Do You Have SMART Shelves?

Real Estate Agent with Comey & Shepherd Realtors

How many books, magazines, tapes & CDs do you have on your shelves?

We all have them...some more than others; often from all of the seminars.

If you have any of these items lying around your office or home, I guarantee you're missing out on implementing strategies that could earn you thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars or more.

It's time to pick up one of these money-making tools and dive into it to see what 'treasures' you can find.  Write down the valuable nuggets you uncover and make a timeline to take action.

If you started reading a book awhile back, maybe you read a couple of chapters and then put it down.  Months later, you haven't picked it back up yet.  I know I've done that before.

When you sit down to read a business-related or motivational book, do you read it passively or do you really want to get some workable ideas from it?

When I read a book, I make sure that I have a highlighter marker, so that when I come across a great idea or philsophy that I want to implement, I mark it so I don't forget it later.  Then if I get interrupted and have to put the book down, when I pick it up later, I can review the highlighted parts of the book that I previously marked and that gets me back into the flow of the book.

When I finish a book, I head to my computer and start typing out all of the highlighted sections of the book and I call it my "(name of the book) Summary".

Then I review the "summary" and determine which ideas I can implement in my business right away and put timelines on others.

It's also a great time-saver, if you want to read the book again in the future, because, in essence, you can just read the highlighted segments ( the best parts) and not spend extra time reading parts that are not of interest to you.

A quick tip for magazines: When you receive a magazine, instead of putting it on your desk to read later, peruse it quickly and tear out any articles that are of interest to you and toss the rest of the magazine away.  Then when you have time to read the articles, use the highlighting strategy from above.

I hope this helps you. 

I'd love to hear any ideas you have on this.

To your success,
