Do you feel sometimes you are short on one end?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

Most all of us haves goals.  Some it is business, some play and some overall life and retirement.

But do you sometimes think that you are just inches from attaining what you set out to do.   If you could stretch just a bit farther you you could at least touch it.

My Dad often said that his goal was once he had the two ends touching it was to get them tied together.

But, we should not be discouraged.  All we can do is our best and that will still be better than if we had not tried!

My mom once sent me a coffee cup with lines like Just when I think I can make ends meet, someone moves the strings.  or something like that.  

It is frustrating when you are THIS CLOSE...and, something happens.  Thanks for the encouragement, Bill.

Bill, I see this a lot with my clients.  Many are disappointed that they did not reach thier goal for the year, but as I also tell them, it is better than if they had never tried to reach it.

A day late and a few thousand short.  I see the light at the end of the tunnel but the tunnel has a NO TREASSPASSING sign on  it.
