Sunday Thoughts: Don't Put Off Fun Until You Retire

Searching for a photo of the Mexican desert yesterday, I ran across this photo of me from 2007 in Cabo San Lucas. This is when I realized I have changed since then. More wrinkles, less hair. But there is one thing that has not changed, and that's my attitude, including the fact it's important to have fun. That year was the first big year in Sacramento short sales for me, having started those in 2006. It didn't peak until maybe 2010-2011 when I was juggling 75 escrows at a time.

All of that work is what lead up to my success today as a top producer in Sacramento. Yeah, after that experience, I'm on vacation all the time now, LOL. But one thing I fiercely clung to back then was to have fun, to do things that I found enjoyable and not put them off solely for the sake of work.

You know how people say they will take this vacation or enjoy this type of activity after they are retired? Well, what if you never make it to that point?

I say do it today. Enjoy the journey.

New Listing: 840 Hunters Creek Drive Sacramento
When the sellers of this listing first contacted me from the internet, it was in early July. They asked for a meeting, so I worked up an estimate of value and went over to the house. Sellers don't always work on the timeframe we expect, either… more

What is Happening in Sacramento Real Estate?
