"The hurrier I go, the behinder I get" ...
The above is a line from the children's storybook, "Alice in Wonderland" written by Lewis Carroll ... but it definitely describes my life and home as of late. Seems the faster I go and the more I tackle, the more I find I still have to conquer and accomplish. I feel I'm running behind.
Others around me are experiencing much the same thing. Like me, they're "wrapping up" more than presents right now. Everyone is busy organizing, re-organizing, hosting, meeting, partying, creating, closing-out, and planning. Both in business and everyday life.
It sure seems like I (and my team) have "our fingers in a lot of pies". We're busy shopping and preparing for our December and end-of-year Holidays. On top of that, we're all in the midst of wrapping up business matters too. Holiday cards are going out. Holiday gifts are being delivered to Referral Partners. And we're all touching base with those that matter to us and have helped make us successful.
Personally, while doing that I like to go "bearing gifts". Each year for the past 8 years, my wife and I have created an annual Holiday CD of music together. We then share it with our family, friends and many of my business contacts.
It's become quite the annual event doing this, as Marilyn and I come up with a new "theme" for the music chosen each year. So far, we've covered Holiday Classics, favorites of family and friends, Country, Holiday music from around the world, and more. We don't duplicate songs we've used from previous years, so it's become more and more challenging to do. Fun, exciting, and exhausting to accomplish all at the same time.
Right now, I'm in the process of interviewing new LO's and Assistants for our office too. We're expanding and upgrading technology in our office and for our website. And final preparations are being put in place for the new changes coming to the Mortgage Industry in January, 2014.
Yep! The White Rabbit was definitely describing the Holidays at our home and business when he said "the hurrier I go, the behinder I get". But I wouldn't have it any other way.
