Docusign issued a challenge to hear what the Realtor masses would do with an extra three hours of 'free time'. This is my response:
In all honesty, when you love what you do it can blur the line between work and play enough that you forgive the lack of bankers hours. However, there are times when the best 'to do' item of your day can be to put the list down, turn off the extension of your brain (aka 'Smart' phone) and carve out a little niche of time that is all your own.
If I was faced with three extra hours of this luxurious time, I'd spend it playing in the mud and smelling like a horse.
Here is why:
World, meet Baxter. He's a genuine article of pure Wyoming West. Baxter was rounded up with a BLM sweep as a three year old, adopted out with 7 others and then sold because he wasn't quite as tall as the rest of the herd. The purchaser then abandoned him and another mustang in a large stall in Eaton. There he sat untouched, bored and unloved for over a year. When the call went out that they 'had to go.. now', I foolishly thought I'd just check him out for a friend.
You know how that was gonna end.
He was uncatchable on Day 1, saddled on Day 5 and the pictured goofball to the right by Day 7. (he's learning not to be afraid of random objects.. clearly the towel can be checked off the list)
He has so much to learn but he is so willing to do so and seems so happy to finally have something to do and someone to love and something to think about other than how small his world has become.
So.. with my three hours of free time I would review his past lessons, teach him something new and then we'd take a nap in the sun together like we did last week.
Me reclining in an old truck tire with his nose buried in my hair, dozing off while I played pillow to this 'wild steed' that has finally found his way home.
