Adam Milstein is the Managing Director at Hager Pacific Properties, a commercial real estate company which he co-founded with his partner, David Hager. Adam Milstein is also a philanthropist.



In an interview with Ideamensch, Adam Milstein was asked about one habit that makes him more productive as an entrepreneur. Contrary to what many would expect, he did not state that it was his smarts and neither did he delve into some complex mumbo jumbo as some entrepreneurs often do. Rather, he stated a simple formula that anyone could follow. He stated that what makes him more productive is consistency, persistency and follow-up. He then proceeded to break it down by stating that he never lets anything fall through the cracks. This is because he believes that, that which you deem unimportant and which you fail to give a hundred percent of your dedication to, could actually be an invaluable opportunity. Therefore, by letting it slip, you equally lose the great opportunity that would have come with it.



Equally, Adam Milstein says that whenever someone says no to you, as they often do, this should never prevent you from executing that plan which you always had in mind. While most people would take a no to mean that the action or idea cannot be implemented, Adam Milstein simply takes the no to mean that the actionor idea cannot be implemented by that person. It can be implemented by another person! Or if the other person equally says no, then, the action or idea can be implemented by him! After all he is the originator of the thoughts that birthed the idea.



As a testament to his resolve to see that things are implemented, he mentions in this interview, that he actually ends up getting most things done all by himself. This may be hard to believe given that he sits at the helm of his organization, as the Managing Partner. However, it only cements his attitude towards life and towards entrepreneurship – you cannot run away from action, no matter your position, as action is the precipitous to success.
