Idaho Real Estate >> ID Real Estate Specialist


For 2008 I will "Go do the right thing"

I have written before about how Dr. Laura's little statement "Now, go do the right thing" has caught my attention in the past.  Once again Dr. Laura's little statement hit home.  I signed up for her email because I love her human stories.  Yesterday I receive another email and her story just touched my heart Human Global Warming.  This story is about a man Dr. Laura met in a restaurant that impacted her by "Doing the right thing".

Dr. Laura ends all of her radio programs by saying "Now, go do the right thing".  This is such a simple but powerful statement.  If everyone just thought about "Doing the right thing" we would have a lot less issues in our world.

In my real estate business I see clients attacking Realtors, Realtors attacking Realtors, Realtors attacking Title Companies, Builders attacking Realtors, and on and on. 

I would like us to consider two things going into the New Year:

  • "Seek first to understand than to be understood"  and
  • "Do the right thing"

As the 7 habits of highly effective people suggests "Seeking first to understand than to be understood" will help us to value the other person enough to want to understand their position.

"Doing the right thing" simply means to do what is best for the other person.  Too many times we "Do what is best for us" in most situations.  For a change I would like us to consider "Doing the right thing" for others. 

This just may change the world "One person at a time".
