Turning Intentions into Action

Real Estate Investing Ideas – Don’t lose ’em -Use ’em!

All achievements, all earned riches, have their beginning in an idea.

I find it interesting that March has been become International Ideas Month. I feel blessed that most of the people that I know are full of ideas! Being in the real
estate investing arena can really generate a lot of ideas. In fact, successful real estate investors are usually those people with creative and innovate ideas. The problem is often what to do with all of those ideas, how to channel them, how to put the idea into action.

Here are a few ways to make the most of your ideas:

Start an Idea Vault – This is simply a file or folder or notebook where you put your ideas until you are ready to work on them. It is a safe place to keep them so they don’t just float away as fast as they arrived.

Use Mindmaps – The concept behind Mindmaps is that people don’t think in a linear fashion. Our thought are all over the place. Mindmaps help you visualize a project. They allow you to see the big picture and the details. To see a Mindmap and how they work, check out http://www.mindjet.com – you can even download a free trial version of the software. However, you don’t have to have software to create a Mindmap, you can draw them.

Mastermind Groups – A Mastermind group is a group of people that get together to support each other, usually in business. The dynamic of having a group of people together providing brainpower and ideas is absolutely amazing!

If you would like more information on any of these tools or are interested in participating in a mastermind group, email me at nspivey@transformit.net.

Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true.
