I recently spent time with the CEO of a well-known REIT for whom I represent a few assets in their portfolio. The title, “CEO” might have led you down the road of thinking “wow he must be a success”. As we walked along one of the centers, he stopped to bend down and pick up some trash. Note to self, “this guy is a success”. I later joked with him and told him that I had almost picked it up, but wanted to see what kind of man he was, he chuckled in response. Our actions, attitudes and daily choices define true success and our core values.
