What kind of busy are you?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Pareto Realty TN #251071

Like a gerbil on a wheel?

Herding kittens?

Chasing your tail?

Not sure whether you’re coming or going?

So busy you “don’t have time for that?”

Dropping lots of balls and seldom scoring?

Wishing you could be an ostrich? (Stick your head in the sand to make it all go away)

Have that “the faster I go, the behinder I get” feeling?

Waking up at 3AM in a cold sweat thinking about things that you forgot to do yesterday that MUST be done today.

Do you just WORRY about EVERYTHING all the time?

You come home one night and realize you have more children than you thought you had . . . and you can’t remember their names.

The first thing that comes to mind when you think about your vacations through the years is the work you “had to do” while the family played.

Your dog starts growling at you when you walk into the house, and the cat starts peeing on your pillow.

Are you tired all the time?

If any (or all) of the above resonate with you, I’m here to tell you there IS someone who can FIX this once and for ALL.

This person is UBER talented, STRONG, wise, caring, empathetic, loving, smart and MOTIVATED to help you get out of this deeply entrenched RUT . . . and will not charge you a dime for coaching you through the “life makeover” you so need.

This person is someone who has been right where you are many times and has always found a way to instill determination and creativity to revitalize Spirit . . . a rekindling of Passion.

Each time, this person begins with 2 mandates:



Yes! Cease all activity and go on sabbatical from the crazy busyness even if only for a few hours (a few days would be better) . . . Turn off that damned “smartphone,” and get to work on the 2nd mandate.


Where is your passion?

When did you stop following this passion?

Who told you you couldn’t do that? (Get those people out of your life)

While on sabbatical, build a strategy that orchestrates the quintessential “out with the old and IN with the new” mindset that puts you back on the path of following your passion.

Do this, even it means quitting your job or choosing to spend time with different people or moving to a different city . . . doesn’t matter what you do as long as it’s an unadulterated CHOICE by you to simply be the most authentic YOU that you can possibly be.

Many people won’t understand and might even call you “CRAZY!”

but you and this person who has helped you see the light KNOW that “Life’s too short” for being anything but HAPPY . . . and your choice going forward is to be HAPPY.

I believe we all owe this to ourselves, don’t you?

OBTW . . . That “right person” to help you with this transition is – well – YOU!

I can’t wait to see your radiant smile next time our paths cross.

Go Forth and Prosper!

Barry, I can't tell you how much I enjoy your posts. Easy to read and digest, always with "meat" in them.
