You’ve probably heard it said that time is your most valuable commodity.
When you can manage your time well, lots of other things fall into place.
The people who can’t seem to master time management end up feeling frazzled all the time, never really getting anything accomplished and always running behind.
As a real estate professional, time management is key to success.
Here are a few tips for managing your time that we hope will inspire you, whether you are struggling or knocking things out of the park. Either way, time management can always be improved upon!
1. Make a Plan
If you have a plan, you will feel more in control of everything that is going on. Even if you have to deviate from it occasionally, it’s still there to give you that outline of what to expect.
2. Create a List
You might think this is the same thing as a plan, but a daily to-do list is more specific.
Write down things that need to be done and rank them in order of what is most important.
Don’t allow yourself to get sidetracked by things that aren’t relevant.
3. Set the Pace
When you pursue a career like real estate, you are essentially your own boss.
This means you have to set your own pace and stick to it. Don’t try to follow someone else’s lead.
However, there are successful people out there you can stand to learn something from.
For example, take a look at our interview with Josh Altman of Bravo TV’s million dollar listing.
4. Keep Focused
Don’t let yourself get distracted by things that may come up along the way.
Stick to the path you are on and keep your eye on the prize.
By setting realistic goals and rewarding yourself when you obtain them, you’ll have more success and manage your time better.
5. Learn to Say No
You can’t help everybody at the same time and you can’t be everything to everybody.
There’s always going to be someone who wants what you have and wants it for free.
Know that your services offer value and don’t get taken in by people who just want to take advantage of you.
Build the right relationships with clients so that you can ensure long-term success.
One day you will look back at your life and think about how you spent your time.
You won’t want to have wasted it so spend it wisely now! You’ll thank yourself later.
