Its always later than we think

Real Estate Agent with RETIRED 200305001

This evening I will do my usual New Years eve reflecting back. One of the things I notice, is how I still think I am 20 years younger than I really am. I think back to how my college age kids where grade schoolers only yesterday.

I think of my former career (auto collision repair) and how fast I was, and money grew on trees! If you didn't know it, those guys are paid on piece work too, all or nothing.

Of course I look at the deals that got away last year and what could I do different. I'm not going to share that part. So why is it always later than we think?

Rob, don't beat yourself up over things that got away, it happened to all of us and the most important thing is that we learn from it.  Age is relative, you are as you feel!  Wishing you a happy and successful New Year!
