Average dooer beats out brilliant thinkers.

By
Real Estate Agent with Mann & Sons Inc. Rehoboth Beach

Are you a thinker, a dooer or a little of both?

I've know people who were brilliant statisticians, spending days if not weeks thinking, planning and brooding over solutions to the worlds problems. Quite honestly some of their ideas were spectacular but never put into motion.

I've also known my share of people with less than high IQ's who come up with a less than stellar idea but act on them quickly and efficiently. 

So in the long run who wins the race?  I guess a lot of it has to do with which race you are trying to win.

My point today is that you do not have to be brilliant to compete with the other Realtors in your town, By just doing SOMETHING you will have 80% of them beat. 

I believe the old Nike commercials said it best with their simple slogan "JUST DO IT"

What you point out is so true. Actions speak louder than words.

Average Joes are often more successful than the brilliant perfectionist stuck in the details.

I am constantly plotting, strategizing, and setting new goals.  You almost have to in this ever-changing, slowing market.  Only the strong are surviving.  Then of course I have to put this plan into action. 

If you don't put your plans into action you might end up having to wait tables at night to make ends meet. Or worse yet you get to the end of your life with a bunch of regrets.

One thing that has always stuck with me is something that I knew previously, but was voiced quite well by Ross Perot...  "The world is run by C students."  They often have to learn how to work to stay afloat.  The truly brilliant people wander through the world without having to exert... so they don't.
