Helen Ga Real Estate "Are We There Yet"?

By
Real Estate Agent with No. Georgia Mountain Realty

"Are we there yet"?   How many times have I heard that, children in the back seat, bored,impatient, tired and just ready to get back to their games, friends and whatever we left at home.  I find myself impatient tonight, not wanting to write this post, impatient with my time, business and life.  "Stop and smell the roses" I hear this refrain somewhere in the back of my mind and I wonder if I can remember the last time I did this.  We all get too busy with the time stealers in life.  Too much email, too many phone calls and text messages, too many "fraud alert" telemarketers, too much junk mail.  Too much time on the computer, ever notice how many distractions pop up as you try to take care of business?  Do you get impatient with the day, rushing through, wondering "Are we there yet"?  We are all taught the harder we work, the further ahead we get in this life.  True?  Maybe not.  A contemporary of mine says he only works 4 days a week, in real estate.  He says his office and other realtors realize he needs Friday to regroup.  But he is a ninja worker also.  Once he comes to work, his eye is on the FOCUS of the day, his purpose, which he had in mind when he walked in the door.  No distractions.  Easier said than done, but something well worth striving toward isn't it?  Do you know what your focus is for tomorrow?  Can you plan your day to fit in all the important things, including walking the dog...don't forget walking the dog benefits both you and the dog!  And while you are out there on that walk, stop and smell a flower..

So have you considered going Ninja? I haven't taken that class but I would like to look into that whole concept - nice post - smell the flower!

Thanks for the comment Lise. As a matter of fact I have had the course, it is well worth while.  I am sure my friend has not had the course, but lives his life that way...We just get way too busy, and there is an old saying about taking charge of your time, or someone else will.  I need to remember that more often.
