Are you working on the right thing in your real estate business
Updated: Sep 14, 2021
Do you ever have those days or weeks where you feel you’ve worked hard but don’t actually feel like you’ve achieved a lot?
I find that for me those weeks happen when I haven’t taken the time to plan and to prioritise. Where I’ve sat down and just jumped straight into work without any real strategy or plan.
And often I’m left feeling so busy that I feel like I don’t have time to stop and do planning or strategising.
I’ve found that in order to make planning a priority, I actually need to schedule in time each day and week to stop and make a plan, to pause and reprioritise what is most important and urgent to get done each day, and then either schedule, delegate or simply stop doing the things that are not helping me or my clients push the needle forwards.
And coincidently when I am more planned and organised I actually feel less stressed and that I have more than enough time in the day to get it all done, instead of flying by the seat of my pants all day, feeling stressed and like I’ve worked so hard and not really got anywhere.
I’ve got time aside in my diary each morning to work on my daily plan, and a time each week to plan and strategise for the week ahead, and this makes a lot of difference when I stick to it! I am not perfect all the time and often I slip back into working hard mode, but I’m getting better at recognising my stress and overwhelm and the need to pause, plan and prioritise my days, and making that actually happen.
If you feel you’re working hard but not achieving your goals, and feeling overwhelmed with everything you need to get done then I recommend scheduling some time at the start of the days or week to write your list, prioritise and schedule. And if you need help with that, then we can book a session where I can help you work out a plan just for you.
