Last night I asked my wife if she needed some help with laying out programming for the next 90 days for her clients. She looked at me pulled up her shirt and said "Do I have an 8 pack? Do you think I need help with programming..." The answer by the way is yes she has an 8 pack.
End of discussion even though I don't agree with how she programs
I have a technique that I teach salespeople called always agree first. A) it drives people absolutely bat shit crazy and B) when you agree with someone it allows them to at least listen to what you are about to say next. In this case I would say You know I agree with you I am Olympic minded
and then I would make my case quickly and be done like Don said.
What we think, or what we know, or what we believe, is in the end, of little consequence. The only thing of consequence is what we do. -John Ruskin
