A fellow agent recently made the comment that "we had a lot of meetings this week, so it was hard to work". There were five on the calendar, longest one being 3 hours.
Whether you agree or not, the comment made me think about my week. In addition to those 6 meetings, I had an additional 2 business meetings and 4 buyer meetings between inspections and writing offers so I counted a minimum of 12 meetings in my week (I could have forgotten one here or there). And of course this is outside of my prospecting and administrative work on my business.
That being said, I felt busy. I felt busy and I felt productive. Because I work on my schedule every Friday before the particular week, I knew it was going to be a busy week last Friday so I said a little prayer to God for strength and I was quite excited :-).
But when the agent made the comment, I thought about my week and whether "I had a lot of meetings" and how I felt about that. And you know what I concluded - I am extremely blessed!
You see, most of my meetings are in a heated or air conditioned building where I can sit on a cushioned chair. My home inspection was in a house where the heat wasn't on because the condenser had not been placed yet, so my toes were a little cold and I was a little uncomfortable - for 3 hours at most. But I was not 'taking a meeting' where I had to make life and death decisions.
Soldiers 'meetings' could cost them their life. I do not know if you have heard about 'Red Fridays', but I was proud to wear a stylish red blouse to show my support. I do not mind my meetings, because they could be very different ones. Counting my blessings this morning and proud to serve my buyers and sellers in the business of real estate!
