Don't you just love it when someone says something so wise, yet so simple that you slap your forehead and say - "I wish I'd thought of that... and why didn't I?"
Last week we did a teleseminar show in the SWS Virtual Studio called "The Authentic Agent," led by my good friend Dennis Giannetti. The tagline of the show was that we would to help real estate agents "create balance in their checkbooks... and their lives." Neato Frito.
During the show, Dennis came up with some great little phrases that had the audience saying "Aha... now THAT makes a lot of sense!" Thought I'd share them with you...
AHA QUOTE #1
"There's no such thing as Time Management; only Choice Management. We all have the same number of hours in every day and there's nothing we can do to "manage" those hours. What we can control (and "manage") are our choices. What do we CHOOSE to do within those 24 hours and are our choices getting us closer to our goals?"
AHA QUOTE #2
"We've all heard 'Don't dwell on the negative stuff in your life, just keep doing the right thing and everything will work out.' Yada yada yada - I know, a positive attitude doesn't pay the mortgage, but what's the alternative? A negative attitude? Will THAT get you closer to getting the mortgage paid?"
AHA QUOTE #3
"Stop making a daily To-Do list; instead, make a daily To-Be list. What do you want to BE at the end of this day?"
AHA QUOTE #4
"Instead of simply asking 'How do I become successful?' every morning ask yourself 'What do I need to do TODAY to feel successful tonight?' Do this every day and the compounding affect of your daily steps toward success will astound you."
AHA QUOTE #5
"Why focus so much on your weaknesses? Absolute best case, if you work diligently on improving a weakness, you might become 'pretty good' at it. But if you focus on strengthening a strength, you'll be exceptional."
Good stuff, eh?
