Have you ever noticed how much we get done when there is a deadline? That isn't to say we are procrastinating, but simply somehow are minds are wired to get it done in crunch time. Years ago, my ex-wife was even known in her family as a "crisis cleaner", only cleaning the day of a gathering. Okay, bad example.
Even the NFL ref's blowing the call of the Green Bay game has the NFL trying to get negotiations done at the 11th hour (Wisconsin residents should just winter in Arizona where the Cardinals are 3-0). Still others are shopping at the last minute for Christmas presents some years ....... okay, put me in that category, at least back in my college days when I'm not sure I ever started looking for presents until around the 21st when I came home from school. Let's face it, unless you are in that category of people whose shelves and garages are overflowing with presents by Labor Day, this one definitely fits.
Fortunately, I do NOT do that with my Realtor habits and clients. In fact, it is more like the reverse. I find myself racing to get things done early and leave nothing to chance. Thank god I learned something from my college days, hahaha. It is that preparedness that makes me ready to tackle (no pun intended) any challenges that occur during my deals. Have a great day!
