As a follow up to Matthew's post where he sought constructive criticism from the group here…I would challenge you all to talk directly to the person you feel needs criticism. Ideally, if you love and value yourself and the other person in need of criticism, you should do it within 24 hours of your suffering through whatever they did to concern or frustrate you. I saw this quote from the Dalai Lama this morning that I believe gets to the heart of our collective idea of raising the bar: “The very purpose of spirituality is self-discipline. Rather than criticizing others, we should evaluate and criticize ourselves. Ask yourself, what am I doing about my anger, my attachment, my pride, my jealousy? These are the things we should check in our day to day lives.” For me this means raise the bar of yourself by finding love, compassion and patience (read: inner peace) and the sky will not be falling what your favorite blogger tells you it is. You complain about a person, product or service to someone who can actually help you, as opposed to launching negativity into the ether. Building a fan base and/or friends built on anger and negativity is not sustainable. This is a practice. Being mindful of what we think, say and do is raising the bar and starts from within. So I challenge you to trust yourself, share love in response to anger, fear, hate etc.. Face your anger, you are suffering, I am suffering, but I’m doing my best and need your help!
Hi Eric Stegemann, Audie from realtor.com here! We published an update this morning that will give you some insights to the work we're doing here: http://realtor.com/leadership and we absolutely worked with all of our partners including the NAR. More news is coming soon...
Heather it was huge, almost magical. we got about 1,000 photos submitted, over 35,000 online votes, tons of web traffic plus millions of impressions through traditional media - and brand positioning money can't buy. Our agents totally embraced it and used the tools we built to reach out to their sphere and drive traffic to their own websites. Lots of company and Arizona pride. already working on the next rendition.
