You probably know the story of the new sales manager who asked the exiting sales manager if he had any advice for him. The exiting sales manager said, "Yes, in the top drawer of your desk there are three envelopes, and you will know when to open them."

The new sales manager missed the first quarter sales numbers and was in a quandary as to what to tell the CEO so he went to the drawer and opened the first envelope. The note inside read, "I've only been here ninety days." Great, thought the new sales manager, and he used that excuse with the CEO.

The next quarter, the numbers were missed again, and the manager opened the second envelope. The note read, "Blame it on the prior management." That was his story to the CEO for that quarter.

There was no difference at the end of the third quarter: those numbers were missed also, and the new sales manager opened the third envelope. The note read, "Make out three envelopes."
