Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from all of us at Home Rental Services!  Whether you celebrated at a big party in downtown Kansas City (see Grinder’s video below) or safe and warm in the comfort of your home, we hope you enjoyed ringing in 2013!  Too often, people are go, go, GO all the time.  They don’t slow down long enough to celebrate what they accomplished in 2012. If you are one of those people, consider setting aside half an hour with your favorite beverage and think back on 2012.  You might be surprised how many things happened and how far you have come.

Did you set any goals for 2013?

It might sound boring or tedious, but a recent study found that writing down your goals and sharing them with friends and family will make you 33% more likely to achieve them.   We can say from personal experience that this is true for us.  We take notes in our staff meetings every week and keep track of which “to dos” are assigned to which people on our team.  Things get done so much more than they did when we didn’t write things down.

We have a plan for setting our 2013 goals.

On January 12th, we have an all day planning retreat to review our systems and processes and make them better.  The entire staff will be there and we have fun games with prizes planned to break up the working day.  We will post pics later in January.

If you have any tips for quick team building exercises, let us know!
