Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Corn continues to trade in a 20-cent range. Weather conditions appear favorable for early planting, which makes above trend-line yields possible. While some in the market estimate there is enough weather premium in Dec futures at $3.75, many think above average yields will bring $3 corn or lower. Many farmers are hoping for a 50-cent weather driven rally to catch up on sales. Both sides are keeping corn “stranded” in a narrow trading range.Beans recovered nicely on Friday to stay in the current 60-cent trading range they had been in. Fundamentally the bean story isn’t bullish. There may be a $1+ per bushel weather premium factored in due to La Nina potential in August. Farmers will likely continue holding beans because many are underwater at these levels. Beans could continue to trade sideways temporarily.A longtime friend of this weekly newsletter sent me an article about a possible correlation of Great Lakes ice coverage and the national corn yield. While the story was interesting, I’ll just say…I wish it was only that easy. It seems I read something every day that counters a “weather prediction” from the previous day. Last year people in the eastern corn belt were trying to correlate why corn should be $5. When it hit $3.50 many farmers were devastated and unprepared.Bottom line — weather is impossible to predict. But on top of that, even when we compare similar “weather-type” years, there are too many variables affecting the market to use the information effectively. For instance, while the weather was maybe similar in 1983, 1988, 2010, 2011, or 2012, other market situations were still vastly different. Funds are more active now than in the 80s. Farmers debt to asset ratios are different as well as Government and Insurance protection programs. Even seed technology is completely different between 2016 and that of five years ago, let alone the 80s and 90s.I’m not suggesting we disregard weather predictions and historical trends, but it’s important to keep them in perspective. I read recently that using historical weather predictions tend to be correct two out of three times (or 66% of the time). Are you prepared to place a $50,000 bet on those odds? Let me give you an example. Say corn rallies to $4. If the average 100,000 bushel farmer waits, hoping for $4.50, but ultimately has to sell for $3.50, that farmer gambled away $50,000.There is substantial risk in these markets and there will continue to be until at least July. Take all the weather predictions with a grain of salt and try to develop a long term grain marketing strategy that takes into consideration multiple weather scenarios, rather than hoping it will rain and betting all your grain on it. If you make plans now with a flexible strategy, weather conditions will have less of an effect on your bottom line in the end.

This is an actual sequence that was used to pursue over 20,000 contacts. The names of these contacts are blurred out to protect their identities. Down the right-hand column you are looking at the first eight steps in the sequence. This image is worth 10,000 words.If you look in the furthest right column, you’ll notice step one was an email and is indicated by the tiny email icon in the words “step #1.” You’ll notice in the top column they have contacted 18,000 of the 20,000. Only 15 of them replied to the first step. Moving down to step #2, indicated by an icon of a telephone, you will see that 1,544 people responded to that attempt. That is an increase of 100 X.Step #3 is a LinkedIn connection request. A worthwhile endeavor no doubt, but with a very low yield as it pertains to engagement with the prospective client. Because I know this group, I know their use of outreach.io is excellent, as is their connection request. It isn’t the straight pitch. The next step, #4, is another email, this time yielding 21 engagements.In step five this group returns to the telephone, engaging with 1066 prospective clients. They followed that with another attempt on the telephone in step six, creating another 456 engagements. In step #7, another email, for 16 engagements. Step #8, an email produces 242 additional client engagements.There are almost no voices left willing to tell you that you should not use the telephone as the primary tool for prospecting. The few voices that still write about cold calling as something negative still believe that “social selling” has replaced the need to use the telephone. The group using this tool is generating 4 to 5 deals for every 100 contacts they pursue. Remember, the sequence you’re looking at here was used to pursue over 20,000 contacts. Most content marketers would have a tough time yielding 800 using content marketing alone (And I consider myself a content marketer)Mike Weinberg, Jeb Blount, Mark Hunter, and I all share the same experience around campaigns and professional pursuit plans. It takes four or five attempts, mostly telephone, to gain the attention and engagement of your dream client. The image here is an excellent example an explanation of what prospecting looks like in the modern day.

Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now Many years ago, I started the process of eliminating procrastination. It wasn’t easy, and it took me longer to beat than I imagined it would. Over time, the practices I put in place became habits, displacing the resistance I felt towards some tasks and projects. What follows will help you stop procrastinating on the work necessary to reach your goals.Worst Things First: First of all, not very many things are as bad as you make them out to be in your mind. You can get yourself all wound up and talk yourself into resisting work you need to do. I started to do the very worst thing I need to do first each day, believing that my psychic energy was better in the morning. If I had a tough call to make, I would make it before doing anything else. If I had some client work I wasn’t thrilled to have to do, I did it first—and without hesitation. The early win propelled me into my day, and everything I did after that was increasingly easier. Much of the work I resisted took me less than 45 minutes once I buckled down.Scheduling Work: If you haven’t ever lived on your calendar, scheduling your work in 90-minute blocks (or something like that), you have no idea how much work you can do in a day. You know that project you don’t want to start on, but you know putting it off isn’t going to make it go away? Schedule an appointment with yourself and put it on your calendar. No matter what happens, when it’s time to begin, get started. For some reason, this provides freedom from worrying about the project or task until it’s time to start.These first two disciplines are game-changers for all who employ them. But there are more.Ruthless Prioritization: We get productivity backward. We think of it as tasks instead of outcomes, and we keep to-do lists that are entirely transactional and lacking any emotion, utterly devoid of purpose and meaning. To beat back your desire to procrastinate, you have to start with purpose and meaning. When you look at the work you have to do, framing it in terms of the contribution it makes to the bigger vision you have for yourself, something beyond even goals, you can find your motivation (something Sinek would describe as your “why?” and what I would call your “identity.”).Order of Importance: This is a derivation on priorities. Two things might be equally important, both in line with your purpose and meaning. In cases where priorities are competing for your time, you have to find another way to measure what gets done and in what order. Some outcomes are more valuable than others, which means you should default to doing whatever is going to make the more significant contribution. What is going to have the greatest impact over the more extended time? Answering this question can move you from being a firefighter to a place where you are exercising personal leadership, building a better future.Give Yourself Over to the Work: Some work may feel resistible. However, no project can create resistance if you decide to make the project something incredible. One of the most important decisions you make is to choose to give yourself over to your work, investing your emotional energy. So, it’s a report. How do you make the report something people will talk about for weeks and months after you deliver it? You have to have a difficult conversation with a client. How can you help them more than anyone else, and more than they would have ever expected? If every project is a reflection of you, what do you want that reflection to be?How you do one thing is how you do everything.All of these strategies are habits you can build. You can will yourself to do the nastiest, foulest thing first, until you no longer even think about it. You can make and keep commitments to yourself, scheduling work on your calendar and treating it like you would anyone else who occupied that same space. If you haven’t every ruthlessly prioritized your work, there will be dozens of things that you will prune from your task list, freeing up bandwidth for what’s important. You know your best work always requires you to engage with it passionately.If you try these approaches, you will find that your resistance gives way as soon as you start to do whatever it is you were avoiding. Once you are in motion, you have shifted your focus, and procrastination dissolves.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons shined again in front of rapper Meek Mill, and the dominant duo ushered the nightmares-into-dreams Process of the Philadelphia 76ers into the second round with a 104-91 win over the Miami Heat on Tuesday night.The 76ers, winners of 10 games just two seasons ago, are in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs for the first time since 2012.They await the winner of Milwaukee-Boston. The Celtics lead the series 3-2.The Sixers won the series 4-1 and turned the Wells Fargo Center into the wildest house party in the city. Embiid had 19 points and 12 rebounds, Simmons had 14 points and 10 boards, and the entire team had rappers, politicians, actors and kids dancing along for the ride.Mill made a dramatic return hours after Pennsylvania’s highest court ordered him freed while he appeals decade-old gun and drug convictions.WARRIORS 99, SPURS 91OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Kevin Durant scored 25 points, Draymond Green led a smothering Golden State defense and the Warriors held off late-charging San Antonio to win Game 5 and advance to the second round of the Western Conference playoffs.Klay Thompson had another stellar shooting performance with 24 points, and Green contributed all over with 17 points, a career-playoff high 19 rebounds and seven assists. Golden State looked dominant until the fourth quarter even without injured two-time MVP Stephen Curry — and he could be back soon from a left knee injury.LaMarcus Aldridge converted a three-point play with 1:31 left that pulled the Spurs within 93-89, and then a pair of free throws at 57.2 to make it a two-point game. Green responded with a long jumper at the top of the key then two free throws with 9.1 seconds remaining.The Warriors will face New Orleans in the West semifinals beginning this weekend at Oracle Arena, having smoothly eliminated the Spurs aside from a brief Game 4 blip Sunday at San Antonio.
