I was reading an article this morning called “3 Things You Can’t Afford a ‘Wait & See’ Attitude About in 2014,” written by PJ Wade, and I wanted to share this excerpt regarding exceeding expectations:
“The best way to exceed expectations is to stop making excuses. Excuses are poison to progress. I’ve always maintained that “many reasons, no excuses” is the best approach for consumers and professionals alike. Understand why things did not work and look for ways to improve results when the next opportunity arises. Spend your creativity on great excuses and you’ve accomplished nothing except wasting time and opportunity. Be determined to meet and exceed your expectations of a newly-renovated home, home ownership, or whatever real estate results you value – no excuses.”
As our technology has allowed us to get the quick fix results we want in, I find that instead of trying to understand what didn’t work in a situation we just move on instead of reviewing the situation and seeing how we can improve our game plan to better the turn out next time the same circumstance may arise”
Although this article is geared towards real estate, we can all use this approach in all aspects of our lives. What do you think? Will you exceed your expectations this year?
