First of all, the Honu (pronounced ho new) is the endangered Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle and the Ilio Holo Ka Uaua (pronounced ee lee oh- ho-low-ee-ka- oo-ah-oo-ah) is the endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal .
On a bright sunny day, Honu Sally was basking in the sun on Laniakea Beach on the North Shore of Oahu. She came on the beach when she had had enough to eat from the deep blue Pacific Ocean and in need of resting. She didn't make the mistake of doing things too quickly and got enough rest before heading out again to exercise, eat seaweed and get her work done. Sally made sure to always get her needed rest so she could attend to her business and family. She had a balanced life.
On that same day, Ilio Holo Ka Uaua George was out in the gorgeous cool blue Pacific Ocean and came up for air and to see what was going on. He looked towards the beach and saw Sally basking in the sun. He taunted and teased her and told her she didn't need all that sleep and to come play with him. She ignored him and he finally gave up and went to find some spiny lobster, crab and octopus to dine on. George hadn't slept in a few days and he kept going and going and not giving himself the rest he needed. He was a go getter and didn't even take time to spend with his family.
The next day George got off track and strayed into waters unknown. A tiger shark attacked him and he was a goner and out of business. His family didn't even miss him because he was never around. Sally continued on with her business, her life and tended to her family. She knew they would miss her if she didn't focus on all areas of her life that are important to her.
Both the Hawaiian Turtle and the Monk Seal are endangered species but both have different qualities. It's the ‘nature of the beast'. As Real Estate Professionals we all have different qualities and the way we run our businesses. No matter how we conduct our business there has to be balance in all we do to be successful.
Family, business, personal time.
Balance is key to success.
