"Call people you love - and tell them you love them.

Love is not motivation. Love is inspiration. To be your best, you must go beyond motivation - to inspiration."

- Jeffrey Gittomer's Little Red Book of Sales Answers

I picked up this book today while browsing the computer books at Chapter's. It was sitting on a chair. Random luck or fate?

Anyway, I need to work on my marketing skills - I have none. My problem is that I say something once and expect people to respond thoughtfully and rationally.

The book seems to be chock full of little gems like the one above. It is light on prose and focuses on being direct and succinct.

Hmn... I would say: love is more than inspiration, it's ACTION. :)

I suspect he means that love should inspire to action rather than be the object of your motivation.

But ... whatever ... I thought it was a good quote and made a nice entry title. I didn't think too deeply about it.
