Martha Fay on Your Own Standards

I did what I understood, and what I was interested in, and what I loved.  It was not reckless, as I secretly worried it was, but neither was it as brave as some people have suggested.  It was urgent and irresistible – like falling in love with exactly the wrong person by all objective standards and exactly the perfect one by the only standard that matters to you. – Martha Fay – on buying a house in Italy

I might be closing on some property myself in a few months. Nothing as exciting as a house in Italy, but exciting for me nonetheless. Fay’s description of “urgent and irresistible” is exactly how I feel about my passion for real estate investing.

What are you passionate about?

What hobbies or goals make you feel like you’re falling in love?

Are you able to dismiss naysayers who might say you’ve picked the wrong one “by all objective standards” and instead stick to “exactly the perfect one by the only standard that matters to you?”
