Your playbook

Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Acres

Are you using your "playbook" to your best advantage?

Do you even have a playbook ?

Maybe you call it your plan book....

In the movie "Waterboy" with Adam Sandler and Henry Winkler, Henry plays a coach of a failing miserably football team...

Someone took his play book......

In the sitcom "How I met your mother" Barney has a playbook. His book is much different as his goals are much different than that of a realtor.

Someone took his play book too......

As a realtor your playbook would include your mission statement and your marketing plan and your business plan which includes your goals and much much more.....

In "Waterboy" it takes the coach many years to realize that he wrote that playbook and he doesn't need it to succeed - he must start over and rewrite his "playbook" , afterall, he wrote it and it had come from within in the first place....

In "How I met your mother" Barney already knows he can succeed without the playbook and proves it. He had taken the last page before it was taken, he then writes it and leaves it for his friends as it all unfolds or happens so to speak!

The point is - if you can write the playbook - you can succeed even if someone TAKES your playbook...., in whatever form, you just

start over, you rewrite it, you carry on......

Carrying on being the keypoint.....

If at first you don't succeed, try, try, and try again.......
