Times like these require a reset.

For me, I’ve boiled things down to three new rules that are guiding my every move.

You may have seen me share this on Insta or Facebook, but I wanted to use today’s #TomFerryShow to dig deeper and really explain how these three rules can dictate what’s really important for you and your business in these extraordinary times.

Let’s get started…

New Rule No. 1: Safety First

Safety can be separated into three categories for me.

First and foremost, the human race battling a highly contagious virus means there’s more at stake than stalled listings and reluctant consumers.

So we all should be focused on is the safety of ourselves, our clients and our communities.

Even if real estate is deemed essential business, that doesn’t allow you to conduct “business as usual.” Please follow the guidelines and orders from your broker, your association, your city or town, your county, state or country. Be safe and be smart.

The second part of safety is keeping yourself healthy by taking your MEDS: Meditation, Exercise, Diet and Sleep.

If you’re not well… if you’re not strong, you can’t step up to the be the leader your community needs right now.

The third component of safety is making sure your finances are in order, both for yourself and for your community at large – think of those small business owners in your community who you can help by speaking with your banker and providing the right information people need now. Take the initiative and provide that leadership!
