The most important thing -- 4

The most important thing is keep trying.

I do not know whether I am doing successfully for my career. At least I am happy with what I am doing and I love what I am doing, and I have a financial secure life.

One thing I learnt was to keep trying. The mortgage business was slowing down recently. I told my friends that we need to keep exercising so that we can have a good health and we are able to work long hours when the rate is getting better.

I remembered when I started my business in 2003, I sent flyers to all my neighbors, I went to talk to the neighbors door to door. I got so many rejections, and got only 2 applications after visiting around 500 homes. I know the percentage was low, but at least I got the ball rolling, and at the meantime I let all the people I knew that I am in the mortgage business. And suddenly the business flourished. And I became one of the top 1% producers.

I did two workout this morning. The first workout was supposed to run 5 sets of running with 3 minutes faster and 2 minutes slow, total of 25 minutes. But I lost the rhythm. So I did poorly for the first a few miles.  Then after 4 miles, I was able to run pace of 8 minutes per mile, and finished 7:44. So I gained a little bit confidence for the last 3 miles. After resting for another hour, I ran another 8 miles, with 7 miles at pace around 7:50. Not a bad workout finally.

You can see my workout at I have some good days, some bad days, and I am still trying. Still try to have another PR sometime, even though I am a little older day after day.
