The alarm goes off and you rush to get out of the house to get to where you are going. Some mornings we are rushing off to work or getting the kids ready for school. Often during the time we are doing things we need to do or enjoy, the minutes and hours sometimes fly by. During most vacations doesn't it often feel as though someone is making the clock turn faster as your vacation days zip by faster that an Indy 500 race car!
We never have enough time however we all have the same amount of it. How do we choose to spend our time helps mold us into the life we currently live. I often look at ways to save time, to allow myself more time for the things I need to do and the things I want to do.
Every day in life we often hear cliches. Some are good and often apply while others we may choose to ignore. One of the more applicable cliche for a Real Estate Investor is a picture is worth 1,000 words. Here are some of the uses I currently use photos for:
- I take pictures of any and all bandit signs with the camera on my cell phone
- I take pictures of for sale by owner signs with the camera on my cell phone
- I take pictures of contractor signs in lawns with the camera on my cell phone
- I take pictures of contractor vehicles with the camera on my cell phone to contact and have future power team members
- I take photos of any potential deal and have photos to help calculate repairs. These photos are also useful in having photos you can send to potential buyers for your wholesale deals.
- I take before and after photos of all projects to have a portfolio binder of deals
What are some of the other things you can think of?
Simply look with perceptive eyes at the world about you, and trust to your own reactions and convictions.

Taking more photos might make you a little more organized and will probably save you time. Go make it a great day! Believe and Achieve! :) - Joe
