“From Steve’s Desk” is a new feature on this blog created to share the musings of Steven B. Campbell Sr., Broker at Prudential California Realty. Steve is a strong leader with a broad business background. He often shares his philosophies in writing and I thought it would be fun to start posting some of his pieces to give a sense of the culture here at Prudential. A company’s culture equals the “way of life” for its employees as well as clients. Steve intentionally creates and maintains a culture that is based on openness, integrity and values. Under his guidance we work hard and we have fun. I hope you enjoy.
Year-End: A Great Time for Assessement
by Steven B. Campbell Sr.
As we approach the end of another year, we can all view it as an opportunity for personal and professional assessment – a time to ask ourselves a few key questions. They might include:
What worked well for me this year? What proved to be a waste of time?
What have I learned from this year – and how can I avoid repeating any mistakes?
What did I enjoy doing the most? (We typically do best, what we enjoy the most.) How can I use it to improve my results next year?
It’s really all about “continuous improvement” and not missing the convenient or natural milestones to re-assess and identify ways to get better. They need not be “huge” improvements…just clear, measurable improvements that add to both your bottom line…and to your enjoyment of the business.
At Prudential, we focus on ways to get better – daily. It’s part of the culture and part of our commitment to Success. That commitment also includes a sincere commitment to knowing … and doing… the Right Thing.
