In Episode 138 of the Wandering But Not Lost Podcast, co-hosts, Jan O’Brien & Matt Emerson continue their month-long series on Business Planning. Last week we discovered our Q4 superpower and this week we get into the plan by setting our 2021 goals.
Real Estate Business Planning and Goal Setting is a topic I love to teach and share with real estate professionals. In my 28+ years in the real estate industry, it has been my experience that the agents who actually write down their goals and utilize a real business plan always meet and usually exceed their desired outcomes.
Unfortunately, less than 20% (probably closer to 10%) of real estate agents actually prepare a written business plan and set annual goals. I have witnessed the amazing results of those who actually create and use a business plan and set goals in all areas of their life. Statistics and various reports state that about 3% of adults have clearly written goals and accomplish 5 to 10 times more than those who do not have written goals. The 80/20 principle applies to everything - just become aware and observe the multitude of examples (Read Living the 80/20 Way Work Less, Worry Less, Succeed More, Enjoy More):
Here's your challenge... Are you ready, willing, and able to join the success group (the less than 20%)? Are you willing to do the opposite of what the masses usually do and achieve your desired outcomes? If you are ready... start today by following these 3 Steps to Business Planning and Take Action!
It all starts by writing your goals or desired outcomes, creating a written business plan, and updating/revising your business budget then measuring and tracking your results. I invite you to follow the 3 steps outlined below, download the accompanying forms and... JUST DO IT!
