Huge O.T.D. Outbreak Reported in North America!

By Joe Verde

Every­one in sales, man­age­ment and even deal­ers, please be aware of yet anoth­er out­break of O.T.D. [Old Timers Dis­ease] in North Amer­i­ca.

Descrip­tion: O.T.D. is a high­ly con­ta­gious dis­ease that affects thou­sands of sales­peo­ple, man­agers and deal­ers. This tox­ic dis­ease dras­ti­cal­ly low­ers the afflict­ed person’s abil­i­ty and per­for­mance by caus­ing a break­down of their log­ic func­tions of the brain which destroys enthu­si­asm and con­fi­dence. This break­down erodes the person’s abil­i­ty to make ratio­nal and intel­li­gent sales, sales man­age­ment, and career deci­sions.

This break­down results in con­sis­tent­ly irra­tional deci­sions and the neg­a­tive fall­out results in even fur­ther decay in thought process­es. The com­bi­na­tion of the dis­ease and these poor deci­sions results in the destruc­tion of an individual’s self-esteem, skill lev­els and their chances for future suc­cess.

How is it Trans­mit­ted? It was once thought the neg­a­tives that cause this dis­ease would go in one ear and all of
the neg­a­tive would come out the oth­er ear with no brain dam­age. It has since been proven that this dis­ease can
be trans­mit­ted by even minor con­tact with an infect­ed per­son through con­ver­sa­tions, body lan­guage and even
through visu­al con­tact from over hun­dreds of feet away.

Treat­ment of the Dis­ease: Prop­er treat­ment and improve­ment will depend on the pro­gres­sion of the dis­ease:

  •  Stage 1
    At this point, a per­son hears the neg­a­tives from oth­ers but does not believe, “There’s noth­ing that can be done.” Treat­ment: Stay­ing at least 20 paces from neg­a­tive sales­peo­ple (and man­agers) will cure Stage 1, espe­cial­ly as sales increase.
  •  Stage 2
    Unfor­tu­nate­ly at this stage, a per­son believes that sales and suc­cess in the car busi­ness are com­plete­ly out of their con­trol because of the mar­ket, weath­er, econ­o­my, etc. and that there’s noth­ing at all they can do about it. They’re on a down­ward slide in their pro­fes­sion.
  •  Stage 3
    No known cure for Stage 3. Rec­om­men­da­tion: Remove them imme­di­ate­ly from the deal­er­ship to pre­vent fur­ther infec­tion.
