Good morning everyone! I hope you are all having a fantastic week. Yes, I took a little break from the MMKO as life has been a little crazy the last few weeks.
Remember just a few years ago before we had the Hornets and now the Thunder. I personally did not pay much attention to NBA basketball and was really just not into it. But I have to ad-mit I have really been hooked on watching the games and going to the games. This year more so than previous years I have really come to appreciate the quality of the players we have on our team and how well they play as a team. We have what three main stars on the team but the way they assist each other it makes a whole bunch or starts. I was at the Thunder / Maver-icks game Monday night and I noticed how when Dirk for the Mavericks got a good one how he would put his arms up in the air at half court to say “Hey Look what I just did”. But with-out the guys who set the screens and passed him the ball where would Dirk be? Then I noticed how when KD slams one in what does he do? He takes off to play defense or how Westbrook handles himself when he swooshes a 3 pointer. Does he go to center court and put on a per-sonal show? No they don’t because they know that without the cooperation of the rest of the team, they would not be where they are at today. Which team won that game–the Thunder of course. Of course we just saw another come from behind victory Wednesday night. You might be asking yourself right now, what does an NBA team who plays really well as a team have to do with the selling of Real Estate?
First off each one of us is our own boss so to speak. But if one of us treats a customer poorly, does not communicate well, does not deliver on quality service, does not follow up on a lead, return phone calls promptly, do everything within our powers to get a listing sold then guess what? It makes the rest of the team look bad. Ultimately what each one of us does will impact how well the “Team ” performs. in the same token if we all give great service, respond to phone calls quickly, sell our properties timely then the team wins. When the team performs well it helps us to achieve our goals as a company and individually.
The game of basketball is really fairly simple, is it not? The goal is to get the ball, dribble the ball through the defense or competition, go down the court take the ball and throw it through the orange hoop. That is why they all the players get paid millions a year right? Because any-body can do it. I believe Wednesday night the Thunder had 3 players who got 30 or more points each. Now, to achieve that statistic means that you played some serious team ball. Each one of these players had the other players back so to speak. Being a Realtor on a great team of Realtors is the same way. We must always have each other’s back so that we can all achieve the goals that we all want. Stay tuned for next week as we discuss perspiration and persever-ance. That will be fun being sweaty and stubborn.
Have a great week. You are the best team of Realtor in Oklahoma! Dan
