How to have a Successful 2009 in Real Estate – or Anything Else!

rotaryJust received the Rotarian’s Magazine for 01/2009.  As usual, a lot of great articles, but a few caught my attention, 

One of those is ‘How to Get Things Done’ with just a few clear pointers. as this is time to set business goals, I thought they can be borrowed to help us succeed in 2009 at our Real Estate career.  They are all based on common sense, but oh, so much sense!

1).  Prepare before you begin a project – Make an effort to organize your physical environment.  Take a few moments to write a list a the start of each day.  Set realistic goals.

2). Tacklee the biggest challenge of your day as soon as possible.  Avoid getting bogged down in less important chores.  There can eat up your time without giving you any sense of accomplishment

3). Think, don’t worry; focus, don’t hurry.  Try to remain calm and stay positive.  Allowing yourself to get stressed out will only make you less productive.  If you feel your concentration slipping, close your eyes and take a brief rest.

4).  Live in the moment; concentrate on the task at hand.  Check your list daily.  Allow yourself to feel good about what you have done, and see what awaits you tomorrow.

I also love the closing statement from a fictitious philosopher named Alfred E. Neuman –

successLive Every Day like it is  your last, because one of these days you are going to be right!

sold1With all the challenges we are going to face and all the things we try to accomplish in 2009 – prepare and plan ahead, stay focused, face difficulties head on, no delaying, no weaving, work purposely and smartly, concentrate and work hard:

Live for the moment as there is no tomorrow – There is only one way to go – Success!!!
