Darn but I hate it when I put things off just a little too long.
I knew when my computer went haywire a few weeks ago that I needed to find some way to back up emails - but I was so busy trying to deal with getting programs re-installed, and then with trying to make the "repaired" computer work - I didn't do it.
Now I think it's too late. My "real" computer is back at the "fix-it place" and this time I hope they get it right. But it appears that getting it right will mean wiping out everything I had saved. And I had lots of things saved that I did want to keep.
This time, I'm going to make the time to find out how to back up e-mail. There has to be a way. But that's water under the bridge, and I can't do it until I get my computer back.
Now I'm thinking about other things I've been putting off and making a list... I should probably impose some deadlines on myself while I'm at it.
What have you been putting off that you should do now?
Is it something that's going to cost you time and money if you don't tend to it?
Maybe you need to give your website a pick-me-up - or finally install that opt-in box on your short sale page.
Or maybe you need to check your database and make sure you've got all your past clients in there - and check to see that you have new addresses for your sellers.
Perhaps you need to write some letters for your autoresponder, or create your holiday message so you don't end up doing it in a rush at the last minute.
Or maybe you should take an hour or so right now and put together a Thanksgiving message to send to everyone on your list.
We all have a list of tasks that are "important but not urgent." We put them off because, in all likelihood, they're tasks we don't especially like doing. It's easy to replace them with "urgent but not important" or even "not urgent and not important" tasks. Anything to keep ourselves busy so we don't have to get over there and do the things that aren't fun.
If you have a list like that there are only 2 ways to get rid of it. Either jump in and just do it, or delegate.
Either way, you'll feel better when you mark it off the list.
That said, I'll help you mark off one task - writing a letter to first time buyers. I already wrote one that you are welcome to use, and all you have to do to get it is ask. You'll find the box at www.copybymarte.com/firsttimebuyer.html
Here's to lots of year-end sales!
