The Buck Stops Here

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Boston North West

I recently read The Travelers Gift by Andy Andrews and for the next 21 days morning and night I am reading Decision 1: The Buck Stops Here.

The book was powerful, about a man at the lowest point in his life, ready  to end it all who just as he is about to winds up “traveling” through history and meeting some of great historical men and women who each teach him a lesson.

This one is about accepting that you are where you are through your own doing and to stop blaming people, genetics etc for where you are. As I go about my day in Real Estate this is in the back of my mind. Here are a few changes I made because of it:

I was late for an office meeting that I thought started later. I could have sworn that’s what was written down and I was ready to go down the path of “it’s not my fault” but it was. I misread the calendar so I was late, end of story. Next time I will have to pay more attention.

I was  tired and didn’t want to go to the gym after a long day. Too bad most of my days are long and I knew that and didn’t get up in the morning. So I picked myself up and off I went. I felt more energetic the next day too… except.

My ankle started acting up again. Great reason not to go right? Nope ankle brace and the bike which doesn’t aggravate it. No more excuses.

The lesson is all about putting your energy in making the right decisions and moving forward on them. Not making rash ones and regretting them later. My favorite quote in the lesson “My life will not be an apology. It will be a statement.”

Stay tuned for Decision 2: I will seek Wisdom.
