If you tried to call Bozeman Montana Real Estate.net's agents early morning last Tuesday and could not reach them, you could have called our office where they were all gathered (a rare event to be sure). Last week, we started a three course training session to help learn what facets of ourselves are limiting professional growth.
I will be keeping tabs and notes to post later but for now, I am riding the momentum of a similar nationally offered seminar hosted by Real Estate Educators Association and Awesome Females in Real Estate which was held in Scottsdale, AZ this June. Major takeaways from that event included:
Realtor and coach Joeann Fossland began her session on “What is Success” with a quote from author and business consultant Jim Collins: “Failure is caused by the undisciplined pursuit of more.” (Source) The 'More' here being everything in life that starts to weigh a person down. The clutter. Technology is a big 'more' factor that starts to add up cost wise. Sleep deprivation is oftentimes a direct outcome to the chasing of 'more'. In fact, psychologist K. Anders Ericsson’s research shows that if you sleep 7.5 to nine hours per night, you will perform better across the board. In fact, the two best-performing groups in this study napped every afternoon. Give your life and your bad habit a critical assessment. Clean up your life and what is consuming your time negatively and all that extra will help you achieve much more with what you already have.
Find what is ‘you’ and put your marketing into that! Chance is that someone out there will identify with your uniqueness and click with you instantly or they will admire the fact that you are being vulnerable to the public eye by being yourself. Authenticity markets well.
Stay tuned for what we learned about ourselves! I am already keeping :15 by :15 min track of what my days look like to help with personal time management. We will see where this personal betterment journey goes! We are coming together as a TEAM: Personal Growth Leading to Office-Wide Success.
