The 3rd quarter is coming to an end! One quarter left to hit those goals you set for 2019. How are you doing?
We are entering one of the best seasons for building your business!
The more you do now, the better you will be sitting as you enter the Holiday Season.
Here are a few suggestions on how you can transition from “back-to-school”, to building for a successful fall:
Focus on the positive
Think of all the things you love regarding what you do – finding the best properties, interacting with clients, helping both parties make the best deals, solving problems, innovating, being creative, working with your team – and then figure out how you can do more of that.
Let these positive feelings fuel your activities for the next quarter.
Focus on the negative
I’m a very positive person but I think there’s real value in examining the ‘negative’, or put a better way, thinking critically.
Look at what’s NOT good about your situation and then figure out what needs to happen to change it.
Focus on your goals
September is like a mini New Year. It’s a time to re-evaluate your goals, examine your activity, and make a plan for how to finish the year off strong.
The fall is also the time to start planning your goals for the next year, looking at what you need to do to get where you want to be.
What you do now will help you with a strong holiday season and help you gain momentum going into the new year.
Give your team a pep talk
Just like your principal started the school year with an assembly, you should hold one with your team at the end of the 3rd Quarter. Have a conference call or meeting with your team.
This is a good opportunity to bring people back together and remind them of the game plan ahead.
An event can help those people dragging their heels off vacation feel reinvigorated.
It can also be a subtle reminder that it’s time to get back to work and start building for the busy time of the year.
Meet with each key leader on your team
Are they feeling motivated and excited? Are they hitting their personal goals?
Taking the time to talk either one-on-one with the key builders on your team, or to your A-Team, keeps you better informed on what’s happening in your business and motivates your team by demonstrating you are engaged and interested.
