A Matter of Perspective
By America’s Six Figure Real Estate Coach Roberta Ross
New Year – new focus! I love this quote by Henry Moore, “I think in terms of the day's resolutions, not the year’s.” Right? Resolutions? They tend to go right out the window by February 1st for most people unfortunately. Why? They are too vague most of the time. Too BIG picture, not enough RIGHT NOW focus. Ever hear that old joke, “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” That’s how the top earners in every field take on their days. Take on their goals. Make their fortunes. One bite at a time.
It’s all about perspective. Instead of just gazing longingly into a future where you’ve got what you want, bring today into focus. What can you do TODAY that will take you closer to your goals? What can you do this hour to make a difference? What can you accomplish in the next thirty minutes that will impact your bottom line? That feels a whole lot more manageable doesn’t it?
I’ll give you an example. Sometimes when speaking to new coaching clients and talking about the need to consistently keep in touch with their sphere of influence, and how important it is to reach out to each client at least a couple times a year personally – they get instantly overwhelmed. “But Roberta! How will I ever find the time to speak to 267 people?” The answer? One at a time. Systematically. You don’t have to reach them all in a DAY now do you? Heck no. What if you contacted 5-6 a week for the next 50 weeks? One a day? Can you fit one call a day in? Sure you can. Can you block out some time to knock 10 out a week? Sure, that’s easy – right?
Look, I love big picture thinking. I love BIG thinking. BIG goals. BIG dreams. But when it comes to execution – take those things and break them down into do-able action steps. Put a little system in place that keeps you focused on those steps daily, so you know when you’re on track and when you’re off. That way you don’t lose three weeks of your life NOT taking any action because you so focused on why you CAN’T possibly do it all. Think about that elephant story. One bite at a time. You’ve got this – and if you need help. I’m an email away. Let’s go take this year by storm. Are you in?
