New Year's Resolutions and Real Estate
We all have done it. Not so much the setting of goals, or wanting to get back into shape, or find new work out plateau's. But the setting of those goals and starting on January 1st. That in and of itself is not a bad thing. Actually very comendable. Where it goes bad is in wanting to accomplish it all in the first week!
Even if you don't belong to a Club just drive by one the first week or so of January. I am betting you will see a parking lot that is jammed with cars. Almost no where to park. Inside much the same story. Weight machines full, cardio vascular classes packed, lap lanes in pools doubled up. Make a point of driving by again maybe mid to late February. Most likely you will not even see half the # of cars in the parking lot.
I have done it myself, and quite sure most of us have. We set out that first week wanting to see end results immediately. Lifting weights to the point of barely being able to move, running distances Olympic runners would be proud of, and in general not thinking beyond today. We see more harm than good. More pain than benefit. And disappointment rather than success.
With Real Estate it is even more important to understand and plan for the long term. It is a given anything we do today in Real Estate shows itself 45 to 60 days down the road any many times longer. To expect results sooner is setting ones self up for failure.
Plan for the long run. Plan for day to day, week to week, and month to month consistancy. It is in consistancy that our goals are best met. Flurries and flashes do more harm than good, just as in working out.
We best accomplish our needs, goals, and desires as well as that of our clients by realizing success is a day to day process, and yet not acheived in any ONE day. Success is not in actually reaching the top of the mountain, but all the plateau's, ridges, and peaks acheived in that journey to the top.
