Justin’s Theme for 2021: Organize for Increase
In a recent episode of the Agent Evolution show, Libertas Real Estate leader Justin Thorstad speaks about creating a theme for the New Year. And he discusses his theme, and why he has chosen it. Need some theme inspo for 2021? Check out why Justin has chosen to “organize for increase.”
Creating a theme for a new year is about focusing and dedicated a specific area in one’s life that they are going to pay close attention. Justin says he was inspired to make his theme “organize for increase” and he feels many people can benefit from this profound concept.
“When I heard this, it hit home and I asked myself ‘what can I start organizing to create space and allow myself to see the increase that is coming,” he says, adding that while different categories came to mind, he chose one that he knew he could get into action om immediately. And that was his finances.
He decided to turn to technology to help him organize this space of his life — and put all his bills on autopay so he never has to think about it. And he encourages others to figure out systems and automated programs to help in areas of their lives so they don’t have to think about them.
“We all have a mental bandwidth and we need to consider how much of it is taken up by routine, mundane tasks,” he says “With the use of technology, you can get much of it off your plate and know that it’s taken care of, first of all. Then you don’t have to think about it and it won’t have to divert your focus away from other areas.”
Justin also challenged himself to figure out why he hadn’t done something so simple prior to this point. He pinpointed a time of scarcity — when perhaps money wouldn’t be in the bank to automatically get withdrew. So he waited until he had the funds to pay each bill one at a time. He uses this experience to encourage others as they go into 2021 to assess the “old programs” that they are still carrying out and ask “what haven’t you updated in your life that you could to organize for increase in the New Year, and what else can I use that attention and focus for?”
Specific to business owners and Realtors, he suggests taking a look at areas that they can reorganize. “If you’re expending a lot of time and energy on your own lead generating or paperwork, if you’re doing everything, consider what could be delegated,” he says. “Consider organizing yourself and seeing if you can reposition things or put some tools, systems and even people into place so that you can get some of those tasks off your plate and you can stay in your lane of bliss.”
In doing so, this allows people to continually participate in solely the parts of their business that they truly love, that are “play.” And once people do that, they can show up more powerfully and create even bigger and better results, thus making space to receive an increase.
For those looking for personal increase in 2021, such as a relationship, Justin encourages them to take stock of their surroundings to see what can be decluttered. “Look at your home, your garage, your closet. Is there a bunch of junk in there?” he asks, adding “Maybe it’s time to clear it out and organize for increase. Look around at all the facets of your life and ask, ‘what I can organize to allow myself to receive more of what I desire?’”
Heading into the New Year, Justin encourages people to choose a theme of focus. And then use that theme to plan, forecast, predict and consciously create the life you desire.
