When It All Lines Up

Sometimes things just seem clear.

You understand the instructions. The directions just seem to make sense. The words come out right.

Sometimes the exercise seems effortless, the beer hits the spot or the traffic lights all turn green as you’re approaching.

Isn’t it awesome when things just seem to line up in your favor?

A Day of Synchronicity

171717Today my odometer hit 171717 miles.

There’s nothing specific about this number but the uniformity of it caught my eye. I seem to sense patterns as they happen, like today on the golf course when, in the first 5 holes, my scorecard had a 5,6,4,7,2. All I needed was a 3 and a 1 for a natural “straight” but alas, I didn’t make a 3 and a 1 on the next two holes.

So was my odometer hitting this number a sign of anything? I doubt it…but 15 minutes later my family got back from a week-long vacation in Hilton Head, South Carolina so that was nice.

How often are you looking for signs?

Are you picking up signals from close friends or neighbors that they might be ready for a move?

Do you read between the lines on social networks to see if someone might have a life change in their near future? Babies? Marriage? Job promotion? Divorce? Death in the family?

Ever been lost and you suddenly see a FSBO sign in the front yard of a home nearby?

Have you ever had clients tell you they know “this is the one”?

Don’t you love those days when your words just seem to hit the clients exactly the way the need to hear it?

When It All Lines Up

What are you doing to stay “in sync” so everything lines up the way you need it to? If you drive your car 170,000+ miles you’ll eventually hit 171717.When you put yourself in enough places, you’ll eventually end up in the right place at the right time.

I’m a big believer that, in real estate, “everything happens for a reason.”

That usually happens when it all lines up.

Maybe next week your efforts to build relationships, solve problems and have fun will the combination you’ve been looking for.
