Saturday is fast approaching and I think to myself that it has been raining for 3 weeks straight and that is the first dry day on the horizon, so why don't I take a day off? I haven't treated myself to any fun actives in over a month, and my kids, what are their names again?
But, wait, what if I hold an open house? With the good weather maybe I can get that customer that has been missing me for the past 3 weeks because of weather and work. You know business is slowing down... is it the holidays, is it the credit crunch? Can I afford to miss that one client?
Heck, I'm good enough, if they miss me, they will call my cell and leave a message or send me an e-mail. But, wait, if I go out and leave my phone, I can't answer that call... I can't answer that e-mail. Oh, the self doubt that this one potential client is bringing...my brain is starting to hurt.
Why oh, why do I hear my friends talk about their wonderful weekends at the coast or the mountains and every time they ask me what I did, it is always the same thing. "I held an open and showed some new buyers a couple houses."
This doesn't seem fair. Hell, at times they make 5 times what I do and they only work 40 hours a week and have medical and dental. Where is the fairness in that?
Oh, how do I take a day off and not feel guilty?
