My "Good Habit" has served me well in both business & personal life for many years. My "Good Habit" is my ability to overcome obstacles when they arise. Rarely do I run into an issue I am not able to find away around, especially in my business. My knowledge of mortgage programs and their guidelines have helped me to avoid many of the road bumps that tend to come up during the course of the loan process these day. Because I am constantly staying on top of guideline changes, I am able to foresee possible issues early on in the loan process. When I do come across an unforeseen issue, the same knowledge enables me to find a solution to the problem. Occasionally when I hit a wall and do not know the answer, I know who to go to, or where to go to help me find the solution.
What I precive to be my most looming "Bad Habit" is that I tend to try to juggle to many things at once. I am a producing sales manager, so I not only have my loans to shepard through the loan process, but I also have to assist the Loan Originators who report to me with theirs. As a sales manager I also have responsibilities such as attending meetings, train Loan Originators, and prepare & present at monthly meetings. There are times when everything seems to happen at once with multiple time sensitive issues requiring my attention. But there are also times when the issue or task can wait, however, I am not a wait type of guy, so I address them right away. This tends to create at times longer days then they have to be, and needless stress. As hard as I try to avoid this, the do not put off to tomorrow what I can get done today attitudes tends to take over. I have gotten better at controlling this, but it is still a work in progress for me.
The "Ugly Habit!!!" Now this I have much to pick from, but since I can only pick one, I will go with my expectation of others. I am a very focused and motivated person. When there is a task to do, it gets done yesterday. That would be viewed by some as a "Good" thing and it mostly is. However, when the same focus and motivation becomes my expectation of others, it becomes "Ugly". Unfortunately my two boys experience more of my "Ugly" side than they should have. I demanded the best from them, especially when I knew they were capable of doing better. I demanded this from them as individuals, in school, and in sports. Failure and losing were not options, and failing to do their best was unacceptable. I demand almost the same from those who report to me. I tend to be a little more forgiving to them, but not by a whole lot. I do not micro manage those who report to me, but I expect them to do their job successfully. I am their to help in anyway I can, however, it is up to them to be focused on their job and get things done.
There you have it my habits, "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly". I am working on turning the "Bad" and "Ugly" into more positive qualities, but I still have a ways to go before that is accomplished.
