Get Ready, The Run Forrest Run End Of Year Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda.

(Looking, glancing at watch) Every year, right about... now, here it comes.

Part of it is News Years and what are your plans that eve? The end of the year in whatever career. The sense of the approaching, next calendar set of a dozen months. You are going to try this, this and a dash of that.

Adjusting, moving the dials just a smidgen, a whisker hair change.

Or with frustration and bull in the china closet. Oh would you just give me that thing already? A heck of a yank force applied. To change where it is needed in your real estate, mortgage lending, staging, home inspection, insurance or whatever the field you call your career. The spot in the surroundings, under the sun during the day, the moon at night that you are suppose to be. Not just find yourself while waiting for the next one to arrive right on schedule.

Run Forrest, Just Run Your Heart Out. Get away, far far from the negative elements that paralyze, make you freeze. Come up short in the brief blur of life.


Get away from whatever holds you back.

That makes you start to doubt if you really are the fastest runner in the race but tied your own hands, legs, both feet. To not be at all what you can really, truly be. As Uncle Sam motivates, reminds with the atta boy, go get 'em sport. 

(Ten round starting bell rings, fighter helped off the small, low to the mat stool, forehead wiped, mouth-guard pushed back in hard, as the crowd selects it's champion. Alternating between each of the pair members depending how the winds of change blow in the knock down, drag out fight to come out on top. For now.)

So how did the list of New Year's Resolutions work out the last time when you eyeballed, studied and reviewed them one by one? Dusted them off, gave them the once over.

Oh. Okay. Duly noted. Gotcha. Hear you loud and clear. But. This year things will be different. (Sucking in gut, side view of receding graying hair line, review of extra neck warmer layer, choker of chin skin shirt collar overlap.)

Where is that gym membership discount coupon honey? Determination, guts, reaching for all the glory. The motivation in real estate, where does it come from to be highly creative? Changing it up to make it new and different, reinvented. And what if Forrest Gump's mom had been a real estate professional?

Hi Andrew.  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome.  Super blog.

CA ... Thanks. This coffee is rocket fuel. If you don't have fun in what you do for work, play, in betweeen, it is only you blame. Make today count my friend. Shop til you drop. Black Friday, pace yourself in the knee deep and beyond discounts. Don't let them get away right?

Andrew, I'm running as fast as I can, though not sure where I'm going.

Very inspirational and motivational post the film clip.

Gabe ... We have more than enough inside to do great things. Make it extra ordinary. The others around that can make us insecure, hold us back is our own choice. Surround yourselves with loving, supporting people and be that flavor too with the others you cherish, respect, are glad you know in your circle of trust.

Roger. Roger. It is sobering, self righting when you go off course. Put it all in perspective, you have more than enough to achieve it all. But. The time that is wasted, work on making it count and you have more than others that don't daily. That's what my dearly departed mother preached, practiced in her gratitude is riches guidance, shepherding. Ditch the stinking thinking.

Good morning Andrew,

You are so right..ditch the stinking thinking that holds one back! I loved Conrad Allen's comment.....The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome. Fantastic blog!!!

Andrew, I'm always telling myself run Bob run and each year my new year resolutions get stretched but without goals I would be walking in slow motion.

Have a beautiful Black Friday....

DD ... Come at problems, situations from another angle. If there are road blocks or you are having night sweats, tossing and turning over them. Rather than peacefully sawing logs.

BR ... Learning to relax, have fun is key too. Kids help you never ever forget how to have fun.

The year end rush is on the close out the business for 2014 . . .  . and a number of buyers that have been holding off are getting off the fence.

Go customers go . . . . now is the time to get off the fence.

Good luck and success.

Great post Andrew.  In our office we are taught a phrase to use when confronted with negative people who just suck the time and energy out of the room.  "Tell me something good"  This usually stops them, but if it doesn't you can repeat or just walk away.

LL .. Sit on that long split rail fence too long as a rent rut dweller and those long painful splinters just get harder to extract.

LL .. More pair of double L's. Eeyore's happen. Some enjoy poor health, whining and not being grateful for the sheer attention of it all. Self absorbed shuts the doors and windows to seeing it is all about others. Not poor me, myself and I.

Great post, Andrew!    Time to concentrate on the year ahead - I have been too focused on the 4 years ahead.   I actually don't make resolutions, but have a business plan.   Don't know what the diff is, though....

have a great day!

Is it really that time already, Andrew?  Looks like I'm going to have to get the calendar out and make time for 2015.
