DECOMPRESS

M. Hi. I need to decompress.

C. Go for it.

M. I'm frustrated that I haven't heard back from RK or PL.

C. Go on

M. RK told me they wanted to make a decision in a couple of weeks. That was close to a month ago. Plus, he said he'd get back to me after he spoke with PL, which he said was happening on Tuesday. I have not heard back from him. Plus, I sent Paul a very friendly email telling him that RK said he was going to speak with him and I included the email I sent to RK complimenting PL. Said it would be great if we had a chance to work together. Never heard back from him. That's BS.

C. Go on

M. I'm also frustrated with DT and company. Enough already!

C. Okay if I ask you a few questions?

M. Sure

C. You have some good news on the ST front, right?

M. Go on

C. Well you have two new projects, right?

M. Yes, that's true

C. And that's good news, right?

M. It is

C. Plus, two new leads came in this week, right?

M. That's true. One from RS and another from DG.

C. Plus, SM is also a winnable opportunity, right?

M. Yes, it is.

C. So, it's not all doom and gloom, right?

M. I suppose

C. Plus you're getting paid by AR, right?

M. True

C. Plus, there is a lot of excitement at ST about PM, right?

M. That's also true

C. The news about KFS is encouraging, right?

M. It is

C. In some ways you can now say you have a team selling PM to LAs, right?

M. That's a good point.

C. In fact, they're building a whole program around PM, right?

M. I hadn't though about it that way

C. Was this helpful?

M. Definitely. I'm now feeling more optimistic. Thanks!

C. You got it. Talk later.

DECOMPRESS

M. Need to decompress

C. Let's hear it

M. Just finished having a meeting with SM and didn't get the outcome I wanted.

C. Listen, I understand why you might be upset. So, good to get this off your chest rather than stew on it.

M. Yeah, I needed to get this out of my system.

C. Can I ask you a few questions?

M. Sure

C. If I'm not mistaken, there's an opportunity for PM, right?

M. There is. They have well-defined ___ which lends itself to being ___.

C. Listen. I know you and you have a tendency to awful-ize, fair?

M. I suppose

C. Get it out of your system

M. Ok. I'm pissed that I made it seem so complex.

C. Here's my take.

M. Okay

C. This turned out to be a learning conversation, right?

M. That's true.

C. I know you're angry, but don't lose sight of the fact that you also have a number of other NEW opportunities, right?

M. Right

C. First, SM is now a PM opportunity. You can close this deal. The overall opportunity is still open.

M. These are very good points. SM and I just sent a follow-up. We actually created two opportunities.

C. Glad to hear. Was this helpful?

M. Absolutely. It helped me put things in perspective and prompted me to take action.

C. Great to hear. Take care.

M. You too.

DECOMPRESS

M. Need to decompress

C. Go for it. Get it out of your system

M. I'm pissed that f段ng G didn't respond to my Merry Christmas text and that he left me hanging. F him! I'm going to blow him off this week

C. Good idea to take a mini-break. Go on

M. I'm pissed that it's taking SF so f段ng long to get PM approved and I'm passed that it took M so f段ng long to get PM out

C. What else?

M. I'm pissed at f段ng P. The m**** f**** didn't respond to my email and he put me in a tough situation by leaving me hanging the day of a key meeting.

C. Want some advice on these before we move on?

M. Sure

C. Regarding the G situation, blow him off this week and use this as motivation to keep pressing. Out work him.

M. Okay, good advice

C. Regarding the SF, my advice is that you use the time to have the site ready to rock and roll, the instant the site is up

M. Go on

C. Specifically, update the content and add it to the site and also do the research.

M. Okay

C. What else?

M. I'm feeling discombobulated and overwhelmed.

C. Go on

M. I feel like I have so much to do but scared to do the stuff

C. I can understand why you might feel anxious. However, look at the value of the tasks and projects you're working on once completed.

M. What do you mean?

C. For instance, once you complete the D+D you'll have a great PB because you'll leverage lessons learned plus the training you're going through. This helps you plus it enables you to create an even more effective system.

M. That's true

C. Also completing the EB gives you a valuable tool you can use for LG.

M. That's also true

C. Plus, creating the launch training deck for DJ is something you can use over and over including for AR.

M. Okay

C. Once you have this stuff done, they're done and you can turn your attention to BD, which is where you want to be. Make sense?

M. It does. Thank you. I now have more clarity on what needs to get done and the motivation to do it. Today I'm working on scriptwriting.

