Life TIVO

By
Real Estate Attorney with Bay Vista Realty BK671311

I sometime wish I had a Life TIVO but not a REWIND Button.  

 

I mean how would you use it?  If I could Tivo my Life, I could look at things more clearly.  Slow down a little and make better Real Estate Decisions, without affecting the eventual outcome.

I could grow and comprehend things in a whole new way and learn from my mistakes but still reach the end at the same destination that is ordained for me. 

I mean if you believe, like I do that life is a decision of choices leading you to your ultimate destiny, then why would you rewind and change your decisions.  The effect could be disastrous (If I had CHOSEN to turn one block earlier, ten years ago, I wouldn't be married to the lovely Mrs. Bay Vista Today, she was at her mother's house helping her move out of town, we would have never met, but that is another blog)

I am in Real Estate quite by accident.   I was an Investigator for the Federal Government and Military, destined to be a career cop.  I chose to deviate from my normal jogging path and found a HUD home Open House.

I bought that Open House and moved my family in. ( I wasn't even looking for a house and Mrs. Bay Vista didn't think I had the skill set to turn the dump into a palace.)

My neighbor two doors down was a Realtor and got me in "THE GAME".   I was a part timer after work and made 20K (net after taxes and a 60/40 split) when houses were 35 to 50K all over town. 

If I could have slowed down and thought things through, I would probably still be chasing the bad guys and enjoying it, but not really doing what I wanted to do.

SO would I like a Life TIVO so that I can slow down, learn from my mistakes and try to make better decisions so that at least I leave the best possible legacy......

Hell yes!!!!!

 But why stop at one.  I have three great kids......Let them be my TIVO.  Let them be my guide and help me slow down and let me teach them to be better than I was and yes.....let their actions and words and truths be my legacy.

I hope this gets some response because that will let me know that I am not alone.

Gary, your children will remember everything. The good the bad and the ugly. Our boys are 30 now and it never ceases to amaze me the things they bring up that had an impact in their lives. Sometimes it is the smallest thing that makes the biggest  impact. So yep, you are definately being Tivoed every day.
