Do You Have a Smart Desk?
I heard a great quote today that really resonated with me, and prompted this post. Perhaps it will strike a chord with you as well.
I am attending the Annual CRS Meetings in Orlando, as a member of our Chapter leaderships and as a national Education Forum committee member. Today was a special day-long series called Listing Legends, a topic for another post. But the lead-in to the session, by moderator Dale Charlton, posed the question...
Do you have a smart desk?
We've all attended educational sessions, seminars, expos and other meetings where we brought home pages of notes on great stuff we could implement in our businesses, books on every real estate tip in the world, cool CDS and DVDs, gadgets, subscriptions to websites, and so much more.
I am ashamed to admit some of those books sit unread on the shelf, cellophane is in place on CDs, and web sites remain as they were when purchased.
How about you?
That hasn't happened to you, has it?
OK, it's not quite that dire, but I made a commitment a few years back to stop this foolishness, and my credit card thanks me. I simply leave it behind so I’m not tempted. It’s worked well.
In terms of the Listing Legends sessions today, however, there was a ton of great learning from some of the top listing agents in the CRS organization around the country, an unparalleled sharing of ideas in my 10 years of real estate conferences.
I’ve started my list of the top 20 things to implement, that I will cull down, hopefully, to 5 or so in order to make it all happen by the end of 2012 in preparation for 2013.
My plan is to make sure that I don’t have a smart desk, but a smart business.
Are there things you have learned about, seen, or bought that could be put to work in your business? Or do you have a smart desk?
