Is Your Real Estate Career Being Eclipsed?
In light (or should I say the absence of), our recent solar eclipse yesterday I was inspired to pen this post. As everyone stopped what they were doing to observe this amazing event, wasn't it interesting to note how everything else going on in the world just stopped if only for a few moments! For just a brief time, we all looked upward, took in the amazing sight and momentarily just stopped.
The dictionary defines the word "eclipse" as an obscuring of the light from one celestial body by the passage of another between it and the observer or between it and its source of illumination. Hmmm, an obscuring of the light. Interesting.
As I reflect (ha ha) on the solar eclipse yesterday, I am reminded of making sure that I take time to stay focused on what is truly important. Yes my real estate career is extremely important, but have I allowed for the light to be obscured by things that are not really helping my career? What are my time wasters? What are my activities that are not "income-producing"
There are many things that can "eclipse" our focus on our businesses. Too much time on social media, not enough time strategizing or goal setting, or going from activity to activity with little or no time blocking. All of a sudden, our busy lives can literally "eclipse" our path. We realize that things have become obscured and we are blocked.
Use these naturally occurring phenomenons to re-focus, re-center, and to re-think. Set your goals, make plans, strategize daily. I believe that if we take time to do these things, we will stay focused. I certainly don't want my real estate career to be "eclipsed". I prefer to keep the light right where I need it.
Don't allow anything to "eclipse" what you are working toward. Shine the light brightly and keep the things obscuring your goals at bay! Shine on my friends!
