Write fast, edit slow

"When you're working on a project that requires making something new aim to create I without questioning yourself. Then once you've gotten your ideas down you can be more disciplined about turning the something into something better. This council to write fast and at slow will be familiar to writers who are often encouraged to treat writing and editing as separate processes. They require different kinds of thinking. Just as we can't really multitask by checking email while running a conference call. We're better off writing and editing successively rather than oscillating between them in one sitting in her classic Book Bird. By bird some instructions on writing and vice author. An Lamont urges would be writers to pen crummy first drafts. Well crummy isn't the word she uses but it's will use for this family friendly show and not very good first draft paves the way she says for. Good second drafts and terrific. Their drafts Lamont discourages perfectionism. Which she writes means that you try desperately not to leave so much mess to clean up but avoiding mess may not be advisable. According to Lamont Clutter is wonderfully fertile ground tidiness. She writes suggests. Something is as good as it's going to get. Tidiness makes me think of health breath or suspended animation while writing needs to breathe and move. I love that description. When we write fast in free we give our writing breathing room and space for movement. We don't stifle it with premature criticism. Only after we've gotten our ideas on paper. Are we ready to shift to slow painstaking editing? Right fast at it slow could be the mantra for national novel writing month. Or Nino. Ramo the month-long challenge in which hundreds of thousands of people try to write a fifty thousand word manuscript during the month of November that works out to an average of sixteen hundred sixty seven words per day across the thirty days of the month. You can't write sixteen hundred sixty seven words per day and do everything else you do if you stop to critique yourself every time you've written ten words you have to keep going and save the editing for December and beyond I wrote the first draft of my time management fable Juliet School of possibilities during no rhyme. Oh 2017 Yep I wrote in an entire draft of a book during November but the book wasn't published until March of two thousand nineteen my editors than I spent big chunks of that time more than a year improving the novel. Honestly I think that was about the right pace. The underlying principle of right fast at it's slow works for other endeavors besides writing and many contacts generating ideas freely allows you and your team to have a lot of content to work with then you can refine the ideas with rigor and discipline. You're better off generating a ton of ideas for how to market your new product and then analyzing what will work verse analyzing each idea as you come up with it. That's a great way to get bogged down being with lots of crummy stuff allows us to sort through the rocks to find the gems and get those gyms polished to share with the world. In the meantime this is Laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time.

"And do you mind sharing a little bit more about the book, you wrote that's fiction that actually is designed to help people understand some of these concepts at the the book, you're describing Juliet school of possibilities is a time management fable. So it's a novella. I've written a lot of books with time management, tips and strategies thinking different ways about how to spend our time. But realized over the years that people really like stories MRs tends to be a way that people remember instruction in in. That's why people come up to me after speeches and tell me about a story. I told like nobody comes up and says. Yeah, that that statistic you had on slide for was life changing for me, not the way people remember their information. So I wrote a story about a young lady an ambitious consultant named Riley one of those people going to client sites by the way, Monday through Thursday. She's newly and management and. Her life is falling apart. You know, she's dropping the ball left and right in her personal life, which might be fine. If her career was going great. But it isn't because she's doing the exact same thing in her professional life, dropping all sorts of balls because he's just reacting to whatever is urgent in right in front of her. And she's gotten ahead over the years by just doing everything doing more than anyone else. But at some point once you're managing lots of teams, you can't just do everything you have to think about what's most important to do. And she really has no capacity to do that. And so we're life is falling apart company gives her and ultimate him thirty days. She's out in the course of this. She goes to a weekend retreat at a little place called Juliet school of possibilities. And there she meets this mysterious mentor figured him. Juliet who's running a sprawling business empire is a single mom of two girls. And yet is also, you know, the calmest person she has ever met despite all she has on her plate in the course of the weekend, Juliette explained to Riley, why this is and shows Riley two different visions of her life kind of like a Christmas, Carol based on different choices Riley might make about how she spends time in. So we hope that Riley emerges from this Cristobal with with new ideas for how to choose well in terms of how she chooses how to spend her time. So interesting I'm actually excited to pick it up one of the reasons that I'm doing this podcast is to help younger women in particular who are maybe much earlier in their careers or still in college..