C. Excellent. Was this helpful?

M. Very! Thanks again

C. You got it. Talk later.

DECOMPRESS

M. Hi, I want to talk about my health

C. Okay

M. I've put on 15 pounds over the last month or so. I totally pigged out during Thanksgiving and Christmas. I loaded up on carbs. Are lots of mac and cheese, stuffing and mashed potatoes. Also, ate lots of desserts. The other big issue I have is that I'm late-night snacking on carbs like chips.

C. Go on

M. I also have not worked out in probably two months, maybe even longer, and I've stopped taking vitamins. I'm also not drinking a lot of water.

C. Go on

M. I know what I'm supposed to do but have made excuses not to do it.

C. What's your excuse?

M. I've been telling myself that I'll start taking care of myself when I have more financial stability. It's almost like I'm justifying eating comfort food because it helps me deal with stress just like any other anxiety medication.

C. Interesting. First of all, you're not alone, especially during these crazy times.

M. Okay

C. Can I ask you a few questions?

M. Sure

C. First, do you think it's possible for you start taking better care of yourself starting today?

M. It's possible but hard, especially because I don't have an accountability partner.

C. Okay, but is it possible to take a step even if it's a small one?

M. Sure

C. Let's talk about some possible small steps

M. Okay

C. Let's consider some possibilities during the day

DAYTIME
- Eat low carb
- Drink 30 ounces of water
- Walk around the block
- Do 20 dumbell curls with light weights
- Take your multivitamin

EVENING
- Make a vegetable soup using chicken broth
- Have plain coconut yogurt
- Meditate and do deep-breathing
- Come back here at 7pm to check-in. I'll be your accountability partner.

Does this sound doable?

M. Yes

C. Okay. Go for it and don't forget to come back here to check-in at 7. Set an alert or alarm to remind you, okay?

M. Good idea

C. Was this helpful?

M. Yes, very

C. Great. See you at 7.

M. Will do.

CHECKING IN

M. Okay. Checking in.

C. How did it go?

M. I did a good job dietwise.

C. Tell me about it

M. Had a healthy salad for lunch and a tasty Keto spaghetti dinner.

C. Good. Here's what I would like you to do.. Do deep breathing and drink water. Finish the bottle. If you get hungry later, pray and do deep breathing. Have some broth and low carb yogurt. Okay?

M. Okay. Thanks.

C. Helpful to check in?

M. Definitely.

C. Okay. Be strong. You can do it.

M. Will do

DECOMPRESS

M. Hi. Need to decompress.

C. Let's hear it. Just vent.

M. Okay. I'm frustrated about the SL situation. Pissed me off about the late notice. I paid on 12-31. Just frustrated about my whole commercial situation.

C. Go on

M. I'm f段ng pissed off that f*** SF didn't approve PM and when we asked to meet they scheduled it for February. That's so f*** up.

C. So whats the next step?

M. We sent our contact an email explaining that we followed their guidance and needed clarification and requested she arrange a meeting next week instead of a month from now. I told her that we can't afford to wait a month. It's been a very frustrating experience working with them.

C. I can understand why this would bother you. Fortunately, you're in good hands with M and M.

M. That's true. I did feel better when I read the email from M. He said that we did everything we were supposed to do and just needed clarification. Gave me the impression that it's a problem that can be resolved once we speak with them.

C. The good news is that Man knows his stuff.

M. That is a relief

C. What else?

M. Well I'm worried about the situation.

C. Go on

M. The SL situation is coming up this week.

C. Let me make a suggestion and let's look at this from a different perspective.

M. Okay.

C. It's not all doom and gloom

M. Go on

C. You're due to get paid for the first SPD project this month and you have another SPD project that also kicks off this month.

M. That's true

C. And you got paid for HL and AR so between HL, AR, and the two SPD projects you'll have enough to cover the majority of PM development and still have a good balance. Plus, you have three or more utterly feasible opportunities in January.

M. This is super helpful. I feel so much better. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

C. You got it. Now what I need from you is to focus on your projects. Get **** done. You've been making great progress. Keep after it. Don't let up. Outwork everybody.

M. You got it. Thanks again!

C. Feel better?

M. Definitely!

C. Great. Talk later.

DECOMPRESS

M. Need to decompress

C. Go for it. Get it out

M. I'm furious

C. Why is that?

M. First of all, I'm pissed that PM is still not approved. It's been something like six f*** months. It's so frustrating. It's very irritating for SF to have told us they couldn't respond until a month from now. I'm also pissed at M and M. They should have figured this **** a long time ago.

