2020 – Happy New Year and New Decade

I am wishing you a Happy New Year and New Decade, the decade of 2020. The number 2020 makes me think of perfect vision and of my brokerage, Hindsite 20/20. I jokingly said to my broker, Charles, that maybe we need to change our name to Foresite 20/20, as having an eye toward the future has always served me well.

Whether it is hindsight or foresight, our goals, plans, and everyday choices determine our quality of life. With the start of this new decade and new year, I’ve begun setting my goals and am looking forward to achieving them. I love numerology, so before I started my goal setting I took a moment to consider the number 2020. In numerology, you add all the numbers together until you have just one digit, so 2020 would equal 4, a number that represents order, balance, stability, and foundation.

My most significant goal for the next few years is to grow a successful and rewarding real estate career here at Hindsite while maintaining a suitable work-life balance—one where I provide unparalleled value and service to each and every one of my clients, while also being intentional about carving out space to enjoy time with my friends and family, as well as vacation time. My second major goal is to declutter, sell, donate, and organize my personal items with aspirations to be more like Marie Kondo, the home organization guru. My third goal, which as a former health and wellness coach is one I set every year, is to have a regular practice of meditation, yoga, healthy eating, and exercise. Last year I added some Ayurvedic morning and evening practices that I will also continue this year.

As I look at my goals, I can see the themes of 2020—order, balance, stability, and foundation—in them. Do you see these themes in your own ambitions? I would love to hear all about the goals you are setting for yourself this year and this decade. Perhaps we can chat over coffee, tea, or lunch?

While we’re on the subject, I wanted to share one more of my goals… which is to play Cupid and help you plan your next major holiday – Valentine’s Day! Each year, when February 14th rolls around, a special night on the town is one of those things that, if you don’t plan ahead, is likely to be… less than special. As your personal Cupid, I’ve thought ahead and already booked preferred seatings for two at several of Austin’s most sought-after restaurants. As this month’s Item of Value, I am offering to pass along these valuable reservations so you can have a Valentine’s Day dinner date that is worthy of the one you care about most—be that for the love of your life, a long-time gal pal, or perhaps a daddy-daughter date. Just enter for your chance to win at www.HindsiteAustin.com and maybe this can be one goal you cross off your list early.


It’s a good life!
