We, in the real estate trade, work 24/7 and sometimes that's 365 days a year.
There are plenty of pundits who counsel that we need some "balance" in your life. A mix of work, family and play. It's difficult, since we're always chasing that next deal, wanting to help that next client, counsel that next buyer.
We don't want to let anyone down, including our own families. We don't want to miss that next opportunity... after all, it could be the manse on the beach this time... right? right?
But into each life, a little downtime must fall. And at that point, we tend to look like a deer in high-beams. What do you do with your downtime?
Yoga, basketball, playing a little Scrabble with the family. Do you turn your phone off, and read a book... (y'all know what I mean... one of those "paper things" where you turn the pages manually... not that i-pad version)... do you head out the gym, and spar with a trainer... or to the gun range, like a southern lady I know, and blast innocent clay pigeons out of the sky, taking out your aggressions, 'cause your so frustrated with your almost vegan diet?
So, What do you do to gain downtime? Me? I blog.
