I’ve been procrastinating blogging. I’ve got lots to say. And I have pictures to post. But if I do all that, it will take too long. So I’m just going to set my timer and write! Well, I now have a kitty on my hands.
It’s been one of those days where I keep having aha moments. But if I don’t write them down, I know I will forget. I’ve probably forgotten several already!
Yesterday I read an article on photoreading. It’s a technique where you let your brain process the pages of a book without serially reading the book. This morning I took one of the 5 books I’m reading (have been for several months!) and “read” it in 30 minutes. I don’t know if it works; I haven’t bought the whole course. I just took the tips learned in the techniques. The book I chose was Body Clutter. Since I’ve been a FlyBaby for awhile, much of the stuff I know. So what did I take away from my “photoread”? Well, I captured my notes on my body clutter diet plan:
- Record weight daily
- Have fun
- Move – 15 minutes 2x per day
- Goal: Healthy and strong at 50 (just a few months to go)
- Eat more fiber and drink my water
- Control portions but eat more often
I’ve been struggling a lot lately with moving forward with my real estate career. There are thing I love and things I hate. I hate calling people on the phone. Yes, I know I can do it but I hate it — maybe its because I’ve rejected so many people who’ve called me on the phone! So today I called a customer that I met at a open house several weeks ago. I’ve talked to them a few times but this was the first time I got their voice mail. I was greeted with this message:
ALOHA — This is the residence of xxxx and we can not take your call right now. It is beautiful day here on the Island of Maui and we are thrilled to be here. Please leave a message and we’ll give you a call. Mahalo nui loa!
The message was said with such enthusiasm! I could not help but smile. I should keep calling them and record it just to put me in the right mindset before calling people.
Then I watched Oprah (recorded). She and Gayle went to a spa with 60 women from around the US. They were doing this thing where they are in a harness 40 feet in the air and let go and swing. It was very funny to watch people face their fears. It was good to see people able to let go AND laugh at themselves.
That’s when it hit me why I’m struggling with real estate. I’m not having fun. I don’t laugh at the dumb things I do. I don’t have people that I can really laugh with. Maybe it will just take time but I think I need to have or be part of a team.
I still haven’t figured out how to make this happen… more later.
