The waterfall is flowing, the candle is lit, soft music is playing and I’m finally getting over my writer’s block. It is amazing what a Zen moment will do for your productivity and, in turn, your profitability.
Are you going so fast through your day that you forget to stop? If so, it’s high time that you stop and smell the roses. It is a standing joke in my family that I don’t even see the roses let alone stop to smell them. Do you have that same problem?
I find that when I can center and meditate even a few minutes a day, the results end up being more creativity, less stress and my priorities seem to be more clearly defined. It’s important for us to look back on what we have accomplished to evaluate were we are going in the future.
Buyers can take a lot of our time. Working with asset managers and sellers can be overwhelming. We need to remember that this life we are living is each our individual track. You get to decide how fast and furious you want to go or how slow and methodical you want to be.
My suggestion to you is to take a few minutes — even if it is just 10 minutes — and reflect and meditate. Meditate on where you have been and where you want to go.
Creating Zen in our lives is just as important (if not more important) than creating Zen when we stage and/or sell a home.
