Have you ever noticed how we get stuck in our own little world, totally unaware of what’s going on outside of what’s right in front of us?
A friend of mine from Wisconsin texted me a picture of the four inches of snow they got yesterday. He said he was going to spend the afternoon playing with his kids in the snow.
I replied back to him that back here in Los Angeles I was spending the afternoon with my kids in 91 degree heat playing in a parent/kids soccer game.
I kind of wish I was up in Wisconsin playing in the snow chucking snowballs at my kids, but it got me thinking about how easy it is to lose focus on what’s really going on in other people’s lives.
I went to church yesterday morning and then headed out to play soccer with my kids in the sun. My buddy Mark went to church with his family and headed out to play in the snow.
We’re in the same country, both spending time with our kids, but in very different ways.
Think about this the next time you’re dealing with a family going through probate.
You both want the same end – getting the house sold. But if you take a second to see things through their eyes, you’ll be able to not only better serve them, but connect with them on a much deeper level.
This my friend is what will separate you from all of the vulture behavior type real estate investors out there who will treat that family like everyone else they deal with – a target.
We are living in a world void of true empathy and compassion.
But it doesn’t have to be…
Committed to your success,

It’s 91 Degrees and Snowing Outside
