“If not us, who? If not now, when?
- John F. Kennedy
New Year is about new beginnings, hope and determination...
and maybe this time, succeed in seeing through our many resolutions.
"If not us, who? If not now, when?"
I've got my goals for 2016.
1. Be more present for my kids. Don't come home from a long day and immediately dive into more work or phone calls which happened in 2015 more times than I care to admit. It can wait. My kids cannot wait - at 4 and nearly 7, they are at an age where they are still happy to see me :) They deserve better than a distracted Dad, especially when we haven't seen each other all day.
2. Close 30 transactions which would double my production level of 2015. That is a lot of prospecting, networking, hustling and being efficient with my time. Setting a goal to accomplish twice as much work might seem ambitious but then again I know I'm at least twice the agent I was a year ago.
3. Lose 20 pounds and keep it off. So simple yet so difficult. Eat better, drink less and exercise more. I don't think the first 10 will be terribly difficult but the next 10 will be a bear. But that's ok. Challenge accepted.
4. Be more environmentally aware of my actions. Don't waste food. Use water sparingly. Recycle more. Turn off the lights. Don't keep the engine running when I'm waiting for a client to show up at a house. Walk more, drive less.
What are your goals and dreams for 2016? You can accomplish anything you set your mind to - you know that, it's within you. Remember.
If not us, who? If not now, when?
