If you have the chance to talk with Jack Kautz of Lodi, California there’s one thing you’ll quickly come to understand – Jack LOVES a challenge. Some people are just wired to take on challenges, solve problems, and help make the world a better place and he’s one of those people.
For Jack Kautz, the challenge that stands before him is what motivates, excites, and propels him forward. There are people who enjoy chilling and binging Netflix for hours. For others, it may be reading. And for some, they live for an afternoon nap.
But Jack lives for the adventure and the thrill of life. Whether it’s family, business, or fitness he’s pushing himself and embracing whatever comes his way, and doing it (most of the time) with a smile on his face.
Don’t Wait For The Perfect Circumstances
If you wait for the stars to align, for all your ducks to be lined up, and for every circumstance to be in a perfect position you should stop right where you’re at. There is never a truly perfect time for anything you take on. There will always be situations and circumstances that provide you with an “out” so that you can avoid the challenge.
And, that’s where Jack found himself early in his career.
With no experience in the world of real estate and at only 22 years old Jack decided to face a huge challenge head-on. He took his savings and purchased his first apartment complex.
Nothing about the situation was ideal or perfect. And while the thought of turning the complex into a profitable venture was absolutely part of the decision, it was the challenge that held just as much satisfaction for Jack.
The decision paid off but it took embracing the challenge to make it happen.
As you consider where you’re at in life, your family, your career…are you avoiding challenges? Are you taking the easy route? Are you doing what you’ve always done because you don’t want to face the unknown?
Take it from Jack…
Embrace the challenge – you’ll be glad you did!