"Then I can decide which one is the best for me. Awesome. Yeah. I felt the same way that the answer was she crazy is absolutely not. I also would like to point out that anybody who left their corporate job to start their own organizing business can't truly be that risk of. That's not how. I would classify this person based on that. Yeah. And when I read it like, it sounds like there's a lot more excitement about option to even though number one is the comfortable one. You know, the travel was the one thing that she felt like might be different. But you know, with her kids getting older, it may not be as much of a dealbreaker. My tip is actually kind of what we mentioned earlier we were talking about Juliet is kinda picture yourself in five years. Where would you wanna be my last thought was company number one still left you after you left them one time? So you might as well try to because company will number one clearly likes you so much. They might still want you again. So they have to be available as the safe option should number to not work out as well. As you thought it was going to. Yeah. That's she had also had a second part of this question about what should she do to prepare? But we we didn't think like you had to do too much of it. You know, even though we are the sort of people who like to dot every I and cross every t you know, you it's not like she hasn't been working as crazy new world. But she's she's been in the corporate world before like. she she will go in again, I'm his probably not different in terms of what she needs to do to prepare childcare or anything like that. Yeah. Plus again, her kids. I mean, they're only gonna get older they're going to be in school. She already has childcare and backup childcare. So anything else is kinda chill figure that she go figure it out as she goes. So I wouldn't over thanking over. Thank that part. Yeah. Our Sarah love of the week Yuga. I I might not have one yet. Yes. No. Well, we've been talking about Juliet school posssibility is I I love that my publisher, and I have this long relationship a portfolio, which is part of penguin Random House. This is our fifth book together. So that's kind of cool that we've been, you know, we come up with ideas to gather at this point, which is is really nice to have that relationship in that. They've they've stuck with me. So I've been happy about that. Oh, well, I guess on that note, we'll have a publisher at this particular moment. But they the woman Amanda who did my blog and you can find her. Essentials on my website that shoebox dot com. It's at the bottom in she founded, oh, Amanda, she did the redo she's been super responsive. It's almost done. So yes, she she deserves a love the we actually did a great job. So wonderful.

"I I have a career transition coming up had love your advice. I'm transitioning from time self employment to it fulltime corporate job. I'm married and have two daughters. Eight and four I left my work. I love my job as a workplace strategy consultant about two and a half years ago to open up a professional organizing business, I decided that self employment. It's too lonely, and I wanna go back to an office with coworkers. I've interviewed several places and think I'll be back at work within the next two to four weeks. But how do I decide which job to take option one? My previous job has offered me a job. Basically starting I left off same salary giving me the twenty days of vacation, I left with and. Title and same jobs in clients. I know what I'm getting it was a great place. And I'm there for almost eleven years. They're pretty flexible around working hours working from home one day week etcetera. I really love my, boss, etc. The downsize is there was a little bit more sales than I liked. I was getting a little bored, and I was topped out as far as growth, she feels like there's many years retirements before she could possibly move up on the ladder. She didn't feel like there's too much travel. It feels safe option two is a larger firm. This is she knows one person who used to work at an Old Firm. Very well, but doesn't know the company as well. It's larger there's more opportunity to grow and more opportunity to work on different types of projects. They have two things she's really interested in and she feels like they're able to craft the job. So she can do to size of what she really loves, but our bosses will not be in the same city. She feels like there's similar flexibility in terms of working from home, and she doesn't have salary benefits info yet. But she feels like it's likely to be about even there may be a bit more travel. She says it feels like less of a safe bet, but more opportunity to be challenged. I'm pretty risk averse, but I don't wanna play it safe some leaning towards this option. Am I crazy? Well, hopefully that wasn't too long. But I feel like. I think no, she's not crazy. And, you know, first of all if you have actually two job offers in hand like life is good because you actually don't have to take either just as they are the fact that two people really want. You is a good position to be in because you can go back and forth between them to get one of them to be as much as possible of the good parts of both. Right. This is a negotiation situation when you're coming into people actually expect you to negotiate. That's not like a weird thing at all. So take this opportunity to say what both have on the table and decide what you like of each of them. And then go back to each place and say, well, hey, I'd love to work with you. I also have this other offer on the table in. This thing was really important to me that you had there could we maybe do this here. So I mean, if she likes the option, you know, the the risky one a she put it she could go back to the safe place. She has asked for a lot more ask for more money than she left with ask for more vacation days. Maybe get a specific timeline for moving up the ladder. If she thinks there's not opportunities for growth does. She know that for sure maybe they could create something new for her or that she could craft something from that suit. Go back to option wanted say will I'd like these things you can also do that with option to as well say, you know, I got twenty days vacation at my old place. Like, you're going to have to match that they might do. So us I got to work from home when they wake at my old place. I would like to have in writing that. That's okay. All right. Maybe they'd be willing to do this at you know, the point is both of these offers are going to be negotiable. So rather than film as like do I choose one or two? How can I go back to both one and two and get the good parts of both?.

