I know that is surprising and funny – but truth remains; I can’t. I am ... well, let’s just say that my age is not at sea level anymore, and after all these years I STILL can’t tie them. Well, let me be clear. I can run the rabbit around the circle underneath to create a bow on the top my tennis shoes; but it doesn’t last. Within a half hour Ray will be telling me that my shoe is untied..... or Annie will be stopping me to tie my shoes.
I think it’s funny actually – how does a grown person not know the correct and lasting method of tying a shoe lace? – well, don’t judge - it is just not in my skill set. Nor, is styling long hair, folding fitted sheets (yes, I have seen the How-to video on Facebook – didn’t help). I could continue a long list of things that I can’t do, but neither of us have that much time.
I am really good at making a list of things I can’t do – those items are always front and center to me. I actually didn’t have a clear path when I started thinking about my shoe strings this morning... but those of you that know me well understand that is how my brain works. Riding the rapids of my though process is not for the faint of heart, but I do attempt it now and again to reach a destination. It occurred to me that we all have those things that we are not good at or not able to accomplish at all. What is important is that we recognize that and wait for our own Annie’s to come along to tie our shoes.
I have been in the process business for over 27 years; I was reminded of that this morning when I ran into a lady that I worked for in college (below sea level age). Managing processes and projects is a special talent that I have always possessed. I am able to look downstream and see closed and open paths before the flow arrives and have always been able to redirect quickly and safely.
One thing I have learned is that EVERYthing is a process: shoes strings, cooking dinner, folding sheets (which is for me, rolling them up tightly and throwing in closet before they unwrap) writing a blog, and buying a home.
One of the best thing you can do this spring is to get your air conditioner ready for the hot Texas summer, is to get it checked by a local HVAC professional. Twice a year it is recommended that we go and have x-rays and a general cleaning/check up with the dentist. AND I have to tell you that if you are thinking about putting your home on the market this Spring, then let an establish, informed and experienced agent an opportunity to discuss that with you. Now I am not telling you that it should be me, but it should be a local real estate agent from somewhere close to where you live. I can highly recommend the community minded agents of Mariner Realty and I would be happy to schedule a time for us to talk. But whatever you do protect your largest investment – consult with 2-3 agents and pick the one that you feel you most comfortable with and trust your gut.
After all, you cannot travel fast or far if your shoe laces keep tripping you along the way.
