T- Thoughts
“The more you learn, the more you earn.” Warren Buffet
If I could instill one superpower into my 3 kids it would be curiosity. So often, I see them “wasting time” on Tik Tok or Instagram or Snapchat just mindlessly being entertained. I’m so quick to judge then I start looking at how I spend some of my precious time.
I might be checking email too frequently just for a dopamine hit or mindlessly watching an NBA game with all the commercials. I can imagine them looking at me with just as much frustration for how I’m spending my time as I am theirs! Oh, the hypocrisy!
I think for me it starts with awareness. A great book on this is Indistractible by Nir Eyal.
If you haven’t heard our podcast interview with him it’s one of my favorites! Check it out HERE
Nir talks about “surfing the urge” and being aware of the triggers that make you want to numb out and distract yourself with something else than what you are doing.
For me, learning is a cornerstone value of life, and each day I try to do at least some of the following:
  1. Read a non-fiction book that has stood the test of time. Classical proven wisdom.
  2. Listen to an interesting TED talk
  3. Listen to something different on my Amazon Echo i.e. Alexa play Samba music.
  4. Listen to an educational podcast or audible book when driving. (Learning on wheels.)
  5. Try to put at least one thing I learned into practice.
Let me know how I can help you… Just email me at [email protected]
Invest in as much of yourself as you can, you are your own biggest asset by far. –Warren Buffet

In This Week's Round Table...
On this week’s round table, Mark and the Land Geeks go “Seinfeld” and come in with absolutely no topic at all! But very quickly, they dive into an interesting conversation about what surprised each of them when they first started in this business and what still surprises them today.
Episode Notes
Joining Mark this week are: 
  • Scott Bossman
  • Tate Litchfield
  • Erik Peterson
  • Scott Todd
  • Mike Zaino
Listen as they go around the table and share what has surprised them about the land business. From their sheer ability to do it, to the complications we impose upon ourselves, learn about what they discovered about this niche and about themselves. 
Scott: You’re working hard every day, working hard for the money so do this, every morning go eat yourself a donut. Enjoy life!
Mark: My tip is a business tip of the week, I want everyone this week to review their guarantee. If your guarantee does not make you a little nervous, it’s a meek week guarantee. You can steal my guarantee, my land clients, when they buy a piece of property we guarantee they are going to love that property, and for whatever reason, they don’t love it then we either exchange the property they do love or refund them. We have a 365-Day-Exchange-Guarantee. It’s very simple, happy customers guaranteed.
