As I sit here grumbling about the amount of work that went into my latest short sale that just closed, I have come to accept that in any business, change is THE only constant and you must react effectively to it.
When sailing a boat you can't change the strength or direction of the wind but you can change the set of the sail.
My market is changing. My overhead cost structure is changing. The skills required in this market are changing.
We must all get on the front side of the change curve so we won't be gobbled up by it. We must become and continue to be proactive rather than reactive or non active.
