After reading this article, I had a bit of a revelation.
I read it and realized that with our awesome team here at PL, we should be asking ourselves that every week. It's great to have goals and even if you don't nail it, at least you know you tried. Each Monday we ask “What can we do this week that we’ve never done before?”, and that Friday we'll have a quick stand-up meeting where everyone details whether or not they accomplished their goal. If they didn't achieve it, that's okay... but you gotta know why you didn't and what you need to do to improve.
These people are thinkers and do-ers. I know they have it in them to bring the awesome every week. Now they're going to find out for themselves. And yes, even though I already know I'm pretty awesome, I'm doing it right along with them. :)
We're going to change the way commercial real estate gets done. We have the plan; this will be the way we follow through. The nice thing is, we'll all be growing as people while we work as employees.
