Thoughts of the Day written by Key Yessaad as of August 25th 2012

The main ideas I shared in my posts in the past week focused on the relationship Real Estate Agents have with Time Management, Negative loops, the power of a clean desk, and how sometimes paralysis in Business can be caused by one’s lack of understanding towards one’s job. One of my continuing central themes is that many Real Estate Brokerages function without a proper Business Plan, while the successful growing ones have the right scaffolding of growth and prosperity.

Be Aware of your Negative Mental Loops

Posted by Key Yessaad on August 25, 2012

Approaching projects and tasks with at sense of irritation and trepidation suggests a buzzing of negativity hovering over one’s reality. Take this thought: ‘Why should even bother door knocking, I know it is a waste of time, and it never works for me!’ This is self-fulfilling negative loop that runs in your mind and absorbs most your potential opportunities. If you choose to nurture one of these thoughts you will notice that similar ‘icky’ t…

The importance of Feeling Good about Leaving Work

Posted by Key Yessaad on August 24, 2012

Leaving Work and Feeling Good about it… There is a special hour at the end of your workday that you know you must honor and leave work; an hour that will allow you to get in time for supper with your family; maybe play a game of basketball with your kids; or a time to chat and share with your spouse about the wrangling of life. Because many of you are in the Real Estate Business it will be very difficult for your to do so every single workday; so why not start small; pick…

Create Inflence for your Brand with your Testimonials

Posted by Key Yessaad on August 23, 2012

Are you validating the company you work for? or have you fallen into the trap of taking for granted that which is really close to you? I have had the privilege of meeting, and training many Real Estate Agents who truly love working for their brokerages, and they genuinely share those feelings with the people they work with; yet they fail to realize that we live in a Social Media connected world. For example, when was the last time you visited a broker website that had a page th…

Clear your Desk if you want to Rule your Business Empire

Posted by Key Yessaad on August 22, 2012

‘My Desk is Not a Filing Cabinet!’ ‘The Space under my Desk is not Permanent Storage!’ ‘The files on the window sills and the corners of my office have a better place in Filing Cabinets, and/or long term-storage!’ We all know that we break these rules daily, and few of us truly recognize that it takes a fraction of daily time to clear our desks. The angst to leave work for meetings, or head home at the end of the day is so alluring tha…

Get to Know your Job before you Tame it

Posted by Key Yessaad on August 21, 2012

The easiest time trap that most business professionals fall into is the one that says: ‘I’ll stay at work longer to finish my work;’ or the one that says: ‘let me take my work home to catch up over the weekend.’ If you were capable of doing so once in a long while that would be fine, unfortunately most people turn this into a habit that starts hurting their families and quality of life. The other casualty of this time trap is your sleep; the less y…

Infinite loops of business paralysis

Posted by Key Yessaad on August 20, 2012

Being overwhelmed is a state of mind that takes hold when we create chained activities that work sequentially and dependently, and stop seeing them as parallel activities. You find yourself stuck in an infinite loop; example: You need to make sure you organize your files; but that means that you need to clean up your desk; but that means that you must put the notes on your desk in your computer; but that means that you must send emails to the people you are working with;…

Real Estate Agents Job Descriptions are Missing

Posted by Key Yessaad on August 19, 2012

There are Jobs and Business Ventures that seem obvious when you hear their title, and yet this assumption keeps some of its participants still unsure of what their job is, and how to thrive in it. Case in point: What is the Job of a Real Estate Agent? and No, making money is not a job description, it is a result of a job well done. Many brokers and managers assume that by virtue of hiring licensed agents they have hired a Sales force that knows their job description, and…
