As I read your BLOGS, it occurs to me that many of you chose to practice real estate because you can use a former career experience and background like me. , I'm a REALTOR ® -business person-educator-author-poet-eco-savvy person-web fancier and etc, . . .I do use this far-ranging mix in my real estate practice every day.
There are probably a number of us here at Active Rain who are putting various backgrounds to good use. However, I may be an “odd duck” even in this crowd (I'm smiling) because my hobby is applied systems theory.
Systems theoryAccording to Wikipedia, systems theory is an "interdisciplinary/multiperspectual field of inquiry that studies the theoretical and actual properties of systems as a process by looking at it in terms of relationships from which emerge new properties of wholes." Now here's what this means to me - I get to have a blast applying what I know of systems theory to the practice of real estate. Here, complex real-world systems help to explain the basic structure of optimal methods of regulating a behavior, either to maintain stability or to drive toward a desired goal (successful real estate transactions.)
It has to do with navigating successfully from Point A to Point Z, such as getting myself and my team to a 100% Successful Closing Event Track Record and HAPPY Referring Clients!
I quote one of my great heroes, William McDonough, “… the world-renowned architect and designer and winner of three U.S. Presidential awards: the Presidential Award for Sustainable Development (1996), the National Design Award (2004); and the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award (2003). Mr. McDonough is the founding principal of a design firm practicing ecologically, socially, and economically intelligent architecture and planning in the U.S. and abroad.
“I believe we can accomplish great and profitable things within a new conceptual framework—
one that values our legacy, honors diversity, and feeds ecosystems and societies . . .
It is time for [us to design systems] that are creative,
abundant, prosperous, and intelligent from the start."
What I look for and have found when I read your material at Active Rain is that creative, intelligent star-sparked spirit. Please talk to me about your ideas for a new conceptual framework—one that values our legacy, honors diversity, and feeds ecosystems and societies.
