What's in Your Cupboard?

It's that time of year when most Realtors start to take time to work "ON" their business and begin to focus on next year's business plan.  Unfortunately, the norm is to have a plan as chaotic and disorganized at what could be found under my kitchen sink! 

Business plans


Are you spending money on duplicate items because you aren't organized enough to know what your spending money on?  Is there stuff in your plan that shouldn't even be there serving no useful purpose and with little to no hope of any ROI? 


Just like under my sink there were duplicates because I purchased seconds not knowing the original was there waiting to be put into action.  There were several items that had great practical value and purpose in other areas such as a role of toilet paper and business receipts.  Still not quite sure what those 2 were doing under the sink?  I had outdated items such as replacement bags for vacuum cleaners long ago sent to the vast vacuum cleaner playground in the sky. How many of us have outdated business practices and systems that no longer compete with current trends in marketing?

It felt good to purge, clean, organize, and discard until the cabinet now only contains useful items that are within easy reach and serve a valid purpose for the kitchen.  Now it's off to the office to do the same there and to delve into next year's business plan.  This is the time to focus and prepare for an organized profitable 2011.
