When I filmed Dan’s Weekly Vlog #2, I thought I’d be on my way to a winery and resort where I was scheduled to speak with a group of investors.
But then the coronavirus hit. We’ve seen Wall Street crash, restaurants close, companies fold… we’ve seen entire cities grind to a sudden stop. Some states are on complete lockdown.
Our office normally has 80-100 people in it. It stands silent and almost entirely empty.
None of us expected this, and we don’t know what’s going to happen next in 2020.
The best we can do is control what we can.
My triathlon coach taught me this.
When you’re racing a triathlon, you can’t predict a flat tire.
You can’t predict when you’re going to get kicked in the face during the swim and lose your goggles.
You can’t predict when you’ll fall and get injured.
Obviously we couldn’t have predicted that a pandemic would lead to stay-at-home orders and an economic shutdown.
But no matter what happens, you can control your state of mind, your attitude, and how you react to the things going on around you.
Our team has already adapted. We’ve been writing contracts virtually for a long time. Now we’re also doing online home seller appointments, buyer appointments, home showings and open houses.
We also brought in speakers, coaches, and trainers to help our team pivot.
We know we’re not the only ones adapting to new ways of doing business and new ways of going about our lives. Remember: We’re all in this together.
