Lisa and Jim's Northern Nevada Real Estate Blog: An Opportunity for Reflection As We Approach the End of the First Quarter

An Opportunity for Reflection As We Approach the End of the First Quarter

I'd like to share this message with everyone.  It includes an opportunity to participate in a free 1 hour coaching call that is happening on April 4th.  In earlier blogs I've discussed my views on coaching the importance it has in a successful real estate career.  There are many many great coaching and mentoring programs available, I believe John Alexandrov certainly offers one of the best and I'm happy to pass his great message along to anyone who wants to take advantage of it.



I can't *believe* how quickly time passes. It's nearing the end of March already.
The first quarter is just about over.

Seems like yesterday we were facing the new year... with new hopes and promises.

I recently read that in the ancient Roman Calendar, March was the start of the New Year.
There were a few reasons for this ... some seasonal ... some financial.

I wonder what people would do differently if March was the start of our new year?

Are you ending the quarter where you *expected* to?

Did you meet or exceed your goals?

If you fell a little short, this story may help you...

A scorpion was wandering along the bank of a river, wondering how to get to the other side.

Suddenly he saw a turtle. He asked the turtle to take him across the river.  The turtle said, "No. If I do that, you'll sting me and I'll drown."

The scorpion assured him, "If I did that, we'd both drown."  The turtle thought about it and finally agreed.

So the scorpion climbed up on his back and the turtle began to swim.  As they started across the river, the scorpion tried to sting the turtle but couldn't get through his hard shell.

The scorpion tried again and again until after many failures he stopped.  When they safely reached the other side the turtle turned to the scorpion and said, "Why did you do that? You would have drowned too."

"I just couldn't help it," said the scorpion. "It's my nature."

The turtle replied, "Then it's a good thing I came along ... it's my nature that saved you from drowning."

Sometimes it's our own nature that gets in the way of making effective change.

Perhaps it would be easier if you didn't attempt it alone.

Attend my free conference call on Friday April 4th at 1:30 PM Eastern.
