Purpose-Driven Productivity in Sales #workWithWonder

I finally told myself ENOUGH.

Enough, of this mundane trap where we feel like hamsters running tirelessly without going nowhere. Enough, of settling for "effort counts" without having significant, and tangible results. Enough, of wondering how I could "have been" better. Enough, of the perplexing days where feeling "lost and choked" is accepted as a norm. Enough, of just "getting by"

Enough, of doing the same things over and over.
Enough, doing things on my own - without the Lord being heavily involved

The "daily grind" and lack thereof, clouded my mind to the point that I thought night time prayers were enough. BUT IT ISN'T. Relationships aren't built on just one message a day, or a one-sided phone call! Two-way communication is the most basic, even for friendships and work relationships.

I am at fault for not allowing Him to speak to me, and not really paying attention when He does.

So this is my attempt to begin again, to try again, but this time with GOD. And I always start by rediscovering my purpose, through Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Life. I went through the 40-Day journey several times now in the past 6 years! And no matter what "phase" I was in, it has never failed.

This time, the phase is about WORK. I used to love work when I was in Marketing. I could literally do lunch and dinner events everyday and talk and talk and talk to small and big groups! But painful things happened two years ago, and then I was moved to Sales last year.

Sure, we all have our WHY - being our families and aspirations and even bucket lists. We all know the WHAT, - being our targets in all facets of the business from new sales, retention, churn and relationship management. But we're all mixed up with the HOW's of it. While the veterans have proven and tested styles, new comers like me can easily fall off the vine without roots! It's been officially a year since the move, and nothing I've been doing is really working! There has to be a system, there has to be a standard, there has to be a blueprint.

My first step is to wake up at 530AM everyday, read the day's chapter of the Purpose Driven Life book while blogging about reflections and realizations, and get ready for work!

My Goal is to #workWithWonder , where a new day begins with excitement and ends with fulfillment. My "how", is through Purpose-Driven Productivity in the role I was blessed with - a Sr. Relationship Manager for Enterprise Sales.

PS : In my past 40-Day Journeys, I wrote my notes, thoughts and prayers in journals. This time I'll mark it here in this blog, where a big part of my passion is, so I can share the journey, and not just the destination when I get there.

Hopefully, whether or not you're in Sales too, you'd somehow find a thing or two in this series that would nudge you to #workWithWonder :) Please pray for me <3 I'll be praying for you too!

Let's do this!!!!!

Hey, I'd love to know your thoughts :)

The Wonder Human

To be human has its complexities and frailties. It almost feels natural to succumb to life's struggles and disarray, that we tend to forget how God has made us to be filled with wonder. . . and this blog aims to create vivid reminders of what we should never lose, what we should continually celebrate, what we should seek, in every musing, experience, milestone, chapter, and blessing. More about me HERE


Psalms 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Job 5:9 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.

Psalm 71:17 Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.