"I mean, so certainly there's something to be said at Riley, isn't management and one of the things she's Arnie as that. She's not, you know, she needs to be more focused on how she deploys her team's time that her team's time is a very valuable resource, and she's just been saying do everything. But that's not what a real leader. Does a realtor says this is the important thing for you to spend your time at this is where I want you to go. I've got great people who will execute on that. But I need to make that decision and be clear on that. And that's what people can then follow and do. But here's the thing. Work will take anything you give it. I mean, it's not really fair to we can say, yes. Work needs to change in managers should be better about this. But it's the nature of the beast that worked will be willing to take anything you give it's up to us to say, I'm not going to give everything because if I give everything I will not be the person that you actually want to employ arm. I will not have the ability to solve these problems. I will not have the creative ideas. I will not be the sort of patient person who can mentor younger people if I don't have the space to renew my energy as well. So you know, I there is a part in. I know I've mentioned this on the podcast before. But for our listeners who've read lean in Sheryl Sandberg's book, she worked at MacKenzie, which is a management consulting firm, which is not ambient company were Riley works. But there are probably similarities and at she. Sheryl Sandberg back when she worked for McKinsey had a manager who told her at one point while people leave 'cause they're burned out all the time. But the thing I don't understand is that everyone who leaves has untaken vacation days, and his point was that, you know, McKenzie would take anything you give it was up to you to say, I need some space I need to recoup, and then I can come back and do this project. And so maybe if these people had taken their vacations or said, actually, you know, I I need to be out to, you know, Friday at five pm, I'm going to be done. And you know, that's it's just not going to happen. I will get back to you midday Saturday, but I need to at least decompress some, you know, you can't do that you take a risk, but you can't do that. And so his point was that you needed to push back in. I think that that's something that we we all need to recognize as well. That's awesome. So is this other than your Netflix series nervous kidding about that? But what do you do you think you're going to be reading more books like maybe? I mean, we'll see how this does. If people are interested in this sort of thing that I'm sure I could write more. I guess, you know, the market tells you how people want their time management advice certainly found that people like thinking about productivity hearing about it. It's one of the reasons we do this product this podcast that we focus on how people can live better lives to this. I definitely like the written word, but I think there's all sorts of ways one can do the written word of fiction nonfiction. So you know, I like to keep it fresh, and hopefully this'll, you know, maybe it was fun to write. So maybe I'll just. Do more fiction just for fun as well. Awesome. Hurry. Well, I hope everybody checks it out who's listening here either on their device or the library or buying it one way or the other. And you can let us know what you think. Yeah. All right. Thanks, and now, we can go to our listener question. Yes. Who is long? But I I will I will summarize 'cause I like your answer. I'll let you go..

"It's it's a question of how you can have the sort of area that you write about talk about stay fresh. And it's something I definitely keep trying to think about how can I present my material in ways that people will want to continue reading because you know, I I'm so hell about a Netflix flicks there his yes, exactly ally. You know, it's always the issue of like. Is actually I'm not even kidding. Could be a good show. You know, cleaning up your calendar with Laura manner him exactly and it'd be like Murray condo. But with time. He awesome. I would watch that one hundred percent, maybe. And the question is how do you make something that is this time oh easily easily 'cause you can show you the way like I could show you throwing something in a trash can I don't know if I can show you that part less visually. You could show the planner or you could show their calendar. You could show snippets you. There would be ways of of doing it while we are totally object says, I think it'd be awesome listening and wants to reach out about that. Yeah. You never know. Will we forgot my question about technology and always on availability because I felt like the book actually had a great nod to that the fact that it was her phone that was emailing her phone getting texted, you know, this book probably couldn't have been it could have been written. I guess you could have been getting memo's, but it would have been hard to write thirty years ago. Because on the weekends. How would you have gotten paying all day? Right. So I guess did you is there subtle message in the book for bosses or leadership to kind of not affect that always on quality from their employees while I think there definitely is and end Juliet is running her business, which is a very successful business without demanding twenty four seven availability from her employees, or, you know, making them unhappy at any way the thing though with with Riley..

