Share your favorite survival tips. As a board director, as a manager.

Let’s be real. Sometimes some board and some managers suck, as do homeowners. Some board directors are vicious to managers and each other. Some managers start letting things slip because they have so much to do. Some homeowners you wonder how they became full-fledged adult.

My survival tip is to LET IT GO 🎶 ❄️

Act like a socialized adult human being.

Also, get therapy.

Always act professional as though you were getting paid for it. Let the idiots throw sarcasm or scream complaints. I’m a professional and I’ll keep acting like one because I’m here for one reason, to do a job and I do a damn good job of it.

Read your bleepin CCRs. All your answers are in those little pages. And always remember, you signed up for the HOA, it wasn’t a surprise.

Find at least one thing a year you can improve (eg, new park bench by the school bus stop, baby changing stations in the pool bathroom, cut back overgrown trees.)

Remind yourself (and complainers/haters) that the world does not revolve around you.

Or the HOA.

Own up to a mistake and remind the person that pointed it out that everyone makes them. It's not the mistake, it's how you correct it.

My favorite saying to a Board member or homeowner after I've made a mistake and they want to pour some salt into it is this: If I am perfect 99.9% of the time, I'm still going to make 5-10 mistakes a month; and this is one of them!
