I was in Starbucks this morning after a 2am return flight from Boston yesterday. When I lose sleep, it upsets my normal schedule. Things that I wouldn’t normally notice, I get fixated on. While waiting for my latte, I had the chance to observe three people standing and eating muffins. They were waiting for a table to become available. One guy had no care about spreading crumbs all over the floor. Mr Clueless. Guy number two would drop crumbs and push them under a table with his boot. Mr Sneaky. The third guy was hyper-careful to not make a mess, armed with a napkin. Mr Careful. Who would I hire as a sales-rep and why?
You can learn much about somebody based on how they eat a muffin.
