My experience with death is watching from the sidelines. Most dying persons I’ve sat with appeared ready in their own way. Perhaps you’ll feel ready, or have some things left undone. Find peace with yourself, if at all possible. “Be at peace with God, whatever you conceive him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.” --Max Ehrmann, Desiderata, 1952
Some people chose to plan a “living wake,” having a big party for all their relatives and friends before they die. If this is something you hope to do, you will need to plan ahead, and talk with family and friends to help make arrangements. Remember, because nobody really knows when you will die, you may not be present after all, or you may linger after attending your exit party!
Start advocating for yourself! Not everyone is able to do this well, so you might need to rely on someone else to advocate for you. Have vital discussions with them now, to ensure they are supporting what is really important to you.
This is a time of re-evaluating priorities. Do you know the things that matter the most to you now? You may want to practice the “six months to live” test. What would you do, where would you live, who would you be with if you had six months to live? Now is a good time to think this through.
No one has the “right way” or all the answers to journey through illness, and eventual dying. Just as every birth is a unique experience for every individual, the way you choose to go out of this life will be your own unique journey.
With owners’ or local authority’s permissions granted, consider taking shots and videos of parks, golf courses, local restaurants and other amenities in the area. These creative works will almost certainly enhance your website and social media postings.
Whether you choose to fly your drone at first with the functions on your smartphone or whether you use a remote, the left joystick typically controls up and down motions as well as left and right turns. The more you press the joystick, the faster your drone will go in your chosen direction.
When you take drone shots, you are marketing a new perspective of a property, and showing a new type of beauty in its surroundings. These unique and beautiful shots cannot be captured any other way, unless you hire an expensive airplane or helicopter. You can pan, zoom, and do other cinematic effects.
Many middle market homes listed by others now routinely have drone shots because all real estate agents know that old adage: “A picture is worth a thousand words.” While all real estate professionals try to show listings as favorably and as accurately as possible, using drone shots gives them an advantage that few other new technologies can offer.
The use of drones in real estate sales is no longer limited to mansions and estates. Your competitors are already using drones or hiring drone pilots to provide aerial photos and videos of properties, and you should, too. Just check their listings; if they have more and better ones than you do, it may be that a drone will help you compete.
