Do you have a Vision for 2017?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hamm Homes

 

I heard the other day from a agent that they do not do budgets, do not do goals and they do all the right things and business just comes to them.   That got me wondering if I am going about this all wrong.  

I believe that you have to have a vision and goal and be committed to them.  I have budgets, a game plan, monthly goals.  

Where would companies be by not having a plan for the future and not having a way of getting there and growing their business.   My wondering is over,  some agents are just lucky,  that is what I think.

You have all heard me say this before "PLAN YOUR WORK AND WORK YOU PLAN"  I still believe in this!

Hello Kristin Johnston,  I agree with you,  why write a plan if you do not compare it with your action.

Totally agree, Will Hamm,  a goal and a plan AND as you and Kristin Johnston - REALTOR® point out:  work it!  Hahahaha -  Think where the failure comes in is when we throw the plan in a desk drawer and/or file and our well-thought out, formulated plan gets lost in a mess of papers. Yep, we killed it; it is dead in the water...er, files. :)

Hi Will, I wouldn't be able to accomplish much without a plan and my daily to-do list. I know many who don't have plans or goals, somehow, they're still in the business.

Start 2017 with written goals and a action plan to achieve your goals.

Good luck and success.

I have to agree with you, Will.  Difficult to do well without a plan.

I think everyone is different and some people are just luckier in life, it is definitely beneficial to have goals and a plan in place!

Absolutely you should have goals because it is a known fact you achieve them more when you do and that is why I also believe in resolutions. It is silly when people think they shouldn't.
