How's That New Year's Resolution Change Thing Working For You?


www.camoves.com/michael.jacobs


It's the end of the first month(yes, already) of 2012.  Resolutions?  Did you make any? Or did you just say no to the entire resolution thing?  

If change is part of your 2012 plan, how's that change thing working for you?

Better Health?   Improve Finances?   Get Organized?   Balance Life?

What changes do you want?   

Whatever the resolution ... if it involves change -- are you making sure you are focused on the change or are you letting a slug or two enter your life.

Slug?  No, not the slimy mollusk but 

a metal disk or used as a coin or token, usually counterfeit

Counterfeit Change, Not Real Change

Stay Focused on Your Change

 

And if 2012 is a year of change of residence for you, I'm happy to assist you whether you are buying, selling, leasing or exchanging your home.   My name is Michael Jacobs and I am a Realtor serving the Pasadena as well as other areas in the San Gabriel Valley as well as the adjacent northeast foothill communities in the ciyt of Los Angeles.  I can be reached at 818.516.4393 cell or michaeljacobs@coldwellbanker.com

Michael I reserve my right to plead the fifth my friend.  Actually I'm sticking to my work but can't seem to stick to cutting the work hours down and finding making more personal time.  Which is greatly needed.  Good thing Debbie is so understanding and of course at her desk working till all hours too.

I don't make resolutions Michael, because I know what needs to be done and just do it normally.  Something I am always working towards is losing weight, and I'm on track now and managed to lost 6.2 pounds last week, so I'm pretty happy.

John -- finding balance can be very difficult, it's good you have an understanding wife.

Roger -- resolutions can happen anytime and as you write, if you know what needs to be done and address it, that's a good thing.   I'd say you are on the right track and if last week is any indication, you should be very happy - congratulations.

Michael,  My resolution was to double the volume of real estate in 2012.  So far I am off to a crazy (good) start so I think this goal might actually be attainable.  Woo hoo!

Michael - I did not have a new years resolution, anytime I want to make a change I just do it.

Michael great post, "Do you have any spare change?:))" I do not make any resolutions either. I do have a $ amount taped to the back of my printer that I see every time I am on the Laptop:) I will let you know end of December how it worked!

Michael, I made some decisions for a different life on my birthday at the end of December instead of making New Year's resolutions.   The decisions that I made are being implemented and working out great!  Hope others are progressing with any goals that they have set.

Michelle - any plan that works sounds like an excellent plan to me.

Endre - a written goal is certainly a good start to achieving it and if you are seeing it on a consistent basis you are thinking about and working your way towards it.

Judi - I also believe birthdays can be a great way to review, refine and start resolutions(plans) as we move forward.

The good news is I've been keeping up on all of them. Weight loss is still going good and business is better than ever.

Hello Michael:

A little scary to think that 2012 is more than 1/12th over. As far as resolutions, I made a resolution years ago not to make any and so far I have kept it.;)

Michael: That's the thing, isn't it? Habits take up 24/7/365 and to get a new one in there, you have to get rid of an old one or two that don't serve you any longer, or not as well as the new one might. I'm analyzing this month... "which one of you has to go!?" I need some room! Fun post and a great read. Thanks! Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Hi Rene - this time of year is filled with what we wished had happened if only -- oh, those if only -- plans that are not written and specific just aren't worth having, are they?
