Be Like A Little Christmas Tree - Set Long Range Goals

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Real Estate Connections
When I grow up I wanna' be the National Christmas Tree.

Little Christmas Tree

This little artificial 18 inch Christmas tree is one of a half dozen that flank our front walkway. Even if it was a real tree its' only chance of becoming the National Christmas Tree would be at the mercy of someone choosing it.

We humans, however, are blessed with the intellect to make choices and plan for the future. The earlier we start and continue to work towards "stretch goals" the more likely we are to succeed in reaching our short and long range objective.

After 35 years in the real estate business my husband and I still set long range goals and adapt to changing conditions to better serve our clients.

Karen and Art-I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Very nice sentiment on being the National Christmas Tree. By the way, I'm going to borrow your "Popular Homes include" that anchors your post. You are always thinking. Thanks.
