchance, a degenerate gambler?

    no, which is probably why I freak out a little over some sales....
    I don't lose anything if the sale drops aside from pride and a paycheck, a big one

    it's all the same release of those "feel good" endorphins from gambling, sex, buying stuff, hard drugs, etc.
    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    My wife was the office manager at a car dealership for a while. We live in a small to medium sized community 80-100 thou. people. It amazed me how many of the salesmen went in circles from one dealer to another, Ford, to toyota to chevy to honda, etc every couple of years. Also almost all of them had some type of substance abuse problem. Its stressful trying to pimp your particular widget over someone elses especially when its commission based. Its win or go home empty handed. Sort of a digression here but the thread remined me of it.

    I was In sales before I went into business for myself. I am really odd though I can pitch something, give a proposal then sit back work on the next one and if it doesn't go through 99% of the time I didn't care at all. My mentality is the do the right thing and the money will follow. I was top 2-3 worldwide my entire career for an international company that sold wood working tools. Nobody could believe the amount of equipment I would move. At our big shows most guys would sell 20-80k depending on how good they were I averaged 250k...
    I'll get there or Die trying...

    Xanax. Reduces the anxiety and stress like nobody's business. The best part is you only take one when you need it, not every day.
