One of my favourite authors, Neil Gaiman, was quoted as saying “I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.”
From the moment we are formed in-utero, our brains start to develop and this development is at a rate faster in the first two years than any other time in life. Our learning begins from the moment we are born and it’s up to you and your surroundings to feed that brain. This involves making mistakes, which can be the cornerstone of our learning.
No matter what stage at life you’re at, it’s a great idea to enrich your mind and enhance your knowledge through learning. You possibly don’t realise it, but there will usually be something new to learn every day. It could be something as simple as how to use an appliance, complete a task or something much more complex.
Property Management is a constantly evolving space and one of the things that I love about this industry is that no two days are the same. You are constantly learning, whether it is something that may be rewarding or something that may be a lesson on what not to do.
Learning isn’t always easy and can provide some challenges along the way. However it can be incredibly fulfilling. Never stop at an opportunity to learn. Read all that you can, stretch that brain to its capacity and fill it with knowledge, even if it is something completely random.
If you would like some help on where to start, why not give the team at Real+ a call and we can get you started on that growth journey.
And if you like, drop me a line, I would love to hear what you’d like to aspire to, learn and change in your world this year.
