Caught In The Coils...

Education & Training with STAND UP/STAND OUT!


 telephone cord

“T’was a dark and stormy night…” and as the rain pounded down I sat at the office waiting for offer documents to be faxed through! 

In this techno-savvy age where business people are familiar and regular users of all kinds of communication devices – it may be that while a client does have e-mail, that person might not have the ability to scan and send back completed documentation! 

Years ago before all the modern gadgetry, a REALTOR® may have driven many miles and hours to present an offer, prepare a sign-back if required, and then at the very least - hand deliver the counter-offer to the REALTOR® representing the other party. 

Nowadays it’s nearly unheard of – paperwork is pretty much zipped through the cloud for speedy arrival in someone’s Inbox! 

A sense of promptness is not always the same for one person as it is for another…and there can sometimes be extenuating circumstances.  Twiddling with the telephone cord while I wait for “the call” to say paperwork will be faxed shortly, I noticed that the coils felt like they were tightening…doubtless my own anxiety and awareness that time is of the essence. 

Similar in appearance to the elasticized wrist bracelet that holds my car keys, I was undoubtedly caught in the coils!

Good morning Sheridan,

With the price of fuel today it is lucky we may get caught in the "coils" now and then.

Make yourself a great day.

Waiting is the hardest part...waiting for the offer, waiting for the inspection, waiting for the appraisal, waiting for the closing!
