Does Your Environment Support Your Career Goals?

If you have major goals for your career, you need to have a workspace that helps you reach them. Here is the impact that your environment can have on your work.

If you’ve got big goals that you’d like to accomplish, whether that means financial goals or a change you want to make in the world, real estate is one of the vehicles that will help you reach them.

One of the challenges of real estate, however, is when our environment doesn’t support our goals. When I work from home, for example, sometimes I find myself distracted by the needs of the house or projects that I’ve put off.

In addition to the physical challenges or your work environment, the social environment is key as well. Another challenge I face when working at home is the fact that I’ve got two little kids who need me and want my attention. I love them and I love giving them the attention they need, but when it comes time to work, it becomes a hindrance to getting that work done quickly and effectively.

So, look at your environment. Do you have people around you who are encouraging you, pushing you, and challenging you to be the best that you can be and do the best that you can? Do you have people who are holding you accountable? Accountability for our team is a two-part equation—we ask ourselves, “Did we do what we said we were going to do?” If we didn’t, then a leader comes alongside of us to help us accomplish those goals.

Do you have people in your environment holding you accountable?

The other aspect to pay attention to is your physical environment. An environment that is distraction-free and is clearly focused on the task you have in front of you will help you finish the tasks that you set out to accomplish.

When we get into certain kinds of environments, we know how to behave. For example, when we walk into a library, we know we have to be quiet, or when we walk into a sports stadium, we know we have to be loud. Do you have a physical environment that focuses your mind and body on generating new business for your real estate?

When your environment supports your goals, there’s no limit to what you can achieve. If there is any way that we can help you reach your goals and craft an environment that helps you get there, give me a call or send me an email. I’d be happy to help you!
