Observations on Memorial Day  Evening by a Beverly Hills Realtor Endre Barath, Jr.…

www.endrebarath.com

Every evening, I reflect as to what went on in the day and how and what I could have done better. Generally, looking back is important to me, it allows me to figure out, how I can improve my actions and plan out the next day as well as the rest of the  week.

 Today was an interesting day to say the least. Not only was it Memorial Day, but it was a day the Red Sox were on National TV and I was excited to watch them, not only to play, but see them win a game as well. In spite of this good fortune, I was pensive as I reflected about all the soldiers that gave their lives for our freedom. I heard that in Los Angeles alone there are 88,000 graves that are the  home to those who gave their lives for our freedom…

At the same time at the beginning of the game the announcers informed us, that Bill Buckner passed away today. Sadly, this great Ball Player is recognized by everyone thanks to the ‘news media’ for one error in his life. Instead of being remembered that he had 1,077 runs scored, 498 doubles, 49 triple and 174 home runs. Then to boot 1,208 RBI’s and 183 stolen bases to name a few. So here, even in death he will be remembered forever that he passed away on Memorial Day. There are many who have passed away today and only their close friends and relatives will remember them. The difference is, they just will not and did not get the “media’s attention”.

Everyone you know will die at some point, there is nothing you can do about it, so be kind to as many people as you know or encounter. This is an easy message, but not that easy to follow.

Since we are Realtors, we meet many people who happen to purchase or sell their live’s biggest investment, hence the pressure is high on them. Let’s try to make it our commitment to help them make this transaction as stress free as possible.

Endre- I loved what you said in the end. None of us are making it out of this world alive. Some may stay longer than others, and we never know when that day will come. Why not be kind to everyone?!

Hi Endre! I saw an interview with Bill Buckner, discussing how frequently he was reminded of that one error in his life. What broke my heart is that he said it still hurt each time. I can't imagine making one mistake and that one thing being THE way that I was remembered. I think most people would stew in their brew after something like that but, he continued to play well and led a wonderful life in retirement. 

What a fitting day for him to rest.

And, of course, I had to share that I review the day too - and look ahead to the next. It does help us tweak our business, for sure.

Debe Maxwell, CRS  he had to leave Boston, MA and move to Boise Idaho because of all the abuse... so sad... it took until 2007 when everyone finally forgave him and he in turn as well...never the less every time getting beat up over one mistake is beyond cruel...Endre

Good Morning Endre! 

We would like to make the process as stress-free as possible for our clients and there are clients who would like to do the same for us.. And a few others who would want it to be a nightmare.

Endre,

The media is awash with nincompoops whose sole job is to focus on negativity...they are firm believers that this form of reporting is what sells advertising. 

Like you since childhood, I have reflected on my day before I go to sleep, and a kindness check is always part of it, as well as gratitude.  We got back yesterday afternoon, and are doing well so far.  A

Sensationalism sells. Sadly, those in search of the pot of gold with the 'big story,' don't realize that oftentimes their greed ruins the lives of others - like Buckner. 

No one mistake should ever be defining of one man (or woman). It just breaks my heart, Endre.

Good morning Endre Barath, Jr. ,

I'm so glad that Kathy Streib featured your post in her "Ah-ha" moments for the week as I missed your post. Kindness does matter and being kind and thoughtful to all you come in counter with is a small thing to do to make this world a better place.
