Are You Getting Robbed?

by on Aug.11, 2008, under Uncategorized

Ever put things off? You know what I’m talking about, PROCRASTINATION!

It’s a sneaky thief. Maybe you’re asking yourself, “ What does it really cost? Is it really that big of a deal?”

Oh yea. It’s the culprit of lost opportunity, missed chances, stress and anxiety.

Here’s one example that puts a monetary value on it:

I had an opportunity to buy a house in Woodfin in 2005.
My client would sell it to me for $65,000.
I had put off settling some personal matters that prevented me from being able to move on the deal.
I had to let it go.
The house sold for $104,000 a week after it was listed.
It has a great rental history and is worth about $140,000 now.
I lost $75,000 in equity and $18,000 in rental income, for a grand total of: $93,000 conservatively.

I wish I didn’t have more of these beautiful examples but I do.

The moral of the story: Don’t put it off. Get on it and get it done.