"Real conversations with people where you're not checking your devices or racing off to the next thing on that was one thing her mentor did so well Juliette and her interactions with people are priceless. When I feel like I do know people like that. And you know, what they typically do tend to be very successful. I can think to myself of a couple of the pediatric ICU is very intense place. Nitsana was my favorite place. But there's like back in my training there. There seem to be two flavors of physicians who work there. It was like once who were chronically flustered and panicky and once who just had exact same challenges, but acted like Juliette though, high, you know, they they're talking to this nurse houses patient doing like, you know, everything was calm. And yet, probably if anything even better outcomes and so much more pleasant to work. Yeah. That is kind of magic in that way. Now because it turns out, yes, we have lots of challenges and emerge. Insiders and things like that. But very few of those are solved by panicking and running yourself ragged, and so maintaining that calm demeanor. Instead of always saying, I have the space to choose how I'm going to react to this and focusing on people as well because that was one of the things that Juliet had had chosen as a good use of her time say, well, I could answer these ten emails from people who are sort of tangential to my life, or I could focus on making sure that the assistant who has saving my life regularly is very happy. And what would be a better choice for me to do will probably making sure that person is very happy in stays with you and keeps doing the miracles that she does on on your behalf all the time and all the people who work closely with her. She was she was very focused on the people who she knew she needed to make the wonderful things in her life happening and less so on the things outside Briley had less ability to do that chance to learn learn how do that she. Learn I'm Juliet was treating her staff like, humans and Riley. I feel like at least initially was treating them. Like check boxes, you know. And she was a very happy doing so until she. Yes. It was fun to right? I mean, it's it's been out for. I mean, I wrote it a long time ago. Now, it was like a year ago when I wrote the manuscript, and so it's just been in the hopper and since then because off the clock had to come out in the space between that announcement really interested to see how this will, you know, how life will might my career may go, you know, more in this direction, or it's always a question of how you can bad neatening. Yeah..

"She's taking twenty five years in the future. But those of us who aren't there maybe think like five ten years in the future? You know, if there's this vision of you, professionally and personally successful, but also call about it, you know, like very fulfilled. Happy about your life. Like what? Are you doing what does your life look like? And then as you really truly picture. This is say, well, what actions can I take in the present to bring me to that. What things am I doing that move me closer to that? What things doing that? Do not move me closer that. And it's hard. Juliet says this to Riley at one push like, you know, it. It was hard to make this decision as Juliet was building her business. It's even harder. Now that she's got this huge business with people come to her with great ideas, all the time. Right. But you can't take on all of them. So again, you have to pause evaluate in is this a good way to spend my time or maybe could somebody else take this on, you know? So it's the Email comes in there a lot because that tends to that was Riley's particular problem, but it could be anything if you were Riley's coach, and you can imagine herself. And she really did have. I don't know. It seemed almost like she was committed to two more things than is humanly possible to get done. So it actually not only did she need to triage. She actually probably needed to act. Wli prune and get rid of some things. Do you find? I don't know. What do you feel like is the best way to do that? If someone is working for a company, and this wasn't even the thought that I had while I was reading, but I'm just thinking of it now like someone someone's putting themselves in this position. Like will. I am getting you know, twenty miles an hour. And I actually they want me to spend time thinking about each one. The math doesn't add up there had you deal with that. Yeah. The math doesn't add up at all. So because it doesn't add up that I think that's kind of liberating because you can't do everything. So you you have which is again, a hard thing to get your your minds around that you are always disappointing someone so it's just a question of argue disappointing the right person on the right thing are you meeting a bigger expectation by disappointing the obvious one. So in Riley's case made she's not delegating at all. Even though she is in management like she has this control issue about responding to anything. But it she hasn't assistant. She doesn't use for that sort of thing. I think probably because again. She's been the star all her life, and it's hard things. And she's in charge of all the details and to say, oh, well, I have to let go of that somebody else can work out some of the details while I focus on the thing that is most important for for me to do which is, you know, difficult. I think she also was running herself ragged that there's a certain we have to pay attention to our energy levels. And this is so hard to do again when you've got a million things on your plate. It's so easy. Just to say, okay. I'll just work harder. I just need to work longer. I just need to keep going, and I do this too. I mean, whenever I have opened time I work, right? Like, I mean, this is but you can't constantly do that. Without losing the sort of open space in the mind in the letting your mind run a little bit that allows you to come up with a good idea. So someone like Riley probably needs to think about building in a certain amount of time for sleep. Building in time for exercise building in time to have.

