Change of plans

Today I had been planning to go with another agent (Agent A)  to do some business canvassing in the county seat in eastern Suffolk.  What with a fairly large business community in this city, it should be fertile territory for canvassing.  We also planned to make some residential calls, so I was figuring on a productive day.  Unfortunately, a second agent (Agent B) had asked Agent A the day before I did, and though Agent A and I were expecting him to change his mind, he didn’t.  What this meant is that Agent B got to go instead of me, which is disappointing but fair in that he had asked first.  When we talked in the morning, Agent A said that I could still come along if I wanted, but I declined.  The old line about two’s company, three’s a crowd applies quite well to insurance canvassing.  If three agents call on a business or residence it comes off as too overwhelming and/or pushy and is almost guaranteed to lead to absolutely nothing.  I spent much of the day making residential calls fairly close to home, not many people were around but I dropped off more door hangars.  At this point, all I can reasonably hope is that I’ll set up some activity for the following weeks.

Gym: I did the back and shoulder work I wasn’t able to do yesterday.  Overhead presses: 4 x 8 x 105.  Barbell rows: 4 x 8 x 185.  I also did 20 minutes on the stationary cycle at 18.7 mph.
