Start Strong

how making your bed will make you a successful realtor

“If you make your bed every morning you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride and it will encourage you to do another task and another and another.”

- Admiral William McRaven, 2014

Did we get your attention?

While making your bed may seem like a silly thing, to begin with, I wouldn’t argue with an Admiral, would you?

To work your day effectively and take control of your success in any business, most believe that you need to start strong. Starting strong begins with the small daily habits we do every day.


Waking-up & Making our Bed...maybe

Getting ready for the day

Eating breakfast…who has time for that


…and finally, starting work.


What do you do when you start your workday?


  • Get a coffee? Absolutely...unless you're a tea person

  • Open your email? Probably, what else can I do?

  • Look at your “list” of to-dos? Did I make one of these? What should be on it?

  • Check the market activity? How do I do this again? Maybe I should take a course on this again?

Whatever you do first, you should try to make it routine. Why? By doing the same thing to start your workday every day, you are building a habit of success. Even if it doesn't seem like the right thing to do, by starting in the same place every day you will be rolling in no time.
