Food for Thought as We Look Toward the Beginning of Another Year

Filed under: Tips for Realtors

As we are approaching the New Year, I wanted to share a relevant thought. This a great opportunity to think about our plans for the year and how we intend to act. The idea is that there are 7 key parts to leadership, and we can focus on these characteristics to develop ourselves in 2023 and beyond:

  1. Character: Who are you? What are your actions, thoughts, and habits? These are the things that really make a massive difference.
  2. Relationships: Who do you know? How deep are your relationships?
  3. Knowledge: What do you know? What experience do you have?
  4. Intuition: How is your intuition? This is something that gets honed over time. It’s easy to question the silent voice, that sometimes you just need to trust.
  5. Experience: Where you’ve been and what you know.
  6. Past Successes: These things make a huge difference, giving you something to build on as you are moving forward.
  7. Ability: If you have the ability, then just go out and do the things to create opportunities.

I think it’s important to consider character traits and leadership as we are going into the New Year. Whether you are leading a team at work or leading your family at home, these factors can have an undeniable impact. The New Year is a great time to reboot and bring fresh thoughts to jump start motivation.
