I have been oh, so wonderfully busy this week. Negotiating and ratifying a contract on a listing. A successful auction , two sellers waiting for me to do the listing agreement, then showings on my latest two listings. There have been seminars and meetings last week, a WCR luncheon, a webinar and a networking evening downtown, a planning meeting for an art auction in May and lunch with my publisher. Plus, of course, many phone calls, emails, reading, etc. Yep, a typical Type E schedule.
As I was leaving the house this morning for a string of appointments I got a glimpse of my desk – well, actually two desks plus the dining room table separate for doing my income taxes. What did I see? Looks like a paper truck threw up!
Oh…yeah…and my deadline is today for getting the stuff to my accountant.
Now don't think I am not organized. Received a call from a client who had purchased one of my listings back in 2001, and another who bought 14 years ago. Within minutes, had my hands on those folders with all the pertinent information. One of these clients is looking at my new listing and both are thinking of selling their homes.
So it's not a lack of organization that leads to scenes like these. Nope, it's the Type E in me. All the information is there..I just file by pile. I can find what is needed. It's the task of sorting it into someone else's order that I avoid.
And that is why my desk looks like a paper truck threw up!
Are you brave enough to photo your desk before you straighten it up? Come on show us...I dare you.
