Monday Morning Motivator & Some Points to Ponder...

     "Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there." ~ Will Rogers

     Procrastination. We are all guilty of it; especially when faced with that that task that is as much fun as a "sharp stick in the eye."

     We often sit like a bump on a log, waiting for an inspiration to strike. Then there are those times when we think we can see the light at the end of the tunnel and we slack off and wait. Don't wait too long, that light just might be that speeding train...

Michael-I woke up this morning and realized that the stack of files on my desk needed attention.  Thanks for reminding me to move it this morning.

Good Morning Michael.  I love these short and sweet motivations.  Thanks for posting them.  I have suggested this one for a feature.  I hope Active Rain will always feature motivational things.  We all need them. 

I just love Will Rogers and can't believe I hadn't heard this one.

Michael, I love this.  So many great agents are frozen or paralyzed by the news of this bad real estate market we are in.  They are sitting in the middle of the track with all the right tools but because someone somewhere has said that this is a terrible market they aren't doing anything.   I wrote 39 contracts last week.  I feel like a one armed paper hanger at a paper hanging contest.  What's everyone else doing?

Thanks Michael, of course I looked for your Monday motivational for my first blog read of the week!!! I see the light and am going towards it, and looking forward to being in it soon.  This week, I have to take the next plunge and start making those phone calls to my SOI.  It's the one part of prospecting I dread, but I know it's needed, so I'm ready to make my calls this week!!!

Procrastination is something that can kiil all of your previous efforts to get something accomplished.  There are days that we need to push ourself past the urge to sit and wait.

Superman has Arrived. Never know what to expect.

I sometimes drag my fee and that does not sit well with Ceil; she wants things done and over with and then on to something else. Her favorite saying ... GET'ER DONE SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY WITH IT LATER.

So true... speak it brother!! :-)  Some people do just wait around and figure that eventually things will work out or that the buyer, client, etc will just come pounding on their door when they are ready....

Michael, good motivator, sometimes if we sit and wait it will never happen. We need to go out on a limb and make it happen. Nice quote and beautiful picture.
