Today, through the “wonders” of technology, the changing of markets, and the evolution of the business, we are required to remain just as diligent about our development as when we were rookies. The diligence, the work, are the things that solidify the process.
And our business, at its best and at its worst, is constantly about the process.
So, What are you DOING to stay up on the latest tools, methods, and techniques? What are you DOING to better understand today’s crazy markets? What are you DOING to better serve your buyers and sellers? What are you DOING every single day to be the best agent you can be?
The greatest blessing AND biggest curse of real estate is that the target for success is constantly moving. Monetary goals, number of transactions, they can be static sort of objectives. Being the best you can be, providing that GASP-worthy service, however, these are the targets that won’t stand still. They are the ones requiring us to remain diligent, no matter our experience.
The answer? Keep working the process. Stay diligent on the path to excellence. Read, listen, attend.
