๐Ÿ‘‹ Well, hello there!

It's been a while. It's hard to believe, but I sent the last edition of this newsletter on October 21, 2022. Why did I stop? In full transparency, I got sidetracked, took on several other projects and a week off turned into 15 months off.

Have you ever had that experience with something in an area of your life? Fitness, relationships, a hobby, or in your business?

Last month, I was reading an email that posed two interesting questions going into the new year...

  1. What drained your energy this year?
  2. What gave you energy this year?

The recommendation was then simple. Do less of the first thing and more of the second thing.

Publishing this newsletter is something that gives me a lot of energy, I get great feedback and I believe (and hope) that it delivers value to you - the reader. And so, I'm excited to resume the newsletter!

You. may have also noticed that the name of the newsletter changed to The Freedom Newsletter. Yes - this newsletter is still focused on helping you create a 7 Figure Real Estate Agent business that is predictable, profitable and fun.

Ultimately, though, the reason that most people want to create that business is to have more freedom in their lives - time freedom to do whatever you want, whenever you want, and money freedom to be able to do all of those things that you dream about.

Each week I hope to deliver value and actionable steps to help you achieve just that -- FREEDOM.

If that interests you, I hope you'll stick around. If not, you are of course welcome to unsubscribe at any time. And now on to the content...

๐Ÿ“ˆ New Year's Resolutions SUCK. Do THIS Instead.

If you're like most people, you probably set some New Year's Resolutions.

The three most common ones are: improve fitness, improve finances, and lose weight.

And if you're like most people, those resolutions won't last very long. In fact, failing at New Yearโ€™s resolutions is so common that thereโ€™s even some dates commemorating the failures: โ€œDitch New Yearโ€™s Resolutions Dayโ€ is January 17 and the second Friday in January is often called โ€œQuitterโ€™s Day.โ€

In my view, the reason that New Year's Resolutions suck is that the time period is way too long. A year is a REALLY long time to wrap your head around, and life quickly gets in the way of any yearlong goals or commitments that you may set.

Here's the way to actually achieve your goals this year:

Have a MUCH shorter time period. Although the calendar rolls over once per year, you can have your "new year" calendar change at any time that you want.

I was recently introduced to a great book on this topic by one of my business coaches, called The 12 Week Year.โ€‹

The concepts are simple (but not easy):

  • Make your "year" 12 weeks instead of a full calendar year.
  • Set your goals for that 12 week period as a standalone "year."
  • Create a weekly plan with only your commitments for that week.
  • Schedule those commitments into your calendar.
  • Keep score.

Of course, there's much more to the system but having a shorter time horizon may mean all the difference between achieving your goals and giving up by January 17th!

For my 12 Week Year starting January 1, 2024, I set goals in 3 areas:

  1. Personal commitments
  2. Business
  3. Health and Fitness

As an example of how this plan has already helped me, in health and fitness I committed to hitting the weight room three times this week. Although I scheduled the workouts, I had to miss one early in the week and by Thursday, I realized that I needed to add one back in to hit my goal, which I did for Friday morning. BOOM!

Another example - one of my personal commitments is a weekly date night with my wife. On Sunday when I set up that commitment, I immediately calendared it in for this Friday night!

Check out the book and reply to this email to let me know your goals and commitments for your 12 Week Year, should you choose to implement the system!

Have a great week!

Danny

๐Ÿ”‘ Quote of the week (and on topic...)

"The things you do daily create the results you achieve yearly.โ€
โ€“ 12 Week Year

๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ The Last Word...

I've heard a lot of real estate agents complaining lately. Complaining about the market, the interest rates, the decrease in transactions, low inventory, lawsuits, and more.

Remember that these are all external conditions over which you have no control.

For reference, two years ago many agents were complaining about multiple offers.

Should you be knowledgeable about market conditions? Of course!

Should you understand the legal, economic and other factors affecting real estate? Certainly!

Knowing those things helps you educate your clients and seize the opportunity presented in every type of market.

The key is to always focus on what YOU can control. Things like:

  • Your mindset
  • Your habits
  • Your activities

Remember that YOU control the type of business you create, and opportunity is everywhere!
