Pete Lorimer Podcast - The Power Of The Pause

Pete Lorimer Podcast - The Power Of The Pause

This is a mantra super close to my heart, as I’ve implemented in my daily life for over two decades now.  That’s how effective it is.  We all experience instances where we are questioning ourselves in terms of what we are doing, where we are going in life, what’s happening with the people around us, etc.  We all get in situations where we become overemotional and our judgment gets a bit clouded.  For example: Is my client working with another realtor? The person I’m working with on this deal just really pissed me off, etc.   The way to handle any of these situations is simple… just PAUSE.  The Power Of The Pause will save you from making big mistakes, possibly ruining relationships and veering off your path. 

A few rules for when you find yourself wanting to react to something that’s got you riled up or filled with doubt.  Stop, take a breather and remember… 

-    If it’s a good idea now, it’s still going to feel like a good idea the next morning.

-    If we react too quickly it’s saying that we don’t trust the person we are dealing with, or that we don’t trust ourselves.

-    Sometimes things are time sensitive and we don’t have a whole day to sit on it, but we can always take SOME time.  Take an hour to calm down and then reassess. 

The Power Of The Pause is a life tactic I implore you to adopt.  You’ll be stunned at how much second-guessing it will settle within yourself and just how many negative situations it will help you avoid getting yourself into!  Trust me.

I really appreciate all of the responses.  Thanks for listening AND for being part of the rebellion.

Cheers

Pete

Move Fast and Break Things - Being Decisive in Business - Monday Mantra

Move Fast and Break Things - Being Decisive in Business - Monday Mantra

In this weeks Mantra its all about speed. Although we live in the fastest pace environment of all time, still, I see that business owners are paralyzed by indecision which ultimately means the demise of many of their business'.

For me, gut instinct has played an unfathomably important role for me as a business owner. The ability to make swift decisions I feel has contributed to my agility to trend spot and not get bogged down in the weeds with the smallest of details. So moving fast ultimately means that things will get broken along the way, but that's par for the course.

And remember, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

Thanks very much for watching and for being part of the rebellion....
