Segment 1     Famous Quotations

“Hope is the pillar that holds up the world. Hope is the dream of a waking man.”  ~ Pliny the Elder

“Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back. .”  ~ Harvey MacKay

Segment 2    600 Russell St: Our Latest MLS Listing 

As many of you know, we took a 6 week hiatus from Connie and Sheila Talk because  March and April were especially busy for our real estate business and also Connie’s book: THiNKing Consciously Rocks!, was released.  We decided to put the show on “hold” until we could catch our breath…and today is the day we return!  It’s great to be back behind the mic!

We’d like to share our latest MLS listing with everyone because it is lovely and full of 100 plus years of Nashville history!

Here’s just a bit of what we discuss today:

  • The home is 5,884 sq. ft / 4 Bdrms / 4 Baths / $699,900
  • Tax records show the home was built in 1899 and folklore says that local jeweler, B. H. Stief was the one who had it built.
  • The home survived the great Nashville fire of 1916,  1970’s Urban Flight and the 1998 Nashville Tornado
  • Many originals: 12 ft ceilings, 10 ft pocket doors, Oak Hardwoods, Gated Wine Room, Carriage House, 5 fireplaces, Egg & Dart Molding, last original stain glass window in a residence and many more originals!

In addition, we share a Seller’s Checklist for those who wish to sell their homes.

Segment 3    Heart Topic: Take Care of Your Time

Quick question for everyone: How do you begin your day?  When your eyes open what is the 1st thing you do?

We did a little research and found a study from May 2011, which reveals that 1/3 of all cell phone users reach for their phones 1st thing in the morning.

Just 3 months later, another study revealed 45% reach for their cell phones 1st thing in the morning.  Staggering to think what the number would be today….1 year later.

Another study shows % of people with Smart Phones use their phones while:

  • Waiting in line- 59%
  • Eating- 48%
  • Shopping- 44%
  • Socializing/Entertaining- 40%
  • Using the bathroom- 39%
  • Cooking or other Household Chores- 27%

Mel Robbins, author of: Stop Saying You’re Fine, recently wrote an article in SUCCESS Magazine about this topic: “If your 1st act is to check for texts or emails, then someone else sets your priorities before you’ve had breakfast.  And those emails seek your time, attention, help and brain space.  You start your day being reactive to other people rather than being proactive about your goals.  You have surrendered control….”

Armed with these startling statistics & information, we decided to conduct a test regarding cell phones and time.  We think you will be amazed!

Our question this week is: Since Hope is the Dream of a waking man, what is it that you are hoping for, what are your dreams? 

Peace,

Connie and Sheila

Jon,

Thank YOU for taking time to post, we appreciate it more than you know!

I am so very guilty of reaching for my phone in the morning...but no more!  After conducting my little test I am sold on preserving and protecting MY time!

Take care and thanks again!!!

Sheila
