“Highest and Best” seems to be showing up in conversations relating to myriad topics these days.
Some ways I hear folks apply:
- We have multiple offers! Give me your Highest and Best offer NLT 5 PM tomorrow. We will let you know if you win the property by 10 AM next day.
- What’s the Highest and Best use of that piece of property?
- Single family House
- Horizontal Regime (2 houses on one lot)
- Development for more than 2 Single Family Houses
- Condominium Development (Townhomes or flats)
- Parking lot
- Community center
- Retail store (or mall)
- Office Building
- Gas Station
- Car wash
- Bowling alley
- What’s the Highest and Best use of this $20 bill?
- What’s the highest and Best use of my TIME this afternoon?
- What’s the highest and best use of my ATTENTION – My FOCUS
- What’s the highest and best use of your unique TALENT and expertise?
- What’s the highest and Best use of your personality
Let’s simplify this questioning . . . More powerful with fewer words:
“Relative to __________, What Matters NOW?”
If we begin with some time with this question before we act, we might:
- Make fewer mistakes
- Be more productive
- Feel more fulfilled
- Enjoy deeper relationships
- Know that we are getting the Highest and Best use of our self
You deserve to be the best you can be always . . . and you won’t be that unless you consistently question . . . What Matters NOW?
Oh by the way . . . the rest of us are ecstatic when you make choices based on what matters most to you because we get to live vicariously through your pursuit of PASSION . . . your commitment to follow your heart.
. . . and this is contagious.
As you attend to what Matters NOW to you, you are teaching others how to do the same . . . and you are serving others at the Highest level imaginable.
YOU MATTER NOW!
Every day in my world of consulting with Home Buyers and Sellers and Real Estate Sale Professionals, I hear lots of chatter about “Highest and Best” . . . and those 3 magical words pop out of my mouth.
What Matters NOW!
Nothing can add instant clarity quite like it.
Try it . . . I think you’ll like it.
