Closing in on a new year can be an excellent time for reflection on your business goals. If you’re up for the challenge, take a moment to run a “wellness check” on your business. Where do you stand on taking advantage of opportunities that come? Is your business evolving? Are your connections authentic? How is your motivation? Real Estate can be a tough business, and if you don’t periodically check-in with yourself and honestly evaluate and audit your business, you’re holding back your prosperity.
Appointments, Appointments, Appointments
Look at your calendar. Take a long hard look. If your schedule isn’t full of appointments for the rest of the week, you’re not building, and you’re not connecting. If this is a trouble spot, it’s not too late. Honesty is the first step in moving forward. It’s time to become intentional about your client relations, making appointments a priority, and building.
When should you start? Now. End 2019 on an up-swing. Set your goals for appointments and get out the scoreboard. Build your confidence by making and achieving your goal and build your pipeline for a strong start to 2020.
Countless research and studies have proven that multitasking is a myth. Splitting your time between many goals only results in disorganization and confusion. Work on one goal at a time and give it one hundred percent of your attention. Discipline is not the most critical ingredient in reaching your goals. Good habits are what creates success. Live intentionally with practices that align with your purpose and goals.
Remember, “goal contagion” is a real thing. Examine who is in your inner circle, who is in your sphere of influence, and see whose habits you may be picking up. Jim Rohn said, “You are the average of the five people you surround yourself with.”
Dare to be Grateful
Gratitude is not only the greatest of the virtues, but the parent of all others, the moral memory of humanity, the most passionate transformative force in the cosmos, the key that opens all doors, the quality that makes us and keeps us young (Emmons, R. A., & McCullough, M. E. 2004. The psychology of gratitude. New York: Oxford University Press.) Happiness, hope, motivation, courage, humility, you name it, cannot be had or felt without branching off gratitude.