"She makes about how she spends her time on so Riley has to choose which way she wants to make life go. And that's that's what goes down in the book. Yes. And it's a very, yeah. It's just a fun can offend has sickle journey that you get to make with Riley. Now, I she's very good character. Like, I feel like I know her many people like her I wasn't always the biggest fan of her. Look I wanted to yell at her through the pages. Even though I knew her heart was in the right place. Do you when you were writing her did you find she was more in line with a certain personality type or generation? Well, it's interesting because I mean, we've talked a lot about the the Gretchen Rubin for tendencies types, and as as an upholder. I am willing to say noticing like, you know, that's just who I am. But I do know people who are more obliged types who can't say no to anything and the more. You know, you talk that they always have something else. They've agreed to do for someone in your like in. What way does that fit in with your larger life goals is like, well, it doesn't but somebody asked so they did it. And they did you say you think she's in oblige. I I would say she's probably in obliged who's learning to have some more upholding tendencies by the by the. The end of it. Because of course, we think the upholders right? You know, it's it's. No, no. It's not about that. It's it's more that you have to recognize that your larger life goals. And in fact, the service you can do for the world isn't always achieved by saying. Yes to everything because you know, as there's the, you know, the phrase of that Julia explained to her that expectations are infinite time is finite. You are always choosing choose. Well. And so what Riley is doing is. She's choosing. What is right in front of her? What is blinking in making the loudest noise? But that's not always the right thing to be focusing on. So in a she's she's learning to she she responds to emails instantly in she will take a conference call while she's meeting with someone else because the conference call was there, you know, and her poor personal life. So she she forgets to go meet up with her boyfriend. Who is then very unhappy about that she kind of cancels lunch with a friend of hers, but in in the worst possible way, so yet life is life is falling apart on on various dimensions. She has disappointing. Everyone was she do you think were you were you trying to rights a bit of a millennial character because she comes off a little. Yeah. Well, she's young. I mean, so if you think about this as being written in say two thousand eighteen two thousand nineteen and she's twenty nine so, yes, she's definitely a millennial manipulate you captured that nice like. But the thing issues, I mean, she's a really hard working millennials. So she's not at all this slacker, and you can the character. She has a you want. I hopefully, you wanna root for her because you see that. She's just come into white shoe consulting firm as like a hard scrabble, Indiana, girl, she hasn't. She didn't go to Harvard. She didn't go to Princeton. She didn't go to those places that all her colleagues has gone to she went on scholarship to Indiana University. She's just incredibly smart incredibly ambitious determine Herman hard worker, and that served her very, well, you know, got her hired at this great consulting firm. It's moved her up the ranks quickly. But now she's in management, and it turns out, you can't just work harder. You actually have to think about what you're doing. And whether the stuff that you're doing it could fill all twenty four hours a day hundred sixty dollars a week, you have to make choices, and she doesn't really know how to do that. I think part of it is also that you know, the times of this age there's just so much task fragmentation. If you're not able to make those choices than you're kinda like that's part of that's part of the key is making the choices to start with what do you feel? I mean when she is able to put it all together. What do you feel like was the key advice that that got her? Yes. So I think that Juliet needs to impart sort of my time management advice to her..

