Since Thursday, I've kinda been wandering around eyes-glazed, and more than a little zombie-like. I haven't had much "Real Estate" business to do over the four-day holiday weekend. Oh, a couple of phone calls, meeting a client at a condo so she could measure... but no showings, no listings... very very calm....
I've felt a bit "off" over the weekend. No, I didn't have a cold, or that flu that's been running around. I've been healthy (or as healthy as I get), just "off". I've only been running on two cylinders, and sleepwalking through the day. I've had no goals to meet, no schedule to keep, wake when I want, sleep when I'm ready. Ahhhh... the entire weekend has been that lazy Sunday where the weather isn't nice enough to go out, so you lounge around the house all day, the Sunday paper spread all over the kitchen table. Watching whatever presents itself on the television (who writes this crap, anyway?).
It got so bad that I signed on to AR, and there was nobody there... did I write a dozen blogs, and take full control of the featured blog roll? I did not. I turned the computer off, and went and made a bagel. I checked back in a few times a day, saw that nothing was going on, and laid back and did some more "nothing" of my own.
This morning, here we are back at Monday morning, and the cycle begins again. We have our Mandatory Monday Morning Meeting (4M), and so I'm up and dressed early, ready (and eager) to go out and greet the day. I have a schedule to keep... the 4M begins promptly at 9:15, and then at 10:30 we have our Caravan, where we view the new properties from our own office. Then I have a condo to have photographed, some phone calls to make, and return ... well, you get the idea.
I already feel better. You know, I need that schedule, I need that routine, it motivates me and keeps me moving forward. I need the structure. And structure, in the real estate business, is hard enough to generate.
And here I am... right on time, first thing of the morning, my first post of the day.
It's so easy to fall into a stay-at-home attitude. Into a "my clients are interrupting Oprah" attitude... and you know where that will get you?
Lots, and lots more free time! Be careful what you wish for!
