Everywhere we turn these days, including the online ad that stares at me as I write this blog, agents are faced with their own worst selves: "Attention Struggling Realtors...click here now!!!" If only a little click could connect us up to our best selves, out there productively, morning til night, 24/7, the way it used to be. But if that's not meant to be, a little bit of info gleaned here, a little bit there -- not from the downbeat struggling-Realtor ads, which presuppose we're all on life support -- but from smart Realtors and realty-biz reporters -- really can make a difference.
One great thing my Blackberry affords me is the ability to keep up at the oddest of times with the huge, daily volume of information and self-help that's available to us now. Waiting for a plumber or a late client; filing for a C of O; sitting in stalled traffic -- I can always download an idea, a thought, a survey or statistic that gets me mentally moving toward doing what I do better.
So, here's to you, my colleague or competitor, geographically near or far, for taking the time to think out loud, for moving me -- us -- toward a better real estate day.
