Playing Hooky

Transaction Coordinator - Amelia Playing Hooky

When is the last time you took an afternoon off just to play? Or even a day or two? I hope that time away from your work is a regular part of your schedule, but over the years many agents I’ve met sadly tell me it’s not the case.

Recently I took the afternoon off to hang out with my 2-year-old granddaughter whom I affectionately refer to as the Grand-Ginger-Princess. There is something magical about spending time an energetic little one who loves making silly faces.

While many agents start a career in real estate looking for freedom and flexibility soon they realize that it’s nearly impossible while working the business alone. Doesn’t it seem like everyone needs you desperately when you’re trying to get away for a few hours?

I truly believe the remedy to burnout is time out – doing something other than work, and encourage my team and clients to do this often. All it takes to make that happen is a plan and a trusted team member(s) to make sure that the important things that need to happen while you’re out do.

If you haven’t made some time recently to play I highly recommend you schedule some soon. If you need ANY help during your vacation or hooky day, or at any other time, with anything, please let us know.

Here’s to fun, family and getting things done.

Don’t just take my word for it – here’s a few articles that will perhaps inspire you to take some much needed time off to unplug and have some fun.
