I decided to sit down and make a list of Jacksonville apartments for rent that are located in a specific area of the city that I really wanted to live in. I figured this would help me go through each one and chose one that would really make me happy if they had any open units for me to rent. In the past, I always went about things in a very disorganized fashion, and then I would end up getting overwhelmed or losing out on a really great place. This is often how I operate with a lot of things, and I struggle to stay focused and do things well.
Ever since I was a child, I have listened to peole tell me that I am not giving as much attention to things as I should. I get bored. I can’t explain why that is. I only know that it happens. Because of the fact that I get bored, I give up on doing things in an orderly fashion. Rather than picking a starting point that is at a logical place, I will start somewhere in the middle. This is very upsetting to other people, but it is just the way my brain works. I really wanted to do better than that with my apartment hunting research. So, I sat down, made out a list of apartments, along with phone number for each, and a list of questions for each place.
I made myself sit down and start from the beginning of the list. I then called each number and asked questions until I completed everything. What I found was that this was a lot easier to do than the usual way that I handle things. And I found a place that I really want to get. I am on the way over there to rent a place right now. I am pretty excited about it, too.
