How to Keep New Year’s Resolutions

by Tyler Grossman 01/13/2019

Whether participating or abstaining, everyone has New Year’s resolutions swirling around them like crazy. Are they good or just the thing to do? Is there a way to keep them (especially past the first week)? All these and more are the kind of questions that you may be wondering about right now. 

Finding a way to keep a resolution may very well be the wrong question 

What if you went about it differently? In a manner that gave you control even when something doesn't go quite right. Instead, make a choice or goal to accomplish something this year. In so doing, you now do not ruin a resolution when you don't follow the plan perfectly all the time.

Find an accountability partner

Remember to make yourself accountable to someone (who is willing to hold you to it). Accountability is probably one of the most important steps to reaching your goal. On those long days when you really don't want to put in the work to learn that new skill or maybe want that extra serving of dessert, your accountability partner is there to tell you like it is and to help you stay on track.

New Year or All year 

Do not consider it a New Year resolution but rather a goal for the whole year. Thinking this way enables you to set aside the time it may take to accomplish said goal. That way when April rolls around and you haven't been to the gym since January 20th it is okay because the whole year is not past and you have time to get back at it and succeed. 

Staying out of the same old rut

Try not to get stuck in the same rut of choices just because they are the ones that you hear other people using. Any area of your life that you want to make a change in is fair game. Want to stick to a budget, get out of debt or learn a new skill? These are all goals that you can set for yourself this year allowing your life to move forward in the manner that you desire.

Success is all in your mind, so, move forward this year

In all the excitement of a fresh start don't set yourself up to fail needlessly. That way when you do fail sometimes you can get up, dust yourself off and move ahead again towards your goal. Remember every success is just stepping from one failure to the next as long as it is always forward.

It's been an exciting decade working in the trenches of Marin Real estate!  Experiencing all the highs and lows of the always changing Marin market.  In fact, it can be different from street to street, week to week, and certainly for each and every home.  As a Marin native, I know the ins and outs of all the various neighborhoods, including schools, parks/trails, restaurants/shopping, transportation, and all the various aspects I need to know for our clients.  I feel so blessed to be able to raise my 2 children (Reed -7, Paige - 5) here with my wife Beth.  Although expensive, we know every day why it's worth it!

I partner with my mom Marti, who has over 30 years of experience in the business and has been very successful and highly respected.  Together we pool our experience, knowledge base, technical savvy, networking groups, and provide our clients with a true value of 2 for the price of 1.  Marti has excellent working and friendly relationships with all the older guard or agents, as i do with the more contemporary ones.  We are always leveraging our relationships to put our clients in the best positions.

Team Grossman has a long track record of sales success that we are happy to share with you.  We are as comfortable and committed to selling $250,000 co-op's to $2M estates.  We are 100% committed to our clients throughout the real estate relationship and beyond. We earn the trust and respect of our clients, who recognize that we are always willing to go above and beyond to provide the best service we can possible give, in order to make your real estate buying or selling needs come true. 

I have been in real estate since 2005, including every time of residential sale, including single family homes, condominiums, townhomes, income investment properties, bank owned properties (REOs) short sales, houseboats and land. Over the years, I have earned the trust and respect of my clients, and often made good new friends along the way.  I have been recognized by my company for various Sales Achievement and Client Service Awards throughout my career.

I ask that you meet with us to get to know us and how we run our business, and allow us to earn your business.  Thanks for that opportunity and can't wait to hear from you.
