I have a large list of things (goals) I want to accomplish. I scratch off 4, 5 6 things every day & I add stuff constantly. If my list ever goes down to nothing that means I am no longer active, so I hope I never accomplish it all.

my goal on the marketing end is to create a postcard that will make the phone ring and focuses on the homeowner....it's all about the client not the agents....

 

I don't set goals for the team members...they know what we need to do to maintain our position in the marketplace.... they PUSH IT.... HARD.

Yes!  I do both but believe that if the vision isn't a "stretch" than I am less likely to attain it.  I get bored easily and if something doesn't require developing new skills and growth, than I have been known to abandon it and instead chase down the next SQUIRRELLLLL!!!!!

my number one goal is to have the happiest clients.  I strive for the stars with that one.

My production goals are always "do better than same period last year" and most years I do that.  in 2009 that was not the case as we were in the biggest year of decline and had the most inventory.

Goals? What goals? I don't set no stinkin' goals! Like Ryan Huggins - Thousand Oaks, CA I stopped that when I left the corporate world and have done pretty well and then some since. That's a bit like asking we about New Year resolutions... I don't set no stinkin' resolutions either! And I'm a much happier person for that.

Both, we focus on two metrics, closed homes and dollar earned volume. We want to make those goals by the end of the third quarter. Makes the 4th quarter more fun.

I believe this discussion, to be healthy, must begin with knowing the difference between appropriate goals and inappropriate goals.

Appropriate goal - call or greet five new ppl every day in July.

Inappropriate goal - double my income in 18 months.

An appropriate goal is one where you control the elements that result in the outcome.

An inappropreate goal is when one does not have control over the elements that determine the outcome.

In nearly every case 'income' is the result of acheiving many appropriate goals.

Reaching for the stars is great for a self-talk in front of a mirror but have no place in appropriate goal setting.
