Tony Martinez Shares How to Stay Sharp And Win
Learning is a lifelong endeavor. It shouldn’t stop once you throw a graduation cap into the air. In order to stay on top of your game you must continuously seek to improve upon your current skill set. You could very well be on the top of your game, but that won't last for long if you don't’ take strides now to prevent a lull or even a down turn. Or, you could be in that lull right now, in either case the points I outline below will help you appreciably.
By seeking out methods that allow you to stay current and connected, you can increase your mental awareness and properly develop your mind for the challenges ahead. Fortunately, they’re easy traits and habits to establish. Here are some of our favorites at the US Tax Lien Association:
Read Business Self Help Books - This will allow you to stay current with business trends and learn how some of the industry's leading entrepreneurs think and act - and run their businesses. One great read is Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap...and Others Don’t by James C. Collins.
Control Your Subject Matter - Surround yourself with people who are enriching, and who have high level conversations. Listen to educational podcasts and informational news networks. Take a moment to control what you listen to.
Prepare yourself for change - The world around you is certainly changing daily. If you keep up with technology as you advance in your career, you’ll surely benefit and become an asset to those who don’t.
Set new goals for yourself - Yes, we write and say this often. But if you didn’t set goals continuously, how would you know where you were going in life? In your career? You wouldn’t, you’d likely stagnate and wake up one day wondering where all the years went.
Analyze your abilities - See if there are any areas where a new approach might be needed. It’s easy to get so immersed it’s tough to see where improvement is needed. So step back and analyze your everyday approach. Most importantly, surround yourself with good people who can lend constructive criticisms.
Stay grounded in reality - While you set your goals and set on learning new tasks, stay realistic. You won’t become a real estate guru in 6 months, but with this in mind along with your capabilities stay positive and don't settle for anything less than success.
