One Habit: How No Lead Left Behind Can Double Your Production [Repost]

Summary: One habit can double your production in the next 12 months.  A defined No Lead Left Behind process forces you to prioritize, increases your conversion rate, builds future pipeline and gives you a real value proposition.  

The keystone holds the arch up. Without it, the entire structure is compromised. With it, you can build the production team of your dreams. Running a successful business is an art and science: the science is discovering the right thing, and the art is making a habit of doing it every day. 

Charles Duhigg said that “there’s nothing you can’t do if you get the habits right.” Establishing one habit creates a trickle down effect. It creates systematic improvement in your entire business. What if I told you there’s one habit that when turned into a business discipline will double your business in the next 12 months? The No Lead Left Behind habit can do exactly that.

Using Simple Rules To Build Your Team

Some producers have cracked the generating business code. It is a tough one.  It takes a lot of hard work, a bit of eccentricity and persistence. Those that land at the top of the mountain report the view is good, but it is lonely.

The reality is that the skills you employed to earn Top Dog status become liabilities at scale. Your brilliant “on the fly” and “solopreneur” decision models impact people, impact processes and impact your growth. One underutilized management tool in the world of top performing real estate pros is the simple rule. Before you jump to the conclusion that this is the most ridiculous blog post ever penned, hear me out.

The E-Myth (HarperCollins, 1990)

In this first new and totally revised edition of the 150,000-copy underground bestseller, The E-Myth, Michael Gerber dispels the myths surrounding starting your own business and shows how commonplace assumptions can get in the way of running a business. He walks you through the steps in the life of a business from entrepreneurial infancy, through adolescent growing pains, to the mature entrepreneurial perspective, the guiding light of all businesses that succeed. He then shows how to apply the lessons of franchising to any business whether or not it is a franchise. Finally, Gerber draws the vital, often overlooked distinction between working on your business and working in your business. After you have read The E-Myth Revisited, you will truly be able to grow your business in a predictable and productive way.

Checklist Manifesto (Picador)

I loved this read.  I have read the E-Myth several times and use it as a reference regularly.  This book really helped me solidify my checklist strategy.    My biggest takeaway was how the medical profession builds checklist for even the most skilled positions.   It is difficult to create something a checklist with enough flexibility to allow people to solve problems.   Learn how with Mr. Gawande.

Enjoy!
