"The only people to get even with are those who have helped you."
~ Anonymous KEEP THE BALL ROLLING! Most of us can probably look back over our lives and careers and recall people who have either helped or hindered us along the way. Which group do you think is more worthy of your consideration? Unfortunately, many people spend too much time worrying about how they’ve been wronged. The bad stuff tends to stick in our minds, and we’re less inclined to recall the positive deeds and actions. While we may LEARN from our negative experiences, (0 comments)
"You can't keep blaming yourself. Just blame yourself once and move on." ~ Homer Simpson of Fox Television's "The Simpsons"
THE BLAME GAME!
Ever made a mistake, or failed at what you set out to do? Here’s some big news that you should already know: You’re not alone!
How many times have you kicked yourself in the pants for screwing up? Fessing up to your mistakes is a mark of maturity, self-confidence, and even progress. Whether admitting it to yourself or acknowledging your fault to others, you know that you simply must pick (0 comments)
real estate: Morning Coffee - Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work. - Aristotole - 10/15/12 08:09 AM
"Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work." ~ Aristotle GOOD HOUSEKEEPING? Aristotle’s quote seems pretty straightforward: If you like what you're doing, chances are you'll do it pretty well, and will find your work satisfying. But what about the dozens of smaller jobs that we do on a regular basis and do not particularly enjoy - chores we consider robberies of time, but necessary? You know, housecleaning or mowing the lawn or grocery shopping or washing the car. The fact is that most of us have too much on our "To Do" lists, and much of our “free time” (0 comments)
real estate: Nancy's Morning Coffee - You cannot discover new oceans unless... - 09/24/12 07:41 AM
"You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore." ~ Unattributed ELIMINATE THE BOX! It was refreshing to read the article entitled "Thirty Under Thirty" in the REALTOR(r) magazine. Thirty agents under the age of thirty talked about their approach to real estate, and most seemed to "think outside the box." They didn't appear to be bound by conventional rules of marketing conduct. Think back to when you were a young child. You were totally uninhibited by rules, so you weren't afraid to try new things. Back then, there wasn't even a "box" to (2 comments)
"It is best to act with confidence, no matter how little right you have to it." ~ Lillian Hellman EVALUATE THIS! So, when was the last test or exam that you took? Or have you experienced a recent evaluation of your work? Many of us, even if we're "the boss," have to go through a periodic appraisal of how well we carry out our jobs. Often, this assessment comes from outside - a supervisor "objectively" examines our performance. But what if you yourself could take the responsibility for your own evaluation? The trouble with some people is that they give (2 comments)
real estate: Nancy's Morning Coffee -"All I really need to know I learned in kindergarten"Robert Fulghum - 08/20/12 09:09 AM
“All I really need to know I learned in kindergarten.” ~ American book title (Robert Fulghum, author) “The children are watching us.” ~ Italian film title (Vittorio De Sica, director) BACK TO SCHOOL! Turns out the children are listening, too. The question is, what are they learning and what are we teaching? No matter whom we interact with, we should all take some time to reflect upon how our practices are matching up to our ethics and beliefs. We all have the potential to produce a profound effect on the people in our lives, both directly and indirectly. How we choose (2 comments)
