It has me thinking about some of the numbers that might affect on your success.
Let's break down some of the numbers...
40 = The number of days behind us in 2011
325 = The numbers of days left in 2011
11% - The percentage of the year that is behind us
89% - The percentage of days left to make something happen
80/20 - Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto has been credited with observing that 80% of one's success comes from 20% of one's efforts. Are you focusing your time, effort, energy and money on the right 20%?
24 - The hours in a day. Stop wishing for more to suddenly appear because you "need" them. Instead, get better at managing and prioritizing your time.
20 - The average business days in a given month. What's your balance of "business development" activities each day compared to the "business support" activities that you're working on? How many people are you talking to on a daily basis to achieve your business goals? How many appointments did you have so far this week?
8 - Day a week? Sorry, not unless you're the Beatles. It's a great idea to take one day off each week to rest up and get revived so you can be your best.
7 - Second presentation. Are you comfortable with the most usable dialogue in real estate?
"Would you do me a favor?
"I'd like to give you a few of my business cards and if you meet someone who has any questions about real estate, would you ask them to give me a call?
"Thanks. I truly appreciate your time."
3 - Things to focus on each day - Building relationships, solving problems and having fun
2 - As in "2-Day" as in "today." What will you accomplish today to get you closer to your goal?
1 - The number of people responsible for your ultimate success for failure. That's Y-O-U!
Oh yeah...there's one more number.
110 - The percent effort you must be willing to give.
Now take a minute to double check your answers before turning in your paper.
