Every once in a while I see a challenge that is so right up my alley, I actually feel bad that I didn't think of it myself. This is one of those challenges.
First of all, I love this movie, favorite of all time. Second, my daughter used it for the title of a cereal sogginess science fair project in 7th grade, titled The Good, the Bad and the Crunchy. For the record, Frosted Flakes was the winner.
The best good habit I have is promptness. I am always on time or early. My agents I work with know it and depend on it. The clients comment on it all the time and if I am not at the inspection at least 20-30 minutes ahead of the scheduled start time, then I call to let them know I am running behind. I use this early time to get my ladder set up, paperwork all in place so I'm not shuffling around in front of the client, and just getting a look around the house. If the house is occupied, then I introduce myself to the sellers if home and let them know I will be up, in and around the house. I also make sure there is access for any attic or crawl space.
The bad habit of mine is talking. I like to talk. I like to talk a lot. I have had agents, former co workers and relatives tell me to stop talking so much and start listening more. I am much better than I used to be. But I can tell a really good story. Honest.
The ugly habit I have is procrastination. I have had literally a half dozen programs or systems that were purchased at a seminar or convention that sounded like the greatest thing in the world when I heard the speaker on stage. Then I spent a bunch of money on the program, and ended up never even taking it out of the package. I'm staring at one right now as I write this blog. I drives me nuts, but it's just money, right? Nowadays I take a really hard look at something before I reach for my credit card.
