First I was shocked. Then I was wildly impressed. This kid, who doesn't even appear to be old enough to drive is asking questions I never dreamed of asking at his age.
With no time to think or plan out a response, I blurted out what immediately came to mind:
1. Learn. Learn from books, learn from other people. Never stop educating yourself and growing, because just when you think you've learned everything there is to know, you haven't.
2. If you truly want something, go for it 110%. Stay committed. When other people say you can't, or your "drunk monkey" (aka the negative v ...

This real estate thing has delivered some of the closest and most amazing people to my life. I was reminded of one of the beautiful couples I have met, called friends and felt the impact they’ve had on my life.

Also, if you’re more productive than average people, you’ll advance faster in your career. You learn more. You do more. And eventually are rewarded more.
And when I talk about productivity, I talk about being effective.
Because productivity doesn’t suggest that you get the right things done. It just means you get a lot of stuff done. But that’s not what matters.
Effectiveness, however, refers to getting the right things done.
And if you want to do your job well, earn money, live a meaningful life, or learn skills, that is what matters the most. Otherwise, you just run around in circles. You might appear busy, but you won’t achieve anything meaningful.
In other words: It’s easy to do useless work. Work that doesn’t bring you closer to the outcomes you desire.
Practically, that means this: You might work for 50 hours a week, but i ...
