How Have You Prepared?

By

Today I was listening to one of the March Madness coaches interviews from Furman University. This team did the unimaginable and upset a top seed in the NCAA tournament. The young man who hit the buzzer 3-point basket came out as a hero of the game.

                   

The coach said in the interview that his player, JP Pegues who hit the incredibly deep, 3-point buzzer shot had not performed that well throughout the game. However, he told said of the player, "This young man was prepared for THAT shot! He comes to practice early and he stays late." He continued saying, "The hard work this young man put in paid off when it was needed."

Isn't this true of most things in life? The more prepared we are, the better chance we have to find success. During a clutch real estate transaction, the agents who have trained and prepared will be the agents who succeed in getting the tough deals to the finish line. The extra work via training, courses, and learning to remain calm in a tough situation, will result in being prepared for the clutch shot.

How are you staying prepared in real estate? Are you staying on top of trends and putting in the required work? If the answer is yes, then more than likely, you are a prepared real estate agent.

Laura Cerrano - the saying you quoted, "They say failing to plan is planning to fail," is excellent.

You bet being properly prepared does make a big difference, Michael Jacobs. And, it is always evident of those who are prepared.

Oh my, Michael J. Perry - that was a good lesson for sure. An unprepared speaker does no one a good service.

Hi Paula- oh yes...I watched as the first part of my bracket began to collapse!!!  I love sports because of the lessons we can learn and being prepared is one of the most important lessons. Show up and be prepared!

Hey there, Kathy Streib, so many of my brackets busted as well. This is by far, my favorite sporting event to watch.

Furman played with nothing to lose and as the game progressed and they felt they had a chance they just willed themselves to win. It demonstrated that hard work and a desire to succeed will always have a chance. Same in real estate

Preparation allows us to be ready for the unexpected things we encounter in life.  And the perfect example is sports and real estate!  Every day is a challenge and we must be prepared in season and out of season.
