In the world of business, especially the mortgage business, most Loan Officers experience enormous amounts of pressure to perform. And, for most, this pressure has an exponentially negative impact because we are, at our core, inefficient. We may be good at making it rain, so to speak, but because of a host of other issues like lack of quality, lack of systems, lack of proactivity and even lack of Level 10 sales skills, we are working harder and harder, rather than smarter and smarter.
At the root of all our problems is the disease of busyness. There is a radical difference between being busy and being productive. The age-old question should always be, "Busy doing what?" And, sadly, it is in this state of busyness where we lose focus, passion, power and ultimately effectiveness and energy. It is rare that something comes along that can address the busyness disease but I found it. This is a guest slideshare I found from Guy Kawasaki, the Chief Evangelist of Canava, the online graphic design tool, and I hope that you are impacted by it as much as I was.
