Living 2012 One Goal at a Time.

Real Estate Broker/Owner with BROKER of Green Realty Properties® - 954-667-7253 BK3175566

I’ve seen a lot of my ActiveRain peers set up their goals at the end of the year and then post their accomplishments. I am going to do a much smaller version, for the month of January.

Of course, my listings and sales are huge accomplishments for me no matter what month we are in, but I just wanted to focus on the following two since they are being professional, the other personal.

Professionally, I wrote and taught my first class called "Keeping Your Sanity while Working Short Sales". It was very exciting and I loved it! I hope it’s the first of many this year.

Personally, I became a Certified Raw Vegan Chef this month! I’m particularly proud of that accomplishment, since it allows me to give my family more delicious vegan options (I’m the only vegan in the family).  I can’t wait to see what February brings!

Congrats on all of your accomplishments this month. Usually it is suggested that you plan for this year and into the future but I also say break those goals down and it makes it less daunting on paper and you get to celebrate more accomplishments!

That is great Patty just keeping it simple and real. I would how you set your class up as far as the board. I teach one on time management, maybe you can shoot me an e-mail of how you organized it.

Patty, this is quite an accomplishment for you!  Some of the dishes you posted about on FB really looked tasty!  Besides nuts and legumes, what other sources of protein can you consume?   You probably just got over your afternoon headache and NOW YOU HAVE AN EVENING HEADACHE TO DEAL WITH!  ^_~

Patty, Yeah for YOU!  Congratulations!!!  I have been eating a lot of raw food recently.  I simply pour a kettle of hot water over the veggies and then eat them.  It is amazing how much flavor is in raw veggies.  I hope your family embraces the vegan culinary delights you serve them.  I am sure you will be teaching many more classes in the future.

Living one goal at a time, who knew?  Just kidding, that is sound advise Patty.  Pursuing goals and maintaining them is a challenge but it can be done if we have the right mindset.  Seems to me you are well on your way, congratulations!

Congratulations Patty,

So much of our time is spent in real estate training that it is so nice to see that someone is doing something outside of real estate. You and your family will certainly benefit from the class. Nice certificate!

Adrian - I am working on my February goals, stay tuned!

Elizabeth, I do better with monthly goes... I am not sure why but if I only do early goals somehow they don't get accomplished.

R & A - Hey, how about doing both?!

Marianna - you are the biggest beneficiary of my vegan knowledge.. you get to eat all the delights!!

Charles, I wrote the class as a (summary) time-line of a short sale file. This is the first class so I am sure I have a few things to learn.

Dale - you are so incredibly kind. Thank you so much.

Bruce - I am so happy you are on AR again that my headache is gone!! Protein can be found in so many places, nuts, seeds, green leafs, beans/lentils... and now I know that they are the easiest for the body to absorb and use.

Kathleen, I never knew how delicious eating raw could be!! I have a delicious Kale recipe if you are interested.

Dee,  right? I think we complicate things for ourselves sometimes.

Steve - I think it is neat! I could not imagine I would be writing about this a year ago.

Kristin - that is just it... I wanted to do something for me outside real estate (that I love passionately!)

"Keeping Your Sanity While Working Short Sales" sounds like a class that I would love to take. Until then, I will sit and pop bubble wrap to relax. I just heard a news report that said popping bubble wrap for a few minutes a day was as relaxing as a 30 minute massage.
