If You Don’t Enjoy It, You Won’t Do It….It’s That Simple


This is so simply stated and it’s so true.  If you don’t ejoy what you’re doing, you won’t do it for very long.

Via Barbara Todaro (RE/MAX Executive Realty in Franklin, Ma):

After reading a post by Michael Thornton titled “Time Blocking and Blogging” it made me think about the organization skills and discipline exercised by many agents.  I think the majority in this industry have good intentions.  To go forth and apply those time management principles that are shared by others in our industry is an ongoing process.  Again, our intentions are always good.

Most agents continually attend courses and seminars that provide guidelines and assistance with managing time.  We are given samples of time lines and daily tasks that may apply to our business plan.  Again, most have good intentions of using this information.

Real estate agents are creatures of habit, but those habits are formed because of priorities.  At any one time, one thing is more important than another.  One task is more enjoyable than another.  For those who do not like writing, blogging will never work properly because it’s unrealistic to think that a task that is not enjoyable will be repeated consistently. 

If one has found an enjoyable function and it continues to work for them, it automatically becomes a priority in their daily routine.  That task will be performed consistently with added improvement until it becomes a way of life and a natural daily event.  If that’s what blogging has become, it’s because you allowed it to happen.  You make sure the “blogging time” during your day is “blocked” for that undertaking.   You enjoy that mission, and everyday it becomes a “mission accomplished” that continually provides positive reinforcement for you, the writer, and additional strength for your business. 






About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
