I am approximately 95% of a don’t-stop-until-it’s-done kind of person. (Except for tonight. I have a report due that is going to wait until morning. I am at 12+ hours of working today and I’m going to bed!)
Anyway, let’s put this don’t-stop-until-it’s-done feature of mine together with my passion to take care of people. Paired together, those traits make me very good at serving my clients well as a Real Estate Broker.
Then there are days like today. I have a client out there with a problem. And I have been to the point of distraction because I can’t fix it. I didn’t know it was a problem until after 4pm today. I can get a lot done in a short amount of time. But I can’t make other people stay and work late on a Friday afternoon. *URGH!* If I had known earlier, maybe I could have done something! Maybe I should have quadruple checked this morning. Maybe I should have driven to South Carolina and stood outside of a woman’s office until everything was done right.
I wish I could fix this. These people are not going to have the weekend they deserve. It was on my watch . . although out of my control and without my knowledge. I have to keep reminding myself of the last part. I didn’t know. There’s no way I could have known there was a problem unless someone told me.
Tonight I am thankful that there’ll be another chance to fix this all on Monday morning. And you can bet, I’m going to do all I can to get this fixed first thing Monday morning!!! In the meantime, I pray this family has a good weekend despite the change in their plans.