C. I can understand why you would be upset about this especially when you get notified on New Year's Eve.

M. Exactly

C. I'm sure it was also frustrating for you when M said they'd get to it after the break.

M. Yes, it was. I understand it was a holiday but having to wait 3 days to get any idea about what would happen next feels like an eternity. My initial reaction was that we would have to wait until Feb 4 to even get an answer so was under the impression that we would go a month without being able to work on PM which made me feel like it wouldn't be until March that we壇 get PM out. Unbelievable!

C. You emailed A on Friday, so reasonable to expect she'll get back to you tomorrow. You were clear on how important this was.

M. I was

C. I know the timing sucks because you wanted a quick response from SF but it's a fixable problem and M&M have the ability to fix it. You have your email scheduled to go out in the morning.

M. Okay

C. What else?

M. Well, I now have to deal with the SP issue.

C. Go on

M. It comes down to having f*** to start covering the p***.

C. Well, fortunately, you have f*** now and opportunity for more f*** the next couple of months.

M. Go on

C. Summary: AR + HL + FB cover the rest of the PM payment which brings you back up to 40.

M. Good point

C. And you have at least 3-4 other opportunities in January

M. Go on

C. Summary: SP + I3 + HY + other ST pb opps + FU + CENT

M. Go on

C. These are real opps, right?

M. Yes, they are.

C. Want some advice?

M. Yes

C. Continue to work on the pb. You did a great job today. You put in straight 6 hours on a Sunday. That's an excellent effort. Love your intensity and dedication and effort. You made great progress. Get up early again tomorrow and stay after it. Work on running the complete meeting. I like the new graphic you created. Great model and a perfect way to tell the SPM story. Also love the idea of using the IMPROVEMENT to assess needs.

M. Thanks

C. My take is that this will have a significant impact on your ability to have great things happen consistently.

M. Thanks. I do feel good about it.

C. Make sure review the demo as part of the rehearsal.

M. Will do

C. Great. Was this helpful?

M. Big time!!

C. Excellent. Talk later.

DECOMPRESS

M. Need to vent

C. Go for it

M. I'm pissed that f**** M has not responded to my email. More importantly, I'm pissed that PM is delayed because they f壇 up a number of times, which has caused us precious time. The net of it is that the project is way over budget and way over time. I'm pissed because I have no leverage. In fact, he can in essence hold PM 塗ostage. He's done it before. Plus, he hasn't gotten back to me regarding HL. This is so f壇 up. They have completely mismanaged the project.

C. Want my advice?

M. Absolutely

C. Speak with V to find out what would be involved to transition PM to them. Mention your concerns to see how they would handle them.

M. Okay. What should I focus on next?

C. I would prep for the meeting with DJ and start working on the I3 document.

M. Okay. Thanks. I needed to vent, so this was helpful

C. Great. Talk later.

DECOMPRESS

M. Need to vent

C. Go for it

M. I'm so f段ng pissed at M. They keep f段ng up. They made another mistake. This project started in August and was supposed to be done by end of October. It's end of January and we have no insight into when PM will be complete. WAY over budget and WAY over time. He doesn't give a crap on when it's done.

C. Let me ask a few questions

M. Okay

C. Is there ANYTHING positive about this?

M. Well, it seems like there was only one small issue that needed to be addressed, so there's a strong possibility that PM will be approved by the end of January. There is still work to do, which I'm guessing will take a couple of weeks. This puts us at around mid to late February. And the new PM will rock. It's already outstanding.

C. So you likely will get the I3 project, which will give you some income, right?

M. Yep, that's right.

C. This is an important point, D. Because this buys you time. Play this out with me.

M. Okay

C. Assume that PM is fully available to show on Feb 28. You have funds to last you through then and still make the WR payment, right?

M. That's true

C. Do me a favor and say: I have enough funds and more is coming to bridge me through the next 3-4 months, which buys me plenty of time to start actively building pipeline. Plus, there are a few other opportunities in play.

M. Okay

C. Now take a deep breath

M. Okay

C. Now put your foot on his fing throat. Amp up your intensity to create opps. Start your program tomorrow. No more excuses. Enough is enough! You've done incredible work. The SED is outstanding! Go work on this some more. Just nail it. Then work on NPS and just nail it. Do these two things well today plus tidy up the house, okay?

M. You got it

C. Was this helpful?

M. Definitely

C. Great. Talk later.
