TAKING THE DAY OFF... DO WE DO THIS IN REAL ESTATE?

By
Real Estate Agent with Johnson Real Estate, Inc.

I received a lot of calls today, but they were not work related.  Why was I getting calls then?  Everyone wanted to know if I saw my shadow today.

YES, TODAY I'M OFFICIALLY ANOTHER YEAR OLDER.. AND HOPEFULLY WISER.

I re-read a post by Steve Hoffacker. Yikes, Running out of Saturdays, in regards to the days when we were kids and taking Saturdays off.  Being Realtors do we ever really take off a day?  Not many of us do.

However, today I am making a change, and taking today off... sort of...only answering phones, and making calls.. can't wait to drive again.....3 more weeks to go.

Being with family is very important to me, and I plan on spending the rest of today with my sons.  Clients come and go, but family is precious.  So, yes being a Realtor, I think we SHOULD take of a day every now and then, whether it be a Saturday, Sunday, or a mid week Wednesday.  Our clients have lives and so should we.

With this, everyone have a GREAT evening.. and celebrate..if not a birthday, a day with your family.

Do you take a day off?  If so how do you spend it?  I'd like to hear.

Valerie....Happy Birthday.  I think it is important for our mental health to take a day off.  We work long, hard hours and are deserving of some down time.  If we don't schedule it and make it happen, it won't.

George... Everything is taking longer to do than before.  I don't see myself sitting around for three weeks either.  I might not be able to drive, but there will always be ActiveRain to keep me busy.

Carra...  I think our taking time off from real estate is good for our clients to.  We come back more refreshed and can do a better job for them.
