CRE #175: The Surprising Solution to Overthinking with Jon Acuff

Overthinking isn’t a personality trait. It’s a fear that steals time and creativity.

When New York Times bestselling author Jon Acuff changed his life by transforming his overthinking, he wondered if other people might benefit from what he discovered. He commissioned a research study to ask 10,000 people if they struggle with overthinking too, and 99.5 percent said, “Yes!”

(And that was before 2020, a year where everyone in the world had plenty to overthink.) In his highly-anticipated new book, Soundtracks: The Surprising Solution To Overthinking, Jon shares how to tweak the soundtracks in your head to make overthinking propel you forward.

Jon joins the Calibrate Real Estate Podcast this week to share how he turned overthinking from a super problem to a superpower.

  • EP #173: Doors Open When You Knock Originally from Southern California, Steven Ross began selling real estate there in 2005, and after moving to Colorado in 2009, he built another real estate practice from scratch. Steven says that he was the “worst type of person to be a real estate agent” because: He’s an introvert.  He doesn’t work nights or weekends. You can’t find him online (at least up through 2020). He doesn’t do parties or events. In fact, he’s completely antisocial. Yet he built a successful real estate business twice by doing one thing and one thing only: knocking on doors—over 125,000 of them. In addition to selling real estate, Steven has spent the last 20 years studying and helping people move forward in the areas of life that are important to them.
  • EP #172: How Are Property Taxes Calculated? The Denver Apartment market is at an all-time high.
