SETTING A GOAL!

Setting A Goal                                                                                                                                                      By Mike Pallin, Floyd Wickman Team How do I go about setting an income goal for next year?  Each of us begins the year with a hope, or a wish, or a dream, or a desire, or an expectation – but only 5% of the general population actually begins the year with a specific, measurable, written goal. And, if the experts are to be believed, only 5% of that 5% actually track activity and results throughout the year, stay on track, and achieve their goals.  So if the odds are that slim, why even bother?

Delegate!

Delegate!                                                                                                                                                            By Floyd Wickman, Chairman and Founder of The Floyd Wickman Team, LLC I love woodworking because I enjoy every step of conceiving a project: selecting the tools, buying the wood and hardware, cutting, assembling, sanding and finishing. Looking back on a completed project, there’s something very satisfying about knowing that you’ve done it all yourself.  I don’t really care how long it takes, or how much it costs, because it is a labor of love.

What do you do when your morale is at an all time low? When production has ground to a halt? When your life feels like a dumpster fire?  Floyd encountered a turnaround expert toward the end of his first year in real estate.

Common Sense Safety

Common Sense Safety                                                                                                                                  By Mike Pallin, Master Trainer and President of The Floyd Wickman Team I asked my students, “She went out to show a vacant house to an unknown person at dusk – What was she thinking?”  The answer I received was, “She was thinking what we have been trained to think – When the phone rings with an inquiry, get in the car and go. I need to make a living. I want to feed my family and fund my retirement and put my kids through school.”  And she did a lot of the right things. She

WILLINGNESS

WILLINGNESS                                                                                                                                                   By Mike Pallin, Floyd Wickman Master Trainer and Floyd Wickman Team President  “The cheerful readiness to do something.” –Merriam-Webster  “A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.” –Rudyard Kipling  Browsing the non-fiction section at the local library, I picked up a new book and read the Table Of Contents. One of the chapters was entitled, “How To Persuade People Who Don’t Want To Be Persuaded.” It was the next to last chapter, but the title was so intriguing I had to read it first. The point was you can’t persuade anyone to do anything
