Who created our business model that says we have to work 7 days a week 14 hours or more a day! I bet there are many agents out there that wish there was an 8th or 9th day to work! I have proven that you can be successful yet not work more than 5 days a week and less than 40 hours per week! I basically created my own business model. (our profession can adapt to change-recall the Supra boxes & keypads & the way they changed how we show houses! How about the internet?)
Who reading this would call their CPA or Lawyer on the weekend? How about your doctor? Why then do we need to interrupt our dinner with the family to take a client's call? Is it that we are so desparate for the business? My believe is that we must prioritize our life. Decide what is truly important. Live that way!
During the week, I spend time with my children in the morning & then see them off to school. I then work until 5pm and go to the gym for an hour. I then come home and spend the evening with my wife & kids. I read the kids a book and put them to sleep. On Saturday, I paraglide in the morning (what's that is a whole separate subject) & spend the rest of the day with my family, Sunday is the same.
I do all of this and still manage to close over 200 transactions a year! I'm thankful that my quality of life is outstanding. I, like everyone else, started at the beginning and worked up to this level. We all have the same hours in the day, the same days in the week. It's clearly how dedicated you are to working dollar productive activities while you are working, and spend quality time with the family when you aren't working.
Just some things to think about!
