Parking The Car On The Hill In Port Stephens

by admin on January 3, 2011

Like most Real Estate agents I like to take time off over Christmas. While Nelson Bay is chaotic, relaxing at home is a great escape and it is probably the quietest time of the year in real estate. Of course getting the engine started can be difficult come, time in returning to work. That’s why I like to park the car on the hill. Now for those who still may be a little hazy after News Year drinks, I say “park the car” metaphorically.

Lets digress for a second. Going back to the Grind can be hard to focus at times as evident in this story about 4 people going back to work: “This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it. Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.

Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it.

It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.”

Now back to parking the car on the hill. Do remember those retro model manual cars with the wind up windows. You still have one! Good, you know what I’m talking about. Well I used to have one that was temperamental and sometimes wouldn’t start. So I used to always look for a hill when I was parking so I could roll start it if it wouldn’t start when I get back in. I have applied the same philosophy to my business when I leave for a break. On the day before I get back, I organise one appointment. I block out 3 hrs of catch up calls for my first day, a long lunch and finally I tidy up my inbox as well as make sure my diary has a list of things to do to start crossing off. This is a recent photo of my team members and I thoroughly enjoy working with them.

This is Chris Hasson, have a great day!
