I have done a couple of thoughts blogs in a row. I came across this thought yesterday, and as yesterday was a Monday and we have been out of town so much recently, I didn’t get the time that I needed to write this post.
I don’t know about you, but I get emails that often have great quotes in them. This is something that I find helpful to me. Here is the quote:
“Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.”~ John W. Gardner
How true is this! I attended part of a class taught by Brian Buffini at NAR Anaheim, and one of the themes of his class was that the real problem brought on in the “boom” was that it allowed agents to be very successful at the expense of the fundamentals; things like prospecting, lead generation, negotiation and in short, running a real estate career like a business were those that he mentioned.
Those who have survived are beginning to realize that “magic pill” or the new “shiny” program to get them out of this economic downturn is a return to the basics. That combined with the use of technology to streamline their businesses. (That should be a whole other blog topic.)
I am a firm believer in that if you take extra care to do the little things extraordinarily well; that the major things will also be taken care of. This will be what leads to the excellence that Mr. Gardner is talking about. That excellence will in turn lead to the success that we all seek!
