1-1-11 It’s Time to Get #CRACKING!

First off – HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
The number one seems to hold some very special significance, as it is essentially the starting point. And here we are on 1-1-11 the start of a new year and a new decade. There’s a whole lot of ones in that date… maybe the universe is trying to tell you something – It’s time to start something!

One of the biggest challenges to starting something is the actual “starting”! We tend to plan to plan to plan. I spent much of my time in 2010 sharing the Social Media message with REALTORS® throughout my state. There was one person in particular who attended several of my classes. Each time I would ask them how their Social Media journey was coming, and every time the answer was the same – “I’m almost ready to start.”

In the last several days some of my good friends on Twitter posted some great thoughts:

My good friend @ProfessionalOne (a constant source of inspiration and collaboration) came up with a combination of the two:

I don’t know about you… but my goal for 2011 is to get #CRACKING!
