So many people in real estate, their lives, or their relationships have this philosophy whether designed or not thought through, of flying by the seat of their pants. How about you?
Can You Avoid The Train Wreck Coming Around The Corner?
I'm talking disaster planning. Not for hurricanes or computer meltdowns per se but more for the simple things in real estate or in life. Things that if you only could use some common sense and ask yourself, what if this were to happen, what would I do? Thinking at least one step ahead. For example in real estate, working with a buyer, what if a loan falls through, is their another lender, another program? If everything falls through it is a train wreck and no one wins. What about children that show early signs of hanging out with the wrong friends? It could lead to drugs or trouble with the law. Nip it in the bud. What about relationship or communication issues or hard feelings with another? Why let things fester? Clear the air. Be direct. March right over to your office worker and say, "We need to talk." Openess and well thought preventative measures can head off many train wrecks that will happen in your life if you don't get off the tracks and get out of the way. Afterall, you hear the whistle, you feel the ground vibrating, you can smell the smoke. What are you waiting for? A special announcement with your name on it?
