During the rental property renovations we went through a few weeks ago, we stayed with Dave’s parents who live in Nanaimo. They also live right across from a large school yard and just steps from a big park. These two places happen to be massive breeding grounds for GIGANTIC black bunnies and the odd brown and white bunny.
Bram, our wonderful pet and best friend, is completely obsessed with the bunny rabbits. He wakes up at the crack of dawn anxious to get out there and chase them. Our normally laid back and easy going dog turns into a crazed hound on a mission. But, happily for me and sadly for him, he has never even come close to catching one.
You see … when he races into the school yard the bunnies scatter. They are EVERYWHERE and he can’t choose which one to chase so he tries unsuccessfully to chase them all. If he would select one little bunny victim and focus he just might have a shot, but he doesn’t. Instead he runs after different ones, changing direction rapidly thinking the next bunny HAS to be easier to catch. The only thing he does successfully is exhaust himself. It makes my job of walking and exercising him early in the morning easy, but he is never satisfied because he never even gets close to any one bunny.
Does this sound like your attempts at real estate investing? Or just wealth creation in general? You’re not alone. I recently wrote about this lack of focus (I called it Shiny Penny Syndrome) for Early to Rise … and about how this syndrome just could be holding you back from your dreams.
