Recently I had the chance to reconnect with an old friend who has done very well for himself in the world of real estate investing. It had been close to a decade since I had last seen him. I asked him if he was still aggressively growing his business. To my surprise he said he had sold everything but a few key units and just does light maintenance now. When I asked what prompted him to move in this direction he said, “I realized I can only eat so much”. As I was leaving the party he gave me a firm handshake and said, “remember, you gotta know when enough is enough”.
In a world of more, more, more, it’s refreshing to see someone who reached their goals and then consciously made a decision to pull back so they could focus on enjoying other aspects of their life. Do you know when enough is enough?
