I recently read, “60 things to do when you turn 60”. There are a number of contributing authors and the book is edited by Ronnie Sellers. If you have a 60th coming up or know someone who does, it is worth a review.

Collection Training

Celebrations may be called for when we turn 60 but it’s not for one of our accounts or an invoice if the terms are 30 days or less. However, when you take the time to use your imagination, you will find that with some ‘spin’ we can apply some of the same tips from the book

  • Be a grouch! – Garrison Keillor tells us that being stubborn and righteously angry will give you staying power.
  • Let it go! – Don’t let unpleasant memories bog you down. A simple release technique.
  • Do unto others…
  • Follow your passions…
  • Set your intention…
  • Keep your sense of humor…
  • Chill out and meditate…
  • Learn new tricks…
  • Get your 100,000 mile tune-up…
  • Discover kaizen – a Japanese word that means “continuous improvement”…
  • Hit the road…

We are not getting any younger is a true statement, but not so for our accounts. Apply some imagination and the right techniques and it will be as if they are drinking from the proverbial fountain of youth.

“In our country, things are different!”

Our organization, our country…even our part of the country…I hear this a lot when I travel and teach programs. Yes, there are differences that need to be taken into consideration. However, we are much more alike then we are different.

Follow the customs or flee the country.
