There Are No Finish Lines In This Business

One of the things I enjoyed about teaching was the sense of schedule. Syllabus the first night, lecture for a while, presentations, then a final exam. A nice hand shake from the student (or a bag of burning dog poop), and the semester was over. Before long a new crop of students would come along and the cycle would begin anew.

 Real estate practice is nothing like this. Unless you only plan on doing one transaction at a time (not good for the budget), real estate is more of a treadmill. As one deal is nearing closing, others are spread all over the map. I've went to closing, done an initial buyer consultation, and a home inspection all in the same day! Talk about needing a day planner.

 For me such maddness is one of the benefits of our field. I have NEVER had a boring day in real estate. Plenty of bad ones, but none were dull. And how many American works can make that claim? Seize the day!

Great way to say it.  I just thought of this: Real estate agents never die . . . their listiings just expire.  HA HA HA

Interesting that you put it like this, Doug.  It's just one of the reason I like being a Realtor® so much more than any of my previous jobs.  It's on going and always a challenge.

Having the proper mindset and understanding that each deal is on its own timeline and that you constantly have to be prospecting for new business, great advice and perspective.
