Goal Setter.....Goal Getter

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

I set several goals for myself this year and I am happy to report that I achieved the third of the three major goals this week- I passed my TN Broker's Exam.  It's an exciting time for me and honestly I don't know what to do now that I've reached my goals.  I am sure I will just continue to set more, but I'd like to take a moment to let this one sink it a bit. 

I am pretty sure most people set goals; some don't.  Seriously. I know to many that's just plain crazy talk.  I mean, goodness, I set a goal as soon as I get out of bed in the morning.  Recently I have wondered more about how other people conduct their business.  I am not sure why; probably out of my need to figure out the most efficient and effective ways to do things.  There's that I/D personality again.  Anyway, as I have come to realize that achieving goals large or small is the way to live and sell.  I am going to start setting goals for each listing that I take relative to that particular home and  I will make them extremely specific.  I think we all set goals for selling and for listing, but as part of stepping up customer service I think I will think of each listing as a child.  This should be easy for a mother of two girls.  Some days and transactions will be great and a few won't, but that's life and that's selling.

I'm curious about how others set goals. I would love some feedback from all the readers out there.  I am even open to hearing from you all who are not in the real estate world.  Maybe you don't even sell anything, but you have a great way to set goals specifically and in an obtainable way even if it's a monster goal.

Great job on passing!!! I heard broker's tests are difficult. Keep setting goals and make sure to make a few good ones too (like make it to hawaii or vacation in europe) so that you get some good stuff too!
