The Objective - A look back to January of 2011

Real Estate Agent with Wayne M Martin

In late January of 2011 I wrote a post about "the objective". Actually it was more of a question. Kathy Streib and Carol Williams always mention going back for a review of once we thought. Well today I offer the affirmation I wrote about way back then: "The objective is to become an island of excellence in a sea of mediocrity." Some 10 plus years later I am still trying to get there. Enjoy your day.

It's fun to look back, reflect and be grateful for all you've accomplished and appreciated and all that can become in the future.  It never ends and that's even more fun!

Everyone needs to adjust in today's world.  If you don't you'll be left behind

Hi Wayne:

I think that's a very sound objective.

It IS interesting to read some of our old posts, for a number of reasons.

Yes an admirable goal to be an island of excellence but the sea of mediocrity seems to need a few steps forward to reach it's level of I0 ago.   Esp. politically the last 5 years.
