Developing Your Skills For Maximum Career Growth

Today is a more exciting time then ever before in the real estate industry.  It has more opportunities to focus our energy on that will maximize our career for growth.

However, with a fire hose of new ideas coming at you almost daily it may feel a bit overwhelming at times.  The last thing you want to find yourself doing is integrating so many new ideas and not excelling at any of them.

1.  First and foremost, take an inventory of the areas you enjoy most in your real estate practice.  People always excel when they are passionate about something.

2.  Next, review your prior year in real estate and see how much income was derived from those sources of business.

3.  Rate your performance in those areas on a scale of 1 to 10…

  • 1 = Room for growth
  • 10 = I am a master

4.  We must evaluate our effectiveness and work towards mastery in the areas we enjoy first before we start  developing new skills.  I recommend the Malcolm Gladwell book “Outliers”, which is all about mastery.

Here are some of the benefits of this exercise.  First of all, you may find as you analyze your practice that you may need to strengthen your skills in the areas you enjoy most.

Or, You may find that you have uncovered the need for new business growth.

The goal is not to be at 100% over night this can be overwhelming, discouraging and can result in failure. Focus on slow and steady improvement instead of large monumental progress. Introducing one new skill into your practice at a time is much more beneficial and you can make a greater impact by making smaller steps. Keep working towards mastery of the new skill before introducing any other new business systems into your practice.

Since we are in the 2nd half of 2010, ask yourself this question?  “What are the top 2 things I need to integrate into my practice in the next 30 days that will make me more productive, and help to finish strong for the rest of 2010?”

Ideas:

Focus on providing rich content in your social media outlets.

Establish a consistent work routine, and implement it daily.

1._ Activity____ Date I will begin________, 2010

2.__Activity____ Date I will begin________, 2010

The momentum we build now in the second half of 2010 will fuel the growth and strength of your practice for 2011.  You must immerse yourself in professional and personal growth as well as development.

Growth is the result of listening, learning and daily execution.  This market is excellent for GROWTH.

So play BIG!
