Agent Brenda's Plan for 2023

Real Estate Agent with Miranda Real Estate Group, Inc. NYS 10401214143

Happy New Year!  We're 9 days into 2023 which means that the great majority of people are already closer to NOT making their resolution a reality.  Yup!   Pessimistic?  No.  Just realistic. We've all seen the studies, reports and statistics that tell us that's true!

Anyone who knows me even a little, knows that I always have a to-do list and a plan.  I begin working on that plan during the autumn of the prior year.  I dive into my statistics, compare year over year performance, & reflect on what worked and what didn't.  We all hear that "a goal without a plan is nothing but a wish" and I committed very early in my career to work off of a goal. 

So what is my goal for the year ahead?  I could reveal a sales volume related goal with a long list of action items that I intend to complete to get there.  But honestly, my goal is about the people.  This business has introduced me to tons of awesome people & helped me better understand myself and humans at large through the guidance of making real estate goals a reality.  And until yesterday, I didn't realize how I could best articulate my true-blue, raw goal.  

Yesterday, I took a quick trip to our local Target and the 6 pages of reflection & planning that I have in place for 2023 was summed in 7 words on one wall hanging. 

It's really that simple and it reflects what I've always told my clients: "My goal is that we run into each other after the closing and you don't turn and run the other way".   SO... here it is folks! I plan to continue to work hard and be nice along the way.  Your goal is my motivation & I'll help you achieve it efficiently, professionally, & definitely with a bit of fun thrown in. 

I look forward to the year ahead & wish you all the best as it unfolds.

We often overcomplicate things.  This spelled it out quite clearly & really resonated with me.  Crazy right?! LOL  Thanks for the visit Joan Cox

Hello Brenda - while I no longer make resolutions at the start of the year, I like the words chosen to be a part of your daily plan for 2023.  I think it's wise advice for everyone.  And one where we can continue to improve.  Each day.

Did you buy it, Brenda? It's not that you'll need this daily reminder, but because it is so fitting for your 2023 plan and beyond. Wishing you another great year, in life and Real Estate!

Hi Andrea Bedard !  I did not buy it BUT... got home and realized that a smaller one that says the same thing sits above my head daily.  It stares at me daily but it took this other one to "whack me" with an "aha moment".  LOL!  Thanks for your visit.  Cheers to a great year ahead!!
