Want to kick ass in real estate? Forget goals...create habits instead.

Posted by Dave Crumby on Sep 1, 2017 8:03:00 AM

What’s on your list of life accomplishments? Those milestones big and small that you think, I’ll get to that one day? For some, it’s starting a family. Building your business. Climbing Everest (I just did my first 14er this summer). Completing a triathlon. Writing a book.

Each of these requires a clear vision of the goal, but more importantly, the willingness to create healthy habits toward progress. We are a goal-focused culture...and this may be working against us.

Building Your Real Estate Business…for Life

Posted by Dave Crumby on Aug 24, 2017 11:57:32 AM

This week, I spoke at the industry event Best Conference Ever. It was organized by Lee Adkins, David Lightburn, and Maura Neill.

Building something like this didn't happen overnight—they put in a lot of work. It wasn't just the logistics of pulling all of the pieces together to put on a show, but also the years of relationship-building it took to gather this group of speakers, sponsors, and attendees.

Success takes time. And a lot of hard work.

Us Realvolvers work hard and play hard.

Having a Plan For Your Day and Your Real Estate Business

I took this photo this morning and it got me thinking about life...

Every morning I wake up at 4:30 am and drive over to this trailhead for a quick hike. It's roughly a 3.5 mile loop and takes about an hour. Perfect way to wake up and get some quiet time/meditation before the day starts.  

Out of my 3.5 mile hike, the 'beautiful moment' in this pic only lasts a few minutes... then it's gone.
 
So for the   65 minutes this hike takes... only 5 minutes or so makes you want to stop and appreciate the beauty. That means roughly 96% of the morning walk is a whole lot of average where I'm on autopilot.

The Magic of ‘108’ In Real Estate

Posted by Dave Crumby on Jun 7, 2017 9:02:00 AM

On Sunday morning, I was making breakfast for my family. Inside the carton of eggs was a note from the farmer. It shared the secret to happy, healthy hens that produce healthy eggs...and that secret resided in the number 108.

“The Certified Humane® pasture-raised standards that we follow state that 108 sqft. per hen is the minimum needed to keep both hens and grasses healthy, a number that comes from well researched studies into flock densities and soil management.” [Click to read the entire note.]

But 108 also happens to be a magic number.
