Monday Morning Coffee for August 20, 2012

by Doug & Gwen Campbell at Sun Bay Associates

 Monday Morning Coffee


“All I really need to know I learned in kindergarten.”

~ American book title (Robert Fulghum, author)

“The children are watching us.”

~ Italian film title (Vittorio De Sica, director)


Turns out the children are listening, too. The question is, what are they learning and what are we teaching?

No matter whom we interact with, we should all take some time to reflect upon how our practices are matching up to our ethics and beliefs. We all have the potential to produce a profound effect on the people in our lives, both directly and indirectly. How we choose to act in our encounters helps define who we are: are we good stewards, good managers, good parents?

Consider the language we use when we deal with other people. Those who value power over action will use the language of judgment and superiority: “That idea is doomed..." or "You will never succeed..." or "That project is a waste of time.” Such language only serves to predict its own end and unfortunately, that end is often failure.

Now consider language that recognizes individuality while setting us up as collaborators: “I understand what you want..." or "I can only imagine how hard this is for you..." or "I'd like to help.” As we acknowledge the needs and feelings of others, we have better opportunities to show the same respect we’d expect in return. The encounter becomes a win-win situation.

As we interact with others, a good yardstick by which to measure our actions is to imagine how children would perceive them. Do we play by the rules? Are we being fair? Do we share? Are we doing unto others as we would have done to ourselves? During your next meeting, imagine a seven year old is watching the proceedings. Would you conduct yourself any differently?

Before children start to learn the later lessons of failure and success associated with competition, they first learn to “play well with others.” The politics of the playground still hold some powerful lessons for us, too

Dunedin Real Estate - It's a Lifestyle

by Doug & Gwen Campbell at Sun Bay Associates

Every community in the nation has 3 bedroom, 2 bath with 2 car garage houses.  The Dunedin real estate market is no exception.  What is unique about the Dunedin real estate market is the Dunedin lifestyle.  Dunedin is located in Pinellas county, on the Gulf Coast.  It has shopping centers, restaurants, boutiques, grocery stores, good schools, and everything all communities need to thrive.  The Dunedin lifestyle is a little different.

Since Dunedin is on the Gulf Coast, it is a waterfront community.  There are stately mansions along the waterfront.  There are numerous city parks for all to enjoy.  The Toronto Blue Jays farm team is in Dunedin.  Dunedin has its own city marina.  And festivals, if you like festivals, you will love Dunedin.  There is a Wine the Blues festival, a Mardi Gras festival, a Cinco de Mayo festival, arts festivals, antique festivals, Olde Fashioned Christmas festival, Music in the Park, and so much more.

Buying Dunedin real estate is your key to a lifestyle that is so much more than just having a house, it is having a home and a unique lifestyle.  There are bricked streets lined with stately live oak trees, the magnificent Gulf of Mexico coastline, Honeymoon Island, Caladesi Island and more.  If you want a lifestyle, and a waterfront community, you need to take a serious look at the Dunedin real estate market.  There is something for everyone.
