Driving in circles

One would think that spending several hours driving around the eastern part of Suffolk County calling on lapsed policyholders would yield something. Right?  Try “wrong” instead.  It was a complete exercise in frustration, not resulting in any appointments let alone sales.  To some extent I was driving in circles, for example passing one landmark (two pedestal-mounted military jets near a former aircraft factory in Calverton) three times.  Frustrating days like this are to be expected in the insurance industry, of course, and one day’s  lack of results has no bearing on the next day.  If I don’t make any sales tomorrow, there is one relatively small sale that might come through if the stars align correctly, I will finish this week with about one-third of the income I earned last week.  That may sound dreadful, but keep in mind that last week was nothing short of spectacular.  If I can consistently make what I will have made this week, I will be earning a decent if unspectacular middle-class living.  That’s tolerable. 

Some other things intervened, so no gym tonight.
