#MondaysMotivation – Get Competent! There are stages to this competence thing, and I challenge you to identify what you need help with and ask for help, training or something on your own. Understanding the stages is a start to help yourself get better at what you do! You don’t become a pro overnight!
A professional gets paid for what they do yes, but how they do it and to what degree of competence is key. And it happens over time, as your skill increases. And you have experience. Here they are, the four stages of competence:
- Unconsciously Incompetent
- Consciously Incompetent
- Consciously competent
- Unconsciously competent
Which stage are you at? Now break down the various steps of a loan and ask yourself where are you in reading title, or appraisal or helping your files close faster? – Then increase your knowledge of that part this week, that’s what I challenge you to do!
What I find is when I focus on something I want to do better, I practice it hands on and then after a few repetitions I get better. Half the battle is identifying where a weakness exists. Since there are so many moving parts in the mortgage field there’s always something to learn. Pick something and increase your competence this week.
PS>. If it happens to be marketing you want to know more about, this is a good strong suit of mine and I can help you create a whole marketing plan. —CLICK HERE
