I AM NOT REALLY THAT GENEROUS. JUST A BIT NEUROTIC...

My Chicago Bear's Football Schedules arrived this week. 

This is always a fun week for me as an agent.  I love the marketing aspect of the business, and distributing the magents keeps me pretty busy...

I have been addressing envelopes this afternoon.  It has been a great opportunity to reconnect with my database.  A quick email requesting an address...

One of my friends responded that it was "Very generous of you" to spend the time following up.  I had promised him a schedule earlier...

"I am not really that generous," I answered.  "Just a bit neurotic."

I had promised him a schedule, therefore he was on my "to do" list.  Things on my "to do" list cause me to lose sleep...

I hate when I lose sleep.
