The end of a decade.


2019 has been a BIG year.


The property market has been fickle in its treatment of real estate agents this year. In some instances, it’s even been quite elusive!


The 31st of October marks 60 days until the end of the year.

It also marks 60 days until the end of the decade.


For some, you might even be looking forward to closing the door on the ‘era’ that 2019 has felt like it has been.


But while it’s so close, it’s also far enough away for us to still implement change.


It’s an opportunity to finish the year in strength.


60 days is enough time to implement and cement new habits.


In fact, on average it takes 66 days for a new behaviour to become automatic.


So, what will you do for the remaining 60 days of the year to start a new habit?

What is it that you have let fall by the wayside in 2019?

Or was there something at the beginning of 2019 that you wanted to try but haven’t gotten around to yet?


It could be implementing a new system at work.

It could be organising your filing cabinet that you’ve been meaning to get to when ‘it got quiet’.

It could be starting your 2019 review early and setting your business up for 2020 now so you can REALLY switch on flight mode these holidays.

It could be starting an exercise program or getting back on track.

It could be reassessing your diet to fuel your energy levels.

It could be starting a meditation practise.

It could be picking up a new hobby!


Whatever you decide to do, you have enough days left of the year for it to be habit-forming.

How was it that you imagined finishing 2019 at the beginning of this year?


As a side note: It’s actually a common myth that habit-forming only takes 21 days. Maxwell Maltz’ research into behaviour change over time from the statement ‘a minimum of 21 days to change a habit’ to ‘it takes 21 days to form a new habit’. I often feel like this is one of the reasons we “fail” at implementing new habits. So, don’t stress if you fall off the habit wagon or you are still trying to get the hang of your new habit day 21. Give the habits the time they deserve to form!
