•· It occurred to me recently that more and more of my time these days is being spent toiling away at accomplishing the goals that I have outlined for myself. Primarily building my real estate business. That's a good thing, right? But how do you recognize the signs that you are spending too much time building your business and not enough time, or sometimes any time, with your family?
•· I have several millionaire friends whom I have known for years and watched as they built their fortunes. You have to give them credit. They started with nothing and somehow built multi-million dollar empires. At what cost did they achieve this success? 15 hour days were the norm. Six or seven days a week. You have to ask yourself is it really worth it? These guys were willing to sacrifice their personal lives even time with their families to be successful. They definitely earned their success. But at what cost? When is enough too much?
•· In my own humble opinion God and Family have to come first. Without them the greatest successes are nothing more than hollow pursuits. Of course I would love to make millions in real estate. But the reason I want that is to be able to provide a good life for the few people who really love me and have time to enjoy them before I am dead!
•· Call me crazy but shouldn't real estate be the means to an end and not the end itself?
•· I am still working on the balancing act. I guess it is a never ending process....
