Thought Leader Post

I wish I had more time to write more of these Thought Leader blog posts for other sites. I find them fun to do. But don’t always have time to do them. This article was for a company that provides online continuing education for Realtors® across the country. While I take almost all of my continuing education in person, companies like PDH are a valuable asset to Realtors who prefer to take some or all of their continuing education classes online.

Here is a link to the article I wrote for them.

Blogging and Exercise

I was just thinking about how easy it is to

A: Not go to the gym

B: Not write on my blog

And the similarities are kinda amusing me. Let’s say the holidays come. It’s cold outside, lots of people are having parties, there is good food, plenty to drink. You go to a party and decide that I just don’t want to go to the gym today. Then you skip 2 days. Pretty soon you tell yourself that it would be silly to go to the gym, when I know I can’t make it next week…so why bother til I can get back into my routine.

3 months later…15 pounds later….you go to the gym. But you can’t make up for 3 months of skipping, except by one hour at a time…one day at a time.

Now blogging. Same thing, different season. The weather starts to get nice, you’re going to the gym. And you go a week without writing a blog post. Then 2

3 months later….lost momentum, etc….you write a new blog post. But you can’t make up for 3 months of skipping, except by one post at a time, one day at a time.

One could always bring up the argument that listing houses, showing houses, writing offer, going to work, cooking for the family, doing yard work, blah blah blah etc….is always more important.  But those are the must dos. There is someone else there to be accountable for. Or at the very least, someone more obvious to be accountable for. 🙂

Now I have given up promising to do anything but try to be better…do what I know I should do, exercise, blog,  meet people, etc…but at least I can be amused by my short comings….right?

Here’s to all you procrastinators out there!
