Lisa and Jim's Northern Nevada Real Estate Blog: What I Really Know Is That "Halftime Is Over", and "It's A Whole New Game!"

What I Really Know Is That "Halftime Is Over", and "It's A Whole New Game!"

I Love Football!

Foot Balls on the Field

Jim and I have been intimately involved with our Local Pop Warner Football Organization for 21 years! 

I'm on the Board of Director for Douglas Pop Warner.  I'm Secretary for our Northern Nevada Sagebrush Empire Conference!  I have grandsons playing Mitey Mite and Pee Wee football this year, each for their fourth year starting in August.  I know Football!

I'm not a purist and I'm not a professional or college expert ... But! ... What I really know is that "Halftime Is Over", and "It's A Whole New Game!" 

Today is the First Day of the Second Half of the Year!  That means it's time for reflection, time for adjustment, and time for change!

In football the coach analyzes the 1st half, decides what worked, what didn't, and what needs to change!  Then they hit the field with a "Continued or Adjusted Strategy!" 

Now ... as agents in today's market ... should we show up tomorrow doing the same thing we have done all year ... change what we plan to do ... or analyze what has been successful and what hasn't, and create a combination of the two?

GO TIGERS!  Nice use of the football experience to get the right mindset for the second half of our business year.  When we are in the fourth quarter we'll remember this and hope that we made the right halftime adjustments.  Thank you, Lisa, for the mindset!

Wow it is half time already where has the time gone. I'm so beat up I need the half to get a breather. Maybe I need a substitute.
