259: You're Only Doing 90%


This past November, at the Total Life Freedom Retreat, my friend Barry Karch shared the concept that you are only doing 90%—you’re doing so well in so many things, but you’re not completing anything to 100%. There was a Realtor there that was doing a bunch of different things well in their business, but there were some things that they weren’t doing as well. This Realtor had a ton of great ideas—tons of things that they started, but very few things that they finished, so Barry pointed out that they were only doing 90% of the work. We all do this, right? We start something, but never finish. Imagine that it’s December 26th…imagine stopping the year today. Imagine December 26th deciding you’re done—you’re not doing anything the rest of the year. That is what so many people do in their business—they get so close to the end and then just stop. Barry compared it to running a marathon where you only run 26.2 miles. Imagine running for three or four hours, 26 miles, and not crossing the finish line that you can see in the distance. It’s silly, but so many of us are doing that in our real estate business. We are not following projects through to completion. This sabotages your real estate business. Think about this in your business—have you had success this year or have you struggled? What were things you wanted to achieve? We’re here in the last week of 2022—what are things you wanted to achieve but didn’t? Why not? Finish the race—go the full hundred percent and give it your best effort. If you want to have success in your real estate business, you don’t stop at 90%, you finish it to completion.