"So they asked if I was entrusted by had ideas and said, yeah, sure, I mean, I like ride. Fiction. I've been doing that NATO Raimondo stuff for years end. So over the next few weeks, I can realize hey, I could actually create a time management fable out of the basic material that had been this national novel writing months piece ahead to you really do a lot of extracting in rewriting. I basically just kept three characters in a setting. But everything else was different. But yeah, that's that's how it how it came together. Yet. I mean, you do seem like the perfect person to write this because you have the time management interest in the nonfiction experience. But you had been experimenting a lot with with NAMA writing, and you would even written a novel previously. So it totally makes sense. Yeah, now, and I've learned a lot from writing that novel the Cortlandt boys that was came out in a two thousand fourteen and I love fiction. I love reading it in have for years. And so is fun to sort of try my hand at it is a very short. Book. I mean, it's it's it's an it's so I got an advanced copy. And I totally enjoyed reading it. It was one of those books where it it was like, oh, I kind of wish it was a little like, I gotta I gotta take in more of it. Because I liked the characters and for a book that had a lesson to it. It was it was it was like a page Turner. Like I wanted to know what was going to have been. And so it was actually really fun to read. So if you're looking for a book that does kind of address some sort of basic time as principals, and as we'll talk about definitely delves into some more. I don't know generational dilemmas that a lot of people run into our challenges that we we see working with people that have different types of mindsets about time, which is something I've definitely experienced but written in a way that's just kind of like you feel like reading a novel. This is a great book. You could definitely read it on like short flight and feel like you've gotten something out of it. Yeah. So we would I would love it. If you would do that. Sat out if you have if you have enjoyed listening to this podcast. I would really appreciate if you would. Yeah. Pick up a copy. So just the the brief synopsis of it is that it's called Juliet school of possibilities. And the main character is a young consultant named Riley who works at M B and company, which is a major consulting firm who's the name? It could be any of. It's not any of them. It's a mishmash of all the major consulting firms. But anyway, she works at place called Ambien company and her life is falling apart on various dimensions..

"Welcome to the best of both worlds. This is Laura this episode eighty four today, we'll be talking about a project. That's very dear Tim, be a little book called Juliet school of possibilities. Which is launching today March twelfth if you're listening to this episode when it first airs, so yeah, this book has been in the works for quite a while a richer, just Sarah. And I were talking about this earlier that I gave her an advanced copy. But the advanced copy came out a long time ago. It's a it's been a while. Right. It has been also feel like you were talking about the concept of it for like forever. Although I think it turned into something different from what you initially envisioned. Yeah. No, it was I had actually well, it's a long story. I had written a story that was called something similar to Juliet school of possibilities. Okay. It was like the thing school for domestic arts or something. It was it was an asshole novel writing month novel many. Ago that when you write fifty thousand words during November. And so the way this all happened as July two thousand seventeen the there is a couple of days there that was actually a big momentous for many reasons a one is this. This woman named Sarah Hart Unger, posted on her blog that she was looking to start a podcast. And I read that thought, hey, I wonder if she'd be willing to do with me. And then here we are a year and a half was it was like just meant to be the I remember that Email. I was like, oh, really? Yes. It was. So. Yeah, that that happened in that few days. And then I also I was on a little writing retreat. Actually, I was up in the Poconos finishing the manuscript of off the clock which was due says, but the came out last year, and then I got an Email from my editor on off the clock. Who said, you know, we are looking to commission a fable that there's the genre of sort of business personal productivity books that is stories instead of just straightforward instruction. So novellas at there's a lot of them out there. Obviously the most famous is probably who moved by cheese. I think what triggered this is that they knew they were gonna publish Spencer Johnson's follow on with that is called out of the maze. Which is the who moved my cheese follow up a just came out.

