Day FIFTY-SIX – 9/27/19
Started morning with music, and mostly tracks that connect and delightfully intermingle with my soul and principle being playing. Then to latte acquire, 4 shots. Parked bag and notebooks here in office then to other building to say hi to certain friends, my MDU brothers and sis. Abe teaching me about a matter concerning resi vs. commercial points. Learned more, which was unexpected and firefly delightful. I’m feeling not just more autonomous in my AE spree, but more alive and perceptive and preemptive.
Watching a real estate show last night and how they attract business and generate leads, start conversations and collaborate more than compete, has me walking in all this work differently. Thinking of this like real estate, and speaking it as I do literature and writing, and wine. Speaking of which…. The winery did get my check right, from what I can see. Was hoping they didn’t so leaving would be even more melodic. Doesn’t matter. Whether it’s correct or in’, I’m leaving soon. Deciding entirely in this, this AE story and perspective.
Just made the two calls I had to this morning—oh, actually there’s one more I need to make. One left message with someone in shop and the other’s voicemail is full. How does someone let that happen? Oh well, it happens. Enacting real estate practice model, from prospecting to daily operations, to taking to advertising and social media, then fusing my professor and wine life into it. I need to buy more wine for clients. Not super expensive bottles, but ….. St. Francis SoCo bottles. Not too pricey and little to no diminish in quality. I’ll go by tomorrow at some point– Interrupted concentration with text from colleague on consumer side of business, away this weekend getting married. I texted him some wishes well and he sent a thanks in return. One of the nicest humans I’ve ever intercepted unknowingly in my story. The first day at Sonic, for my “interview” which was really more of a presentation of Mike Madigan and why Mike Madigan should be here contributing, he smiled and showed voluminous interest in getting to know me. That too I catapult and compose in this AE book. A bit of a tangent, but not. Musical. All of this… jazz, hip-hop, rock, literature… everything bound and tied to one tell.
Sore from yesterday’s workout, taking notes and it even hurts to scribble. Still have to make one call. Won’t forget. What next… leaving at 10:30 for Danville. Messaged Director Mark F. for insight as to approach and he, like I, keep it not even simple but human. Ask the vendor about him, his visions, his projects, his story and self. I say this maybe to excess and a repeated wet, but today is different. Started with music, and last night with that real estate doc. Have idea for letter… to old friend, in real estate. Sending. Well, writing first then sending.
9:26, and my speed hasn’t fizzled in the least. Have to send a couple more letters, or notes. Then to the drive. On The Road, my essential and most fundamental and fixed of figures. I’m finding that business isn’t speed dependent but sight dependent. What you see for yourself and how you see the steps in front of you. Talking to Abe in the other building and the presentation he’s about to make and the precision that’s necessitated in what he’s about to do, there’s more lesson.
