This is the time of year that we first start looking to see where we stand on our production goals. Statistics show that we should have closed or have in the pipeline as much as 40% of our entire year. Many of us suddenly have to wonder why we aren’t on pace to reach our goals. Others will say they are on track if they can simply continue as they have. For both, the determining factor is really the same, can we make the decisions to take the necessary action to pick up the pace and finish out the year strong. What actions are you willing to do to finish the year strong. Will you take the time to do those calls? How about getting out to do a pop-by to those important contacts? This time of the year sees many agents taking it back a notch because it is the beginning of summer, graduations are near, and summer vacations are at hand. While few are out there in our space, the time is ripe to make noise and make up ground. However, the point is if you aren’t prepared to take action, you won’t make up any ground and hit your goal. If you are still waiting to get it just right or still trying to figure out what you should do, don’t wait any longer. Make the decision to take action, move forward and find food. That’s right, it is a conscious decision that only you are in control of. If you don’t finish the year the way you wanted to and you didn’t take action each and every day, you have no one to blame but you. Remember, the legs feed the wolf and like the wolf you only eat if you run towards the prey. It is even better when there are fewer wolves to compete with.