"But the fact is you want to make sure you do have that money set aside for that system when it does eventually crash. Yeah. In most sellers, they don't wanna be scheduling contractors and workers to come in. And make repairs on their house. And so if you can find a sweet spot of a dollar amount off of the final purchase price of the home. I mean that's going to be the best way to do. It not just for you put for the seller in most cases, so keep that in mind instead of having a laundry list of issues that you want the seller to address just for money off the price of the house and also wanted to mention to try not to let your emotions get the best of you. Because there's going to be a lot of negotiating. There's gonna be a lot of offers going back and forth, and they're going to say, no like, are you crazy? You know, whatever they decide to tell you, and it might start to feel personal. But the fact is a game they are trying to get the best dollar for their property, and you're trying to spend as little as possible as well. So this is another reason that having a great agent will insulate you from that a little bit because they're used to take in the responses from the sellers, and sort of translating that into language that maybe your agent knows that you can handle. But yeah, just don't let it get personal. It's just about each party trying to get the best bang for their buck. You're gonna wanna be aware too. That your lenders going to order an appraisal to. The value of the house to make sure that what you're paying is the same or potentially less than what the house is worth according to an appraiser, and if for some reason that appraisal comes in lower than the agree to purchase price. Well, then you have an option to either back out or to renegotiate the price. But just be aware that an appraisal is standard thing that happens in pretty much every buying situation. So that's a list of things that happened during due-diligence keep in mind. There's other contingencies as well. So make sure you check with your realtor on that. So after the break, we're gonna talk about things that happen after due diligence leading up to actually closing on the house. Hi, I'm Laura vendor town, I'm the author of several time management books, including the brand new Juliet school of possibility off the clock and one hundred sixty eight hours and also the host of I hurt media's newest before breakfast.

"The kids birth certificates like everything just anything he might need bring it in. But when we've done that it's actually been. I've often find I have more stuff than I need. But having it done than than your good. And then you can go so go do it. If you haven't done it, please please go all right off the soapbox. So do you have any are you going to be using your passports in the next year is with with the kids? Do you have your year kinda planned out travel? We might wind up in Canada. We went to the UK with a big kid last year. And we also took them to Montreal both great destinations that require passports. We may wind up in Canada at some point this year. I'm not sure if we will we haven't totally planned that out yet. But you've got some cool travel on deck your. Yeah. We're I mean, we haven't decided all of it, which I kinda think is fun. I like the idea that we don't actually know what we're doing for summer yet. We typically I would say are typical travel times are now spring break kind of end of summer like August like right before school starts, and then winter break because you realize it soon as your kids are in school like you're no longer able to stick some random week in the middle of may or something you're kinda limited. So we're doing a Disney cruise for spring break, which was my first cruise and actually really looking forward to this because we're doing it with friends. Is I think we'll make it even more fun. We are doing we don't know where to me in August. And I'm hoping maybe I'm going to get inspired. By this episode. Is it does seem like another time that might be a nice time to go back to Canada? And then in the winter, maybe some kind of ski slash Philadelphia combo again that might be our new thing. And then Josh, and I have a couple of couples trips coming up one to Nashville one in the summer to Colorado on both for concerts, agus Genevieve, I know houses, but Genevieve is already wailing about you're leaving her for Apple's Phipps just like I can send it. So I'm wailing in the background. I think you're right. Well, hopefully that will resolve itself resolve I've never been on a cruise. Maybe sometime. We'll you know, we'll have to report back on the Disney cruise because I'm sure that's the kind of cruise. My kids would wanna do. Right. Like, we we went to Alani two years ago, the Hawaii Disney resort and they love that. So I assume it's sort of various similar is like that only cruise ship form. So we'll we'll probably do. Doing that at some point in our life. Yeah. We tend to do we're we're probably not van big spring break thing this year because we're doing Disney in February. We have to summer weeks already planned there should be tweaks one Michael sisters lake house with certain extended family get together. And then we're doing a week in the jersey shore the end will probably doing something in the last week of August to just 'cause nobody's working. So it's a pretty easy way to take off. But this does start adding up calculated last week. I probably took six weeks of at least why vacation. I mean, it's never one hundred percent for me. I usually do you know somewhere between three and ten hours of work on any given vacation week from my time logs, but it's still it's a lot of time. And I'm not sure how how sustainable that. That is. So we'll funding don't have six weeks now in with my schedule works schedule-wise. So that's not gonna happen. It's it was. But the mean, we set that sort of bar like now the kids are like what are three. We're doing our the central three league. No, not three trips. But oh, well sway the sort of over did that. But yeah, no. It's just a one one seven before we get into our guest. This is the last week before Juliet school of possibilities comes out. Speaking of the jersey shore. Yes, Molly or staying in his semi the house that hurt her school of possibilities..
