Our Best Tips and Resolutions for 2021
One of our core values at Mark Spain Real Estate is to constantly grow and improve. There is no better time to grow and improve than at the start of a new year. We have gathered some of our best tips and resolutions to implement into your life in 2021.
Develop a morning routine
Developing a strict morning routine can drastically change your life because it will positively impact each day. Starting your morning routine can be as simple as waking up 30 minutes earlier so you can go for a walk or have breakfast as a family before the day starts. Humans are creatures of habit, by developing good habits, we are setting ourselves up for success. Whatever your routine may entail, we are sure it will make for a good day! “You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” – John C. Maxwell
Read more books
Reading is so important for personal success and growth. You can read books on your phone or Kindle, but you have to start somewhere. If you start reading more than you do now, your life and success will dramatically improve. This is a popular resolution at Mark Spain Real Estate.

Set attainable goals for yourself
Setting goals is a popular new years resolution, but you want to set the right goals. If you want to meet a big sales goal in 2021, try to set smaller goals along the way in order to achieve the one big sales goal you want to meet in 2021. If your goal is something as simple as drinking more water, start by drinking one extra glass of water at dinner. Take 10 minutes and write down the goals you will achieve in 2021. Do what you need to do in order to achieve these goals and hold yourself accountable.
Moving is a great way to get some fresh air and exercise. Moving can be whatever makes you feel good, whether that is going for a 3 mile run or starting a gardening your backyard! Moving is a wonderful way to escape reality and let off some steam. If you want to start working out but don’t know where to start, Youtube has a plethora of free guided workouts. In the new year, take some time each day to move!
Set aside time to yourself
As a parent, setting aside time for yourself is extremely important for your mental health. We encourage you to set aside time for yourself and incorporate something that you enjoy. It can be a part of your new morning routine or even getting a sitter one night a week in order to have some peaceful time to yourself. Setting aside time for yourself could allow you to do things you didn’t realize you enjoy or that make you feel energized. Regardless of your stage of life, setting aside time for your self is a great way to recharge and get to know yourself.
Listening is something that a lot of people don’t realize that they are not doing. Especially in business, listening to your clients and coworkers can set you up for great success. Next time a client or loved one comes to you with an issue, try to sit back and listen before giving feedback. Once you absorb what they have said, try to ask more questions and really understand where they are coming from. Check out our blog on how active listening and asking the right questions can set you up for success in the workplace.
