Door To Door – Day 97: I Completed The Program! A Summary.

I can’t believe I worked for 4 months in door-to-door sales!

I did it! I completed the program. I did not quit. And in the end, I succeeded.

As my coworker Victor drove me home, I stuck my head out the window and screamed ‘I CAN SELL!’. Adrenaline and excitement coursed through my veins.

Here is a summary of my entire Summer on one excel sheet:

Each row represents one work day. There were 97 work days.

Each colour column represents a habit.

Colour Description Beginning of Summer End of Summer
Blue Did I wake up at 8am? Slept in Consistent sleep schedule
Purple Was I happy? I hated myself and my job I learned to be happy regardless of results
Orange Did I talk to at least 20 people? I couldn’t talk to at least 20 before giving up on myself I talked to less than 20 because I would be too busy with appointments
Light Blue Did I work my absolute hardest and push myself to do more when I feel like giving up? I gave up on a regular basis I enjoyed work enough that ‘working hard’ just felt like talking to people
Green Did I make a sale? Average: 3 sales/month Average: 3 sales/week

It is beautiful to see that not only did the sales improve, also the daily habits and attitudes towards the work.

What I am most proud about is this here:

Over the four months I:

  • Knocked on 1817 doors.
  • Talked to 1201 people at their doorsteps.
  • Delivered 112 presentations sitting inside someone’s home
  • Made 25 sales (9 of those made as a team effort)

This is my greatest career achievement.

I look at these numbers and am proud of myself for what I have done. I do not regret this experience one bit.

I was willing to do what others were not willing to do, in order to gain skills that others do not have.

It was hard as heck but I have something I can look back on every single day and tell myself ‘I’m proud I did that’.

  • I found my ‘why’.
  • I learned valuable skills that will help me in the rest of my career.
  • I have a moment to look back at in my life to always feel proud about.

Thank you for joining me on my long journey. I hope that you were able to live through my experiences by reading my posts. This is one chapter completed, until I’m onto my next grind!
