Change is not always easy and not always welcome. Human nature seems to adapt to the status quo of living with familiar, comfortable routines. Many of us wake at the same time each morning, enjoy breakfast, drive the same route to work, put in a full day at the office, return home by the same route, enjoy dinner, watch our favorite weekly television shows and then, call it a day and hit the sack. It is extremely difficult to change even one of these familiar routines. However, change is what we have to do in 2015.
The title insurance industry as a whole will see significant changes in 2015. Whether we accept it or not, we are being forced to make changes in the way we do business. These changes have been anticipated and many companies have already put into place new policies and procedures. If you have not complied with the new rules and regulations, please let us know. We have the tools to prepare you for the coming year.
With this required change in your business routine, maybe now is your opportunity to shake things up a little bit and embrace change in other areas of your life. How much additional effort would it take to:
- Wake up earlier and hit the gym
- Eat a really healthy breakfast
- Change your drive to work by listening to a book on tape
- Take a walk at lunch
- Find a few minutes during the work day to relax, reflect and refresh
- Eat a really healthy dinner
- Turn off all electronics for 1 hour in the evening
- Take a walk after dinner
- Pause at the end of the evening to give thanks
If you haven’t guessed, these are actually my new year’s resolutions and commitment to change.
I am looking forward to the challenges of 2015. Together we can embrace change and make this the very best year possible.
Thank you for your continued support and trust in the First National Title team.
