To begin with, in response to Sally's challenge,
my seasonal holiday business time can be compared to watching thick molasses pour from a jug.
Or maybe televised chess.
Organizing my time during this downturn means putting a system of rules of conduct, and method of practice, into practical working order that will also protect my resources.
It's easy to go off the scale spending money for holiday fanfare.
So when things start to go south I'll start making plans for the return of the March winds returning to put the wind beneath my wings.
When employment is optimal there's an abundance of paperwork to sort through and get a focused retrospective on what transpired over past months.
In turn, the events of the past give rise to the goals for the days ahead.
This is the time to start putting together the needed and new layouts for commercializing yourself and your brokerage.
It might not seem this way, but the best months in the business are just around the corner, so I'll have the time to review new products and services that can help navigate the peak season.
And put my spending patterns together for the new year, in addition to a new summary of intended expenditures along with proposals for how to meet them and make recommendations.
This is also a great time to put together a clear understanding of complicated situations that may have occurred over the past year with others in my brokerage and come up with solutions that can help us resolve difficult conditions that create complex, critical or unusually difficult states of affairs.
But even as the bears are turning in for hibernation,
I can hear the music on the dry land, way above their subterranean
dwellings, and the sounds of Hanukka Harry and Santa Claus,
And another opportunity to play the piano.
Life's a wonderful thing.
