Realtors inherently crave human to human connection.
As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded, I knew that isolation (quarantine) would be excruciating for our team of active Real Estate Sales Professionals. I wondered what I could do to take the edge off during this time of quiet solitude.
After some contemplation, I arrived at the conclusion that any form of daily contact would be the right salve.
For the past 10 weeks, I have sent everyone on our team an email early morning for them to see 1st thing,
Today’s message is :
“Just sayin’ . . . Y’all are doing some great stuff out there as you help Buyers and Sellers navigate their life changes.
I was thankful to see Pottery Barn unscathed this morning after being wary of their decision to cover all of the glass with plywood yesterday.
Meanwhile, the violence continues in many other cities.
Yet another “distraction” that has potential to have us all slightly off balance.
Remember this as you go through your days. When people get anxious and angry over things that seem insignificant, consider the impact each and everyone of us is experiencing.
Let’s adopt more of a “benefit of doubt” and be sensitive to others’ tension.
Don’t react . . . Take a deep breath and respond.”……
Robert Schwartz offered this amazing response:
“Barry’s words remind me of the Prayer of St. Francis:
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love
where there is injury, pardon
where there is doubt, faith
where there is despair, hope
where there is darkness, light
where there is sadness, joy
O divine Master, grant that:
I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console
to be understood as to understand
to be loved as to love
for it is in giving that we receive
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
THIS is the engagement that invites mutual support and higher levels of productivity.
Wishing you a smooth Tuesday!
