November marks the start of the holiday season. I love to go to the stores and see all the holiday decorations and listen to holiday music. As it is cold for me to go for a walk outdoors I might just go to the stores and get my exercise while shopping.
I have holiday cards that I purchased last year. I am going to start writing them early . I like the idea of enclosing a handwritten note with each card. If I start early I will have time to do so.
I will also call many of my close friends and family to wish them Happy New Year.
I am from India and our festival of lights called Diwali is being celebrated right now. It goes on for four day. I have already called many of my friends and family to wish them Happy Diwali and many have called me. I have a few more calls to make .
I am going to go through all my old photo albums and scan important photos to my computer.I know this will take a lot of time . I will start now but I know I will do this all winter.
This is a good project for a snow day.
I have collected a lot of holiday decorations over the years. I have been using less than before so I am going to donate ornaments and decorations that I do not use.
I am going to make time to go to the gym atleast twice a week.
The holiday season requires us to balance personal time and business time . The day that you plan on having your family and friends over for dinner may be the day prospective relocating buyers are in the area wanting to look at homes.
I have found that it is good to be honest with consumers and if they can work around your schedule you can choose to work with them . If they need to work with an agent right away I refer them to someone else. I consider family time to be very important . I plan on having a holiday get together.
I went to an Eagles game last week and had to tell a lot of people. An agent hosted an open house at one of my listings for me that day. The next day I receievd a call from another agent from another company who showed her clients the house during the open house and said she heard I was at the game. She said she asked the agent where is GIta and he said, ' she is at the Eagles game. '
So to summarize the above these are my preplans for me time and family time : send hand written notes, scan old photos to computer,donate extra decorations and ornaments,go to the gym twice a week and have a holiday get together.
