Living the San Francisco Dream

Get out of the office, get energized

After a morning spent at my computer and on the phone, I hit the wall mid-afternoon. When I couldn't concentrate any more I decided to grab my iPad and hang out in my neighborhood! 

A 5-block walk took me to my bank to make a deposit. Next I popped into Polk Street Florists to say hello to Sylvia and see how business is for her. After hearing about Saturday's wedding for which she's handling the flowers, she asked me about a couple of sales in the San Jose area and values there. I love it when people ask me about the market, especially with specific questions.

Now I'm enjoying a coffee at It's A Grind coffee where I'm answering emails, checking my various social media sites, and reading some great Active Rain blogs. Wearing my Today Sotheby's International Realty shirt, I'm ready for more questions! Maybe they'll come from one of the 6 people on their computers, or one of the two folks chatting away at the next table.

A bonus: I learned of two upcoming neighborhood events, about which I'll tell you soon.

Nothing quite like heading out in the neighborhood to get the energy back up!

Sure wish my town was walking friendly. Even going to the convenience store next door is like a game of "Frogger".

Lottie, When you are too busy to get out and meet face to face...you are just too busy. We get our energy by being out and about. Today I went to a WCR luncheon even though I did not have time. Good being with other busy professionals.

Good morning, Doug -- walking and getting to know the neighborhood shopkeepers is one of the joys of living in an urban setting.

Hi Margaret - you're so right. Energy flows when we're out and about, meeting with other professionals. There's a reason why similar companies end up in the same area.

Hi Donna - on a day when I don't have face-to-face appointments, it's too easy for me to sit in my office, working on the computer or phone. Getting out, working from a coffee house, chatting with shop owners - energizing and fun.

Charles, yesterday's sortie was exactly the energy boost I needed. (Coffee and lemon bar wasn't bad, either!)
