Vacations - The Natural Elixir For Staying Power in Real Estate!
I know, I know, I heard all about not posting for over a week or so now. BUT, I have my reasons!
Just so you that you know that it wasn't due to procrastination, lack of content or creativity, or even a paper football tournament, I will now include you on my little "Secret to Staying Power in Real Estate!"; VACATION!
For those of you whom might find that word a bit foreign to you, here's a definition:
Vacation \Va*ca"tion\, n. [F., fr. L. vacatio a being free from a duty, service, etc., fr. vacare.]
1. The act of vacating; a making void or of no force; as, the vacation of an office or a charter.
2. Intermission of a stated employment, procedure, or office; a period of intermission; rest; leisure.
Note the last words in this definition..."Intermission, Rest and Leisure"...ah yes, all too often talked about and one of the least respected aspects of a true business model. I am a workaholic, that's true...but, thanks to my friends and family, I get the necessary reminders of how important "Rest & Leisure" is!
We had some friends drive in from Frisco/Plano, Texas (where we now, of course, plan to deploy the http://www.PlanoHomeSales.com and http://www.FriscoHomeSales.com RE/MAX portals...let me know if anyone in those communities might be interested in participation there, just as a side note. ) this past week and we had an absolute ball! We participated in all sorts of shenanigans during this time, so I will only bore you with a few pictures from our trip to play in the snow on Mt. Lemon, just 45 minutes up the mountains surrounding the North boundaries of Tucson, Arizona. We traveled the short trip from Oro Valley, right up the mountain in no time. What a excellent quick day trip to find yourself playing in the snow (45° weather) in the morning, BBQin' in the afternoon (80°) and relaxing in the spa in the evening (65° - 70°).
Enjoy the pictures but don't forget the reality...YOU NEED TO TAKE TIME OFF!!! There is NO better way of recharging your business batteries and solidifying the most important relationships in your life...your family and friends!
Oh...not to worry, I will again pick up with my RESPA vs. RESPECT soap, first thing tomorrow. :)
