What Motivates You - 04/17/09 12:42 AM
Where Do You Fit on the Motivation Continuum? Physiological and Safety Motivators at the bottom. (Survival) I don't think there are many Realtors who are motivated by the bottom two. First we live in a society with a social safety net and protection from harm. Sure if we lived in previous centuries, were not part of the social and economic elite, experienced the depression or fought a war we would be operating at the bottom fighting for basic survival. Secondly, people attracted to become Realtors are high functioning individuals with tons of transferable skills who if they just need to survive (4 comments)
Irritations - 04/16/09 09:28 PM
Irritations I once heard a speaker say you can tell a lot about a person from the things that they find irritating. Here are a few things that have irritated me. •1. Person ahead of me in line waits until the clerk has rung all her purchases and then puts her purse on the counter and starts rummaging for her wallet. •2. The driver ahead of me pulls into the intersection, stops, and then puts on his left signal. •3. The woman in the fast food line ahead of me reads the entire menu to her two year old so he (2 comments)
WHAT'S IN YOUR BUCKET LIST - 04/15/09 08:37 PM
Bucket List Defined: a wish list of things to do before you "kick the bucket." What would you do if you had one year before you kicked the bucket? Alternatively what would you do if had no obstacles stopping you from doing it including no money obstacles? My List Includes: Christmas in Austria. Hiking Across England. Run Another Half Marathon. Buy a Tailor Made "Shark Skin" Suit Like Frank Sinatra Used to Wear. Learn to Sing. Build a Hot Rod Using 1949- 1952 Mercury. Climb The Grouse Grind. Sail The Gulf Islands. Buy A False Creek Condo. Attend Opera The New (2 comments)
TWO BY FOURS - 04/11/09 12:53 AM
Some men in a pickup truck drove to a lumber yard. One of the men walked into the office and said, "We need some four-by-twos." The clerk asked, "You mean two-by-fours, don't you?" The man said, "I'll go check," and went back to the truck. He returned shortly and said, "Yeah, I meant two- by-fours." "All right. How long do you need them?" The customer paused for a moment and said, "I'd better go check." After a while, he returned to the office and said, "A long time... we're gonna build a house!" (0 comments)
HEAVEN AND HELL - 04/11/09 12:38 AM
A real estate dies and soon finds himself standing in front of St. Peter. St. Peter tells him "You have a choice of going to heaven or to hell and I suggest you check them both out before deciding." So he chooses to check out hell first. He goes down to hell and finds himself in the middle of the biggest party he has ever seen. People are dancing and drinking and doing the limbo (and nobody's doing the Macarena!). Everyone is laughing and having a great time. Next St. Peter takes him up to heaven to look around. Everything is (1 comments)
The Farmer & Lawyer - 04/11/09 12:31 AM
A farmer walks into an lawyer's office wanting to file for divorce. The attorney asks, "May I help you?" The farmer said, "Yeah, I want to get one of them thar divorces." The attorney said, "Well do you have any grounds?" The farmer said, "Yeah, I got me about 140 acres." The attorney says, "No, you don't understand. Do you have a case?" The farmer says, "No, I don't have a Case, I have a John Deere." The attorney says, "No, you don't understand. I mean do you have a grudge?" The farmer says, "Yeah, I got me a grudge, that's (1 comments)
American Idol Training for Realtors - 04/10/09 06:35 PM
I've been a long time fan of American Idol since it first aired. Not being able to carry a tune in a bucket I am taken back how many people can sing not just well but have great voices. The talent pool is immense but just like Real Estate talent is not all it takes to succeed or become great.
AI winners are usually the ones who are able to take the criticism handed out by the judges and use that to propel them forward in the competition. The competitors who retaliate against the judges don't long last in the (1 comments)
Political Satire - I Just Had to Share - 04/10/09 01:47 AM
I recently asked my friend's little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be Prime Minister some day. Both of her parents, liberals, were standing there, so I asked her, 'If you were Prime Minister what would be the first thing you would do?'She replied, 'I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people.'Her parents beamed.'Wow...what a worthy goal.' I told her, 'But you don't have to wait until you're Prime Minister to do that. You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my patio and driveway, and I'll pay you $50.

BILL NASBY DOOR KNOCKING GURU - 04/10/09 01:24 AM
Talked to Bill Nasby tonight. Eight-one years old and still driving around North America in his RV doing workshops on Creative Visualization and door knocking. Many of you will know that Bill has had some cancer concerns in the past but is now 100% cancer free. It was conquered Bill's way. A special diet, creative visualization, affirmations and what Bill would call the universal source. Way to go Bill. Bill is the real thing. A couple times in his life he has relocated to a new community and with a very short period of time he became a top producer (13 comments)
