Motivational Monday - Patience!

Real Estate Agent with Diane Turton, Realtors, Forked River, NJ

With all the errors here lately, I think that some quotes about patience are in order!

      QUOTE: " He that can have patience can have what he will."

                Author:  Benjamin Franklin

     QUOTE:  "All things come to him who waits - provided he knows what he is waiting for."

                 Author:  Woodrow T. Wilson

     QUOTE:  "Only those who have the patience to do simple things perfectly will acquire the skill to do difficult things easily."

                 Author:  Johann Friedrich von Schiller

I have worked long and hard in my life to learn patience. I have become much more patient...maybe it comes with age. But let me tell you, there are times.........

Toula, I have one from the bible.  1 Thess. 5:14 And we urge you brothers, warn those who are idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone.

Well said my friend, I am not the most patient but have been improving over the years. It's funny but I have many physician clients and when some of them get short tempered and I mention being patient, they laugh and say they have PLENTY ;-D

Okay Toula - these sound like things I tell my short sale clients! And they're all good, and better-worded than my constant pep talks.

Well, it's Tuesday and the new servers are supposed to be installed by now.  So far so good.  Maybe we won't need as much patience for AR soon.

By errors, do you by any chance mean - proxy errors?

Yes, we have all had to develop patience over these. It is my sincere hope that they will soon be gone.

Good morning Toula,

Excellent quotes especially for me this week! I was working on 4 offers on 4 different homes yesterday, writing an offer for a buyer and working on 2 new listings coming on..our email was acting up and playing havoc!! My patience was wearing thin!!

Hi Toula.  ONe of my favorites is that of a co-worker who sorta kinda got it backwards.  He said "to human is to err".
