DIRECTION, NOT INTENTION, DETERMINES DESTINATION
Not too long ago I heard one of my favorite leaders say these words: “Direction, not intention, determines your destination”. That stuck with me. I don’t know about you but seems daily I battle keeping my mind and feet on a path toward productivity vs just activity. You may have heard me say in past newsletters that Your Routine = Your Results. For me to ensure the right direction of being productive and valuing others each day I need to examine my habits. As you know, we can create and establish effective and productive habits but also develop bad habits.
So, as I began working on HOW to better help myself, my team and you as we head in to a new year, I began by looking at MY habits. It is amazing how you can start out with a great routine of good habits but over time - drift. To hedge against that, I looked back at the habits of the most effective people.
You may or may not have ever read Stephen Covey’s best-selling book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,
if not, you should get a copy and read it. If you have, it could be time for a refresher… depending on whether you are happy with your direction or concerned your current path may not 100% end at your desired destination in life.
In the book, Covey presents an approach to being effective in attaining goals by aligning oneself to what he calls "true north" principles based on a character ethic that he presents as universal and timeless. Most people believe they have good ethics, but again, if the outcomes or results we are getting from our daily routines are NOT what we want… we must realize something isn’t quite right. How effective are you at obtaining desired results? [READ MORE]
WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
I could not recommend Michelle and Northwest Home Team Realty any higher. My wife and I had a wonderful experience working with her, and can say with confidence that you will be well served and wholly satisfied if you choose to work with Michelle. In complete honesty, we felt like we were working with a close friend. Michelle took the time to get to know us and our family, fully understood our tastes and preferences, and was honest about her thoughts on how various homes hit or missed the target
Our home search experience with Matt was informative, diverse, exciting, hopeful, disappointing, challenging, successful and very fulfilling. Matt is knowledgeable, well connected and sincere in his commitment to finding the right fit for his clients. His experience, both professionally and personally, make the sometimes grueling process an adventure. Availability on short notice was especially impressive. Communication, follow up and technical assistance are qualities that Matt is well versed in. We have high regards for Matt and the Northwest Home Realty Team.
Eric has a great, positive attitude, is very responsive and is easy to work with. Hindsight is 20/20, of course, but our beach home might have sold faster if we had used Eric’s estimate for the initial asking price and also if he had helped us earlier than he did to improve the view. Which he did.
