In recent years, we have experienced tremendous change in the Real Estate industry, forced by the hand of the economy. For many, this time provided an opportunity for reinvention. Perhaps for others who took on additional responsibilities with fewer resources, there seemed to be less time or money to focus on personal or professional growth. In either case, as the ground steadies and the promise of better days lie ahead, now is a great time to determine how to improve your future. Today could be a great day to set new goals, reignite your critical path or simply commit to learning something new. If you are a follower of Stephen Covey, you will know this as Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw.
Sharpening the saw is about constantly renewing ourselves in four basic areas of life: physical, social/emotional, mental & spiritual. For an organization, Habit 7 promotes vision, renewal, continuous improvement, safeguards against burnout, and facilitates an upward growth path.
The potential of just one positive habit can make a chain of changes to your life or business. That is one of the messages in a new book, The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, a New York Times reporter. Good habits help build lives, careers & successes. Commit today to adding one new positive habit.
