Agent Alice spent a week at the beach in August 2012.

I returned rested and ready to roll into the Fall real estate market.

Below is a quote from Stephen Covey that I like.

Covey died this summer from complications from a fall from his bicycle in April.

His death reminds us of the preciousness not only of vacations, but life itself.

“Suppose you came upon someone in the woods working to saw down a tree. They are exhausted from working for hours. You suggest they take a break to sharpen the saw. They might reply, “I didn’t have time to sharpen the saw, I’m busy sawing!”

“Habit 7 is taking the time to sharpen the saw. By renewing the four dimensions of your nature – physical, spiritual, mental and social/emotional, you can work more quickly and effortlessly.”

–Stephen Covey (October 24, 1932 – July 16, 2012)
