Seeking Balance

Home Inspector with Complete Home Inspections, Inc. TN Lic#050

     There are some days I feel like engaging in ActiveRain and then there are those days that I don’t. I am not anti-social, mind you, however; with the 1440 minutes that I am allotted every day, there is only so much that I can do. Sometimes, ActiveRain takes the back seat on the bus. There was a time when ActiveRain was my main focus. Blog, blog and blog some more. To what avail? #1 in TN? #1 in my county and city? Other than bragging rights, what is the net? Now, there are more important things in my life. Health, focus on building the business and family time. I am striving to balance my life and priorities.   

And that my friends, is my 2¢’s worth for this evening.

I usually put some time in the morning on AR, but this morning the phone was pinging and ringing from before my feet hit the floor.  So it may appear I'm anti social some days.

Good morning Michael.  When blogging becomes a chore I'll quit, however right now it is a pleasure and I don't plan on quitting in the foreseeable future.

Not one of us who's been around for a while who doesn't understand this concept. Well said, and what an interesting addiction this is. ;)

Same here. I try to get here each day and comment at least 20 times. Some days it's only 10 comments and some days none at all. I can only really manage 2 posts and a Wordless Wednesday as far as posting goes.

Michael, having AR get in the back of the bus has been a recent change for me. I am trying not to feel guilty about it, but balance, yes, is the key. I now have to added (large) responsibilities as a "mom", a sweet mule named Della and a princess palomino named Pearl who are recent additions to our ranch. We love them and they really add to our quality of life, but yes, they take time. And my real estate world is spinning rapidly.

Michael, some people need professional help to figure this out!  I'm shifting my focus.  You can't use ActiveRain points as legal tender!

Good job for doing what your mama said and putting the device down at the dinner table. That's our rule, anyway. It's true. We all need to step AWAY from the computer occasionally. Enjoy your time unplugged. (Don't forget to turn off all your phone notifications on occasion, too!)

Hi Michael - you are right in that you can overdo things.  Being an  overachiever in one area to the detriment of other things is not necessarily good.
