Workplace Quality of Life Mandate

People who live low quality lives, by definition, underperform in their jobs.

Stress, anxiety, exhaustion, always ON 24/7/365 are recipes for crash and burn.

So often (especially in the Real Estate Sales Industry), I hear of “Professionals” who take great pride in the fact that they are working 15 hour days, writing offers at midnight, answering their cell phones EVERY time the darn thing makes a noise.

If you are one of these people, you are disserving your clients, your family and friends, and most importantly, yourself!

The Quotation marks are intentional, because I know that real professionals know that they MUST be sharp in order to perform well for their clients.

There’s no such thing as “not having enough time to take care of myself” . . . It’s a CHOICE to put work ahead of life quality.

Schedule your “Me Time” and friends and family time FIRST . . . then fill the remainder of the calendar.

Sharpen your saw frequently.

Eat your wheaties!

Be committed to your Spiritual, mental, physical, emotional, social well being.

Don’t cheat yourself because when you sell yourself short, every relationship (personal and professional) suffers.


Do it intentionally and enjoy what comes in the form of getting more done with less time and energy expended . . . Yep . . . This is Voodoo wisdom, and it works.
