It Has To Be Done 1-2-3!

Clock 123I can hear it now…there she goes with the numbers again. I woke up this morning at 5:30 a.m. and I realized it was 1-2-3. Could not get it out of my head – who knows what sparks my Type E brain sometimes? But there it was: 1-2-3, and there won't be another one until December.

Lee and MargaretNumbers mean more than just a way to count or tell time. Remember 944? That's one of my special numbers. Even more special is 14,848, the number of days I've been married and living my own love story. What does 1-2-3 mean? Today's date, of course, but also do it now, get on with it, keep moving ahead.944

How many times today will you write 1-2-3? On a check, perhaps, or a sales contract, various addenda, or even at the top of an Active Rain blog. You can count on it (bad pun) – so use it as a reminder.

Now excuse me, I've got to get going – so make it a great 1-2-3!

Margaret, numbers can be as complex or simplistic as we want them to be.  There are certain numbers that I like and others that I don't.  Fun post, take care and happy blogging!

Morning Margaret,

Sorry to say I am reading this post on 124, however I am pleased to say I wrote a Contract on 123, there was a counter offer on 123 and an accepted Contract on 123. Hope it is the start of a long lasting trend.

Jason, Is one of those certain numbers 17? Enjoyed your meme.

Hal, Better to be reading on 124 and have a ratified contract on 123. Here's to smooth transactions that were started on 123.

1-2-3 was a good day.  I had a closing even if I had to drive to Columbia to be there for my clients who could not make it to the beach for closing..

1/23 was a great day for me . . . Got a listing and put two under contract as a Realtor . . . Had a very successful "Pizza Chat" party with my agents as a broker/owner . . . and was able to be home in time to take my lovely wife and two beautiful daughters (Lizzie and Ella) out to dinner . . . then, after I put them all to bed and watched a movie with my wife, I JOINED Active Rain!!

Anyway, it is nice to find you here Margaret.  I don't know you personally, but I am assuming that you are an extraordinary person.

I am also wickmanized and have been attending MSA (Floyd Fest) for the past 3 years and I know that not just anyone wins the "Get By Giving" award.  Congratulations on that and I look forward to chatting with you in cyberspace.

Bill, There is so many really important things like 123 floating around in this Type E brain of mine.

Richard, What happened to Lotus 1 2 3, take a look  Software Graveyard: Lotus 1-2-3

Frank, Would love to talk with  you!  What a great day to join Active Rain, put two under contract, take a listing, have a party with your agents and still spend quality time with your wife and family. I would certainly call that fabulous time management. You understand the concept of WIN=What's Important Now !! And you know that I adore Floyd and all that he stands for!!

Richard, Are we dating ourselves a bit?

Nice and I must confess Margaret, I missed it being 1-2-3 on 01/23/09.  It's nice to see that we all have our unique flavors, sugar and spice to add to life.  It's not quite so ordinary:-)

I'm a numbers guy also... in yesterday's game the quarterbacks numbers were "7" and "13". Guess which one was "luckier". :-)

Rebecca, I like your take on life. Nothing is quite so ordinary.

Chuck, I do believe it must have been the one the Steeler's QB was wearing.Not going to try and spell his name..

Hi, Margaret!

I was looking for a blog that had a prospecting idea that uses a 1 - 2 - 2 method and found your blog. 

Of course I did!!!
