“Do something today your future self will thank you for.”
I posted this quote on social media recently, and today I want to dive a little deeper into it.
The way I see it, you have a choice to make right now that will result in one of two outcomes…
You can emerge from this crisis as your best self or your broken self.
I’m guessing if you’re reading this, you’re the type who will aspire to becoming your best self.
But maybe you’re having a hard time knowing what to do or getting into action.
So today I’m sharing with you five simple actions that will move you closer to that goal.
Don’t let your “future self” regret how you spent this time.
Let’s get started…
Action Step No. 1: Make Your Calls
It’s one thing if you pulled back on making your calls when this crisis first began due to all of the uncertainty.
But by now you should have seen plenty of evidence that transactions are being done and that it’s your responsibility to be “loading your cannon” for when things return to normal.
So reach out to people. Check in on them. Educate and inform them about what’s happening both on the national scope and in their neighborhood.
Don’t get me wrong – it’s not “business as usual.” Your tone and scripts need a new approach during these times. But whatever you do, you can’t simply disappear.
Quick story: A couple weeks ago I was notified of an amazing agent named Judy Johnson who participated in a “virtual” private training event I conducted for the William Raveis company. Judy is a longtime real estate professional who is 93 years young and realized in that training session that she had stopped making her calls during this health crisis. Suddenly inspired, she set a goal to reach out to at least 10 people in her database via phone or text every day. And as a result, she says she feels better to be talking to people and her clients have been thrilled to hear from her.
So what’s the moral? #BeLikeJudy
The more you talk to people, the more you provide answers and insight, the more appointments and consultations you conduct now… the more your future self will thank you.
Action Step No. 2: Sharpen Your Axe
If you’ve ever told yourself, “I’d love to learn __________ but I just don’t have the time,” you’re going to kick yourself if you don’t capitalize on this moment to finally grow your knowledge base.
It doesn’t even have to be something monumental… just make sure you’re improving yourself during this time, instead of shrinking in this moment.
If you need suggestions, well… $99/mo. will get you access to tons of webinars we’ve done and resources we’ve created over the last four+ weeks in our new Pivot program.
We’ve also transitioned our Marketing Edge and Sales Edge events to the “virtual” environment so you can take a deep dive into either subject from your own computer, phone or tablet. Click those links for upcoming dates.
Or there’s gotta be a book you’ve wanted to read. So read it!
Your future self will thank you for your actions today… and regret your inactions as well!
