Pat Starnes Snippets

Don't Procrastinate - Just Do It! Today is National "Just Do It" Day

A few days ago I alluded to the fact that I might be moving, and that's still a strong possibility. I placed a bid on a house and am awaiting the banks' response. With the likelihood of a move in my future, it means I have to get off my duff and take care of any deferred maintenance on my current home, eliminate clutter in preparation of showing this home, while having less stuff to move.

Every day for the last few days, I've been preparing myself mentally, physically and emotionally to get ready. Yes, even Realtors can be procrastinators when it's time for a move. Think of a plumber with leaky pipes, or an electrician who has faulty lighting. Do as we SAY, not as we DO!Elephant Cartoon

It's better to eat an elephant one bite a time, instead of trying to gobble the beast in a day. So each day I'm focusing on a section of my home that needs work. One day I carried a pile of clothing to the donation center. Another day I worked on minor home repairs.

Today I have a pile of closed sales from seven years ago that can be shredded and eliminated.

When I learned today, January 24, is national "Just Do It" Day, it plays in perfectly with my plans. I know what needs to be done.

Don't put off til tomorrow what you need to do today.

 

If a move is in your future, and you find yourself in need of expert Realtor advice, give me a call. Email me at starnpat@gmail.com or call 601-278-4513.

Just Do It, one bite at a time!
