I remember the words from an old song that says, "It's a beautiful morning, I think I'll just go out and play." My normal routine begins at 5:00 am, get my son up at 6:00, and out the door by 6:30 for his baseball workouts, and head on to the office to get my day together. Last night temps dropped below freezing and the night sky was clear and full of stars. As we headed out today we both noticed the huge full moon. As a matter of fact I'm watching it go down right now on my right and the sun coming up to my left over the beautiful north Georgia Mountains (Well I was about four hours ago). My mind is racing as I think of all the things I'd like to do today and "workin ain't one of em." I would much rather be sitting in a tree stand or a duck blind. As a matter of fact it wouldn't be a bad day to fish for a big large mouth. I know that doesn't appeal to all but for me these beautiful almost winter days pose a real temptation.
But there are ecards to send, emails to catch up on, calls to make, Christmas cards to send out, newsletters to finish, calendars to mail, files to update, business plans to formulate, customers and clients to contact, new agents to interview, and bills to be paid, so I think "I'll just go out and work."
So for all those who are tempted to "rest on their laurels," let me remind you as I have my agents and myself, those who are working now may have paydays in January and February, and who knows we may sneak a closing in before Christmas. Don't be deceived by the "no use to work now agents" and the lure of beautiful mornings, get on to work and "git er done."
