Playing games with new strategies

Mortgage and Lending with Mortgage Pro


    I enjoy playing Chess occasionally and it occurred to me that maybe I should utilize some of the principles of Chess in my career. I said that I enjoyed playing chess, however, I am not that good at the game. Average at best. The reason I don't get much better is my impatient character. I want to win yesterday. Chess is a game of strategy, moving only after thorough contemplation of the moves ahead.  Too often I see what I want to do without taking into consideration of what my opponent might do. I have to remember to keep my options open. If I look towards one strategy, my opponent will take charge and defeat me.


    How does chess fit with mortgages you may ask. In this day and age, we must keep our minds open to new and better strategies. The real estate market is getting more and more competitive. If we see only one way of doing things, we will surely be defeated. We must continually see "outside the box" for new and innovative ways of doing things.  Patience and timing is everything in the real estate world.

 Are you looking for new strategies to improve your "game"? Or are you using the same losing game plan? The world is constantly changing. Are you changing with it?

Hi Michael,
You are right and I must admit I am impatient by nature so I really have to work hard at staying patient.  If what we are doing is not working, we must find a new way.

Cynthia- I think most people have less patience than they should. Good luck working at it!

Mike- Fresh and interesting gets harder and harder to come by. Sometimes i wish I was a bit more creative.
