Just Roll With It

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty


Children Rolling at the Dallas Arboretum 

FLEXIBILITY... in our business this is an absolute.  The ability to adapt, re-arrange our schedule, to keep on moving after interruptions, disappointments.  Momentum, what drives our success, gives us energy to succeed, gives us market presence, elevates us to reach our goals.

INTERRUPTIONS ... distractions from our business.  Those events that are unavoidable and need our attention.  Self imposed interruptions .. those items we do have control over but fail to screen.  Being a slave to our email, cell phone and feeling the need to be a 24/7 agent, being reactive instead of proactive.

SUCCESS ... reaching our goals, sense of accomplishment.  Learning to balance your business to go in the right direction.  To roll with the distractions and pull yourself back on task.  To be the very best in what you set out to achieve.

Learn to roll with the business in the positive direction through flexibility, limiting interruptions and always working towards your highest success.

Connie, I'm very flexible.  Sometimes I think that if I bend over backwards for anyone else, any more, I'll break something. ;-)

I've learned to live with the interruptions, and I'm still learning to balance personal with business.
It's a work in progress.

Yes, we have to roll with it indeed! If we did it any other way we'd drive ourselves mad! Best to you~

Hi Wendy - I had my camera at the Arboretum and caught those two just having a blast.

Good points Connie.  Sometimes you need these reminders to keep you moving (or Rolling).

Balance is tough sometimes especially when you are starting out. The missed phone call seems like  disaster and you agree to do things you normally wouldn't so as to accommodate clients.  You provided great reminders though - thank you!

I have had to just "roll with it" here lately too. I just found myself working so many hours, that I told myself, it's "ok to not answer the phone after 7pm". The world didn't fall apart!!

And if you "just roll with it," eventually you might find that when "the good times roll," you'll be "dancing with the stars." Now I'm sick to my stomach. I can't believe I would ever let "dancing with the stars" escape from my mouth (I use voice recognition software).

Since San Diego County has a lot of military personnel overseas, as well as a lot of interest from Asia, Japan, etc., it's very important for me to be flexible. One of the reasons why I make myself available 24/7.
