Every moment . . .

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Pareto Realty TN #251071

Every morning, I wake up VERY early, make a pot of coffee, settle into my comfy chair with my computer on my lap desk, and I think and write and plan for the day.

Almost always, one thought rises above the others in terms of NOW significance whether it be personal or professional, and I have this golden opportunity to do something with that thought.
So often, we get mired in the tyranny of busyness and forget the value of the PAUSE such that these “AHA’s” can surface in our consciousness.
It’s not enough simply to have the “AHA” . . . what will you do with that revelation?
Will you make a plan for change?
Will you commit to a new way of doing things?
Will you resolve to adopt a new habit?
Will you “Dance” through deeper engagement with the right people?
Will you pledge to seize every moment with enthusiasm?
Will you decide to do your part in making this world a better place today and EVERY day?
Certainly, we all have plenty about which we can worry – should we?
Our Middle Tennessee real estate market is misbehaving writ large these days. The inventory continues to be egregiously low, and the deals we DO have are often struggles from start to finish. We have clients quitting their searches out of sheer frustration . . . not to mention the myriad social and political issues locally, Nationally, and Globally that continue to unfold each and every day.
I have survived the ups and downs of the real estate market since February of 1993, and I want to tell you my secret to “staying alive” as a REALTOR in tough times:
Persistent Consistence!
What has always worked (and WILL always work) is turning focus in every moment on moving FORWARD rather than expending energy running away from the issues at hand . . . and taking appropriate action through a steadfast regimen (mindset) of generating leads in every moment of every day.
This cannot happen unless you periodically pause long enough to create the space for new thoughts to emerge from your subconscious,
You already KNOW what to do . . .
Go do it NOW!

I have been up since 6 and have already sent a new listing out and am getting ready to send off a counter offer on another listing - then I need to schedule showings for tonight - we are still busy in this market.

We are in a slow down, but if you keep plugging along you will still have income, just not easy income.  We are actually having to work these days.

Good morning Barry. There are bound to be slow times in the market just not slow times in your business plan to achieve success. Enjoy your day!
