One of the benefits to being a real estate agent is the freedom that this business gives you.
There’s no time clock to punch or strict hours to abide by. You have the freedom to work whenever and wherever you choose.
THIS, however, can also be a recipe for disaster.
Sleeping ‘til 10am, a long lunch until 2 in the afternoon, then scrolling through Facebook until 5pm … before you know it, an entire day has slipped through the cracks and you have nothing to show for it. Can you relate?
You’ve heard me say it before, “Routine is the sign of an ambitious individual.”
Routine is what separates the average agent from the top producer.
I get asked constantly about what the most important skills are in order to reach success, and to that, I always say, the ability to PLAN and EXECUTE.
That’s why today, I’m sharing the hour-by-hour plan for your perfect day.
It’s up to YOU to execute. 🙂
5 Rules For Creating Your Perfect Day
RULE #1: Always start with the personal and professional end results
The goal here is to start at the end, and work backwards.
Ask yourself, “What are my goals?”
Then SCHEDULE the time to produce the results.
RULE #2: Do the important stuff first!
These are the things that are really going to move the needle in your business.
So when you’re looking at your day, schedule them for the AM, and when you’re scheduling for the week, plan them for Monday or Tuesday.
RULE #3: Avoid energy-sucking vampires
There are always going to be people or things that distract you.
The key here is to block out your schedule so that there’s no room for those energy-sucking vampires!
RULE #4: Do everything in blocks of time!
Instead of trying to multi-task on a million different things, schedule out your day in blocks.
RULE #5: Put it in your schedule
It’s simple, if it’s not in your schedule, it doesn’t exist.
