Thoughts on Leadership: Habits for Life

This week my travels find me in alignment sessions for our Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices and Real Living Real Estate brands.

Last week we kicked off “Habits Month,” a four-week excavation of the ideas put forth in James Clear’s book, “Atomic Habits.” In the previous post, we talked about what habits are and how habit formation can create the small wins that lead to positive outcomes. A small, positive action repeated enough times becomes automatic, subsumed into the non-conscious part of our brains and thus, a habit.

Thoughts on Leadership: Scorekeeping for Success

This week my travels find me in Northern California, working and taking time to recharge after a whirlwind week in Las Vegas for the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Sales Convention.

Thoughts on Leadership: Clear Your Mind

By Gino Blefari

This week my travels unexpectedly find me working from home, and not, as originally planned, meeting with our network members in Miami for the 2017 Summit Conference. The event was canceled due to Hurricane Irma and its impending destruction and my thoughts are with those in Florida currently dealing with the terrible aftermath of the storm. On behalf of our entire organization, our prayers go out to all of you.

The unanticipated change in schedule did afford me days to fall back into my usual routine, which starts with a 5 a.m. visit to Starbucks, my dog Kona by my feet, writing in my journal and doing my meditation and prayers.
