Sense of Accomplishment vs Sense of Failure

Question :  What are you doing Wednesday at 9:30am or Thursday at 9:30 am?


Goal setting gives you something to aspire to and it is often the baby steps that you take that gives you a sense of accomplishment of reaching that goal.  We are so lucky at The Real Estate Group to have brokers in our offices to give us the one on one training that we need to become successful in our real estate careers.

Don’t wait until the last minute to start planning your 2012 strategic planning!  Steve Edwards will be giving goal setting sessions this week to get us all headed in the right direction for 2012.
