In thriving in these chaotic times in real estate there is a good question to ask yourself,
How Good Are You At Turning Things Upside Down?
Some are naturally good at stirring the pot and coming up with fresh ideas. Others of us live in very consistent and structured worlds.
But creative thinking and brain storming and fresh ideas and looking at the world in a different way can possibly make things better or solve problems more optimally or get you where you want to go faster.
Practice in your mind using your imagination and thinking of something or a situation COMPLETELY DIFFERENT than the way you originally thought of it. It is what brought us the airplane, the personal computer, man on the moon, and even ways to park your bike at the beach. It's not that hard actually and is rather fun if you think about it.
What does this have to do with real estate or life in general? Solutions are truly out there for many problems, some solutions vastly better than others. But you have to work at it sometimes or even assist the help of others. When you find the cool best solution it is very rewarding and like a feather in your cap. Then you're off on your bicycle to tackle the next problem, with flair, gusto, and confidence. Then help others to show them there's more than just bicycles out there but bicycle makers who know how to put wings on those babies and make them fly.
