Confessions of an A.D.D. Loan Officer Part I
“How Many A.D.D. kids does it take to screw in a light bulb?
…wanna go ride a bike?
If you don’t have days like this – pleassseeee skip the rest of this post series – it’s not for you. Not only will it confuse the living daylights out of you, but you will wonder how such people could even function outside of a padded room.
For the rest of you – “hey guys… this way…” welcome to the:
Confessions of an A.D.D. LO
Not sure if this is you? Take this simple test to find out if you are an A.D.D. LO.
Have you ever;
- Forgotten if you have put the Splenda in your coffee or not yet – wait this tastes like tea…
- Walked into the Operations Manager’s office… and forgot why you left yours.
- Picked up the phone, dialed, hear ringing – and can’t remember who you are calling.
- Bought a new system to “fix” your business – then realize you already own that system when you got back home.
- Gotten half way through a closing and realized… “this is not my closing.”
Ok, so the last one is a little extreme, but if you said yes to any of the above – especially the last one, then you just might be an A.D.D. LO.
Admitting your affliction is not only a scary step – it is a freeing one as well. Go ahead, say it.
“I am an A.D.D. LO.” – “I am an A.D.D. LO.” – “I am an A.D.D. LO.”
See? Now doesn’t that feel better? [Wait, what was I talking about again?] Oh, right… admitting you get distracted by shiny-objects.
Knowing is half the battle.
Part II will cover the real meat-and-potatoes – potatos[?] – po-tah-tos[?] of how to, not only function as a normal human being, but how to get things done and done well in your day-to-day mortgage practice.
