Brevard North Carolina Real Estate Blog: Poised and wondering what's around the bend.

Poised and wondering what's around the bend.

This roller coaster year is finally coming to an end and in these quiet days I'm left wondering about where we all go from here. What have we learned? What will we take with us in the year ahead, and what will we leave behind? How has this year changed our core beliefs about ourselves, our businesses, or our country.

The things I'm leaving behind are my disappointments and some of my expectations. So much of what has happened this year is way beyond my control so the best I can do is adjust. I'm taking with me the belief that our business is better prepared for 2009 than we were for 2008. This year we took the approach of "making lemonade out of lemons" and in many respects our business is better for it. We upped our training, we learned new ways of doing things, we dug deep to become self-reliant. It hasn't been an easy year and like everyone I know, we took a financial hit. But by being resourceful, we've managed, and at the end of the day, we'll be better at what we do than had we not lived through this past year.

I wish I felt as good about the world around me. I've seen enough corruption and violence lately to last me a lifetime. I truly don't know how someone can dress up like a Santa, then go on a killing spree. I don't understand how a man can knowingly scam friends, families, and foundations out of billions of dollars and still sleep at night. Maybe one of my new years resolutions should be to watch less news.

There are plenty of things I don't know...but the one thing I know for sure is that the only thing constant in life is change. And if we aren't moving forward, we're standing still.

So here's to a new year, new experiences, and to always moving forward.
