279: Enough Preperation, It's Time To Take Action


While attending PodFest a week or so ago, I had the TV on in my hotel room and caught some of the analysis on for the AFC Championship game. As I listened, I thought how they spend so much time, so many hours preparing for the games that they almost run out of things to talk about. I’m an Eagles fan, so I’m thrilled that it will be the Eagles against the Chiefs for the Super Bowl, and I’m really hoping the Eagles will win. There have been thousands of hours of analysis to prepare the fans for the Super Bowl—imagine if they did all the analysis and had all the conversations, but didn’t play the game? That would be crazy—but this is a struggle I see Realtors having a lot. They think about what they can do to improve their business, but that’s ALL they do. They have talked and prepared and prayed and planned, but at some point it becomes time to stop preparing and take action. The time for analysis is over—it’s time to play the game. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about dreaming. If you’ve listened to my podcast for any length of time, you know I’ve probably got more ideas than anyone in the world. Even with all the plates I have spinning, there comes a time where I’ve processed enough and it’s time to get moving. I encourage you to do the same. Don’t have so many ideas that you don’t take action. I hope you can apply this to your real estate business. If you’ve been discussing and thinking for a long time, maybe you need to make that jump–make that decision. Make sure you’re moving forward. The biggest struggle is overthinking, and the only bad decision you can make is not making one. Stop overthinking and start making decisions. I hope this helps you in your business and I hope the Eagles win the Super Bowl. Go Birds.
