As we near the end of the first quarter of another year, I find it remarkable that April is almost upon us. Although I must admit there have been a few very long real estate days during the past few months, the weeks and months are flying by.
I often have to write a note to myself to slow down and enjoy the moment. Life is more than work, but we spend a large part of our life working. Little moments of pleasure and joy incorporated into our workday can enhance the quality of our lives. Here are few little pleasures I've added to my day:
When previewing homes on a particularly beautiful Southern California day I park a block away and enjoy the walk, the neighborhood and the people. Since we have so many sunny days I get to do this quite often. It's less stressful as I'm not competing with other agents to park in front of the property on previewing days!
At 4:00 pm I enjoy a cup of tea, read the Wall Street Journal, local paper, real estate magazines and make my plan for tomorrow. That's also my time to check Active Rain, write a few comments or post a new article. I find this wind down time let's me walk out the door less frazzled by the day's demands.
Life is too short to wait until after work hours to enjoy it.
