Podcast: When the going gets tough, the smart leave!

Sometimes you're simply not in a position to solve a particular problem

Future-Proof: Navigate Threats, Seize Opportunities at ICNY 2018 | Jan 22-26 at the Marriott Marquis, Times Square, New York

Takeaways:

  • Most of us have a “toolbox” of strategies, techniques and scripts that we use.
  • If that toolbox is limited, we may keep using the same failed strategy repeatedly because it’s easy.
  • You need to learn what you’re capable of taking on and what your own personal limits are.

Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is the definition of insanity. In real estate, most of us have a “toolbox” of strategies, techniques and scripts that we use — and if that toolbox is limited, we may keep using the same failed strategy repeatedly because it’s easy or because we don’t have anything else we can try.

Sometimes, trying another approach to solving your problems is what’s required — other times, you’re simply not in a position to solve a particular problem, or solving it isn’t beneficial to your personal and financial well-being. You need to learn what you’re capable of taking on and what your own personal limits are.

Yes, being persistent is a valuable asset in our trade, but don’t mistake being downright stubborn for healthy persistence. When the going gets tough, the tough leave — and in today’s show, we’re discussing how you can make better decisions about when to hold ’em, fold ’em or just downright walk away.
