Yesterday, I attended the MarTech Trends seminar in Boston put on by Buffini & Company. The Buffini training program was one I took within the first few months of starting my new career in real estate sales.
I’m a huge fan, as following its instruction lead to my winning four awards for sales and customer service in 2015, including my company’s New Associate of the Year Award.
The MarTech Trends seminar did two things, it:
- Talked about new trends in technology
- Reinforced some of the key components of Buffini’s training program.
The time I spent in Boston reminded me of the importance of getting back to basics and being consistent. Handwritten notes, phone calls to your sphere of influence, and pop-bys (popping by to see a client) help you build and nurture relationships.
It’s also important to get back to basics and be consistent in my relationship with God. Every January, I set a goal to read more of the Bible. That’s great for the first few weeks, but as soon as I get busy one of the first things to go out the window is my dedication to reading the Bible each day. Daily prayer is on that to-do list, too. Can you guess what doesn’t happen when I am rushing out the door in the morning?
That’s what is so wonderful about going to church on Sunday mornings. It’s that dedicated time to my relationship with God. Praising my Lord and fellowshipping with my church family inspires me–just like the MarTech Trends inspires my business–to get back to the basic consistent behaviors that will deepen the relationship I have with God.
Can we help you by praying for you and your relationship with the Lord? Let us know what’s on your heart right now.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. (Ephesians 6:18, NIV)
