Fix tomorrow today!

Education & Training with Road to Wealth, Inc.

You have heard the phrase “Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today” This phrase is something that is really important when it comes to your future. Planning is very important, that is why every major business and successful person has a plan personally and in business.

Planning by jan-willem.jpg

What is your plan for tomorrow? Was yesterday, the way you envisioned it? Is your business going where you want it to? Why not? Did you plan today, yesterday? Well, if today isn’t going the way you want, what makes you think tomorrow will be any different unless you make the change today and plan to do something different tomorrow.

The great Jim Rohn once said “Now is the time to fix the next 10 years” What are your plans? If you don’t have a plan, then expect tomorrow, the next day or even 10 years from now to be no different that today and yesterday.

I don't think anyone plans to live the story of "Groundhog Day," but those without a plan tend to do just that.

Here lies part of the problem with so many agencies. They need to teach that if you don't plan, you don't succeed. They would rather make their companies a numbers game, hire as many agents as possible and take the money that comes in with them. No training, no future, when they are done and out of the business, replace them with the  next new agent that will sell to their family and friends and when they are don't repeat again.

All Brokers has a point. Hmmm....

Arlene, my problem isn't so much with planning, it is more with having the funds to implement my plans...LOL, but seriously, having the finances is always a problem when it comes to starting something that one has planned for...hmmm...

Richard and Norma:  Yes, without a plan you're just drifting around with no purpose.  We all need goals and aspirations we can reach.  Too many who DO plan set their sets so high that results are unattainable.  Better to do it a small chunk at a time.

Connie:  I agree wholeheartedly.  I would say the majority of brokers treat their office like they have a revolving door.  The first broker George and I were with had a huge office - 450 agents and 4 locations.  And I believe they were so successful because they spent time to really TRAIN their agents in the real estate BUSINESS, which also included goal planning.  We decided to go with the office that offered only 50% commission to start off (and increased that according to sales) as a trade off for the training.  And it paid off Big Time.  When we were ready we moved to a 100% office - we lasted because we had training.  Many agents left there because they had NO training.

William:  When George and I started in real estate we did not have a lot of advertising dollars, so we had to make every dollar count.  We found a small 3-line classified ad 4-5 times a week in the paper worked great.  Today you have a tremendous amount of FREE resources on the Internet.  Try thinking outside the box and plan your marketing using those strategies.  I wish you  the best.

George and Arlene, so many of us scrimp on the planning end of our business!  You are so right about having one, and it's got to be written down.  And an accountability partner helps, too.

You are so very right.  Planning ahead and writing down goals, objectives and to-dos makes a big difference in how a day, week, month, year goes.

Hi George and Arlene - Periodically taking a look at our plan is a great way to stay on top of life changes that could mean a change in direction.
