I just started reading "The Millionaire Real Estate Agent" by Gary Keller. Aim high, it says.
At 64, I figured I would be able to just coast for a while and retire. Now I find myself being prodded and encouraged to work 'til I'm 90. Am I too old to aim for Mt. Everest?
Then I think of my grandparents, who started a Christmas tree farm when they were 67, and I'm put to shame. My new goal is to work smarter, not longer. Get better organized and keep pushing. Sometimes I feel like the President because "the buck stops here." Now I must learn to delegate so I'm investing more time in training our assistants so there will be two or three of us tackling the list of things to do.
My New Year's resolution (in addition to losing weight) is to teach and delegate. Work on the systems that will keep everyone on track. Now that it's slower, this is a great time to re-assess your marketing, your systems, your whole organization. What worked before may not be working now.
Step back and take a look.
