Focus on Fall

Seems the whole world has shifted into another energy field as September has rolled in, the kids are back in school and the weather is cooling....It seems natural to take a cue from the universe and do some re-evaluating and shifting with our businesses.

 It's a good time to look out to the end of the year and back from the beginning to assess

•·       where you are and what you are committed to accomplishing by year's end.

•·       What are you doing that is REMARKABLE?

•·       What is working?

•·       What can you add?

For many of my clients, I find we are being patient with the trust and knowledge that good, solid business connections are being made and the seeds that are being planted are going to break through the crusty surface. Now is no time to get resigned or to stop expanding.

I like the whole concept of being REMARKABLE... Thinking that you are doing something that is unusual enough people are remarking on it!

Brings us back to the concept of being ordinary or extraordinary.... Which will you be this fall?


There is a shop I pass when I go into town that has a sign that says "We refuse to participate in the recession." That's remarkable! I keep talking to people who are trying to convince me that it's going to take years for things are awful to get back to "normal." That is one possible view you can espouse.... if it makes you feel good....but I find, I feel better when I look at what I CAN do...and believe that there are buyers and sellers who can make things work. Because, in my world, THERE ARE! Some people are complacently letting the market control their dominant thoughts and some are thinking REMARKABLE thoughts. Which makes you feel better?


The interesting thing about this inquiry is that there are people who are much more comfortable having reasons why they can't find the success they want right now, than they are at taking steps to accept what is and then re-contextualizing the meaning of the circumstances. So, your circumstances can give you a reason to give up and to have some drama in your life that others will sympathize with you over. In fact, it is more "normal" to do this. Or, your circumstances can pull you into exciting, creative action that is remarkable. It's your choice. Which kind of person do you want to be?

More on the Focus part....

Use Joeann's Rule of 3:

What three things, if I did them today, would make the most difference in my long term goals?



Write those on a sticky and keep them with you all day and keep going back to executing THOSE!
Have a Remarkable Week!

Joeann, I feel like my team is working your message.  We are evaluting some marketing items, changing and rededicating ourselves to some, dropping others.  We are Remarkable!

When I look at the make up of the word remarkable and break it down I define it as the ability to make a mark that will repeat itself.  I hope that as a wife, mother, sister, grandmother, daughter..., realtor and most of all believer in God that people will be able to repeat a mark that I made on them or others while I was traversing my road in life!
