Have You Planned For 2010?

 The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.
By Vince Lombardi



2009 is just about to end and most of us should be prepared for the upcoming year.  This year has seen new challenges to say the least.  In order to keep up with the coming times, we better have some type of plan.  My broker, has made it "mandatory" for all of us to turn in a 2010 Business Plan.  We meet twice a month and are to turn in our plan this coming Thursday.  I have spent majority of the time today putting it all down and realize that I need to come up with more than words....I better plan on the action as well.  I have seen or heard about REALTORS that I thought would never go out of business doing just that. Which tells me those remaining in the business need to really stand out!  Or, we will get eaten up ALIVE!

Since I haven't done a tune in awhile, I would like to end this blog with one of my favorites.  It does have me reflect on the year's events, personal and business, sad and good, all in all..a BLESSED year!


I am a licensed REALTOR® from Pike County located about 45 miles south of Atlanta and considered MetroAtlanta.  I assist buyers/sellers and strive to make the transaction as smooth as can be.  I believe that it is a TEAM EFFORT with buyer/seller, lender, attorney and myself.  Communication is the key!

Alicia, Thanks for the reminder. I need to get going on my 2010 goals and a plan to get there. I remember a saying " If you aim at nothing, you will hit it everytime".

Greg, You are welcome. Time has a way of slipping up on us doesn't it? Guess, that is why I love this song so much and have for years! To me it says it all.."another year has gone and what have you done?" Thanks for dropping by!

I set goals for this year but missed them by a mile. I will set new goals and see if I can hit them this coming year. I like the video. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Mike - MERRY CHRISTMAS to you/yours, my friend!  I am sure we all missed a few goals set...I know my sales were off from the year before.  My attitude is, if you fall down, pick yourself back up, wipe off the dirt and start walking again!  Thanks...I have always loved that song...usually more towards New Year..thought it was appropriate with the subject!
