Finding Time To Blog

 WIN

 

When speaking with clients, agents and other professionals ..I am frequently asked..

How do you find time to blog?

 

 

Here are a few of my responses

  • 'Gee you look really nice, great looking outfit. How did you have time to put yourself together for this appointment?'

  • 'Your hair looks great, when did you have time to go to the salon?'

  • 'Did you take a shower today? How did you make time?' 

  • 'You ate today. When did you find time?'

  • 'Gas in your car?

 You get the idea. After a few questions and a bit of laughing my point is made.

You make time for what is important!

As mentioned on page 15 of my book  Real Estate the Rome Way  .... WIN is an  important acronym that works to focus my concentration.

It stands for What's Important Now. The more you use these three words, the more you understand the power of What's Important Now?

WIN is how I am

Margaret~TBM!!! (Terrific blog missy!) You are certainly a WINner in my book and I HAVE yoru book, thank you very much. Glad I took the time to read your HOW-TO, WHEN TO blogpost!

(I have a few backed up in draft at the ready because sometimes ideas will spark other ideas and I get to it right away while the idea is fresh and knock it out in no time. Except when I come up with them in the shower--that poses a problem--ha!)

If it's important to you, you find the time. We all have to prioritize, and if blogging isn't high up there on your list, it won't get done. Great post.

Dana, Go back to your previous posts and make new ones but using the same ideas. 

Steve, Please give us some examples when you start using WIN.

Gayle, So glad you like the book. We need to come up with a note taking device for our shower walls.

Wayne and Jean, Prioritize is what we all need to do.

WIN is useful, yet knowing what comes first is also important and sometimes more important than other important tasks. Your response about the value of prioritizing WIN tasks is my biggest challenge, yet you have provided inspiration that it can and should be done. So, let's see what happens this month. Thanks for the push.

Margaret - Wonderful post.  There are so many times when I say "oh I don't have time for that.."  But you are right, we make time for what we want to make time for.  Thanks for the reality check.

You are so right - somehow, whatever we consider to be most important does get done.

You are so right! What I love hearing these days from clients who have retired is "I'm so busy now that I'm retired, how did I ever find the time to work?" They've obviously also identified their priorities now in retirement.

Margaret, there are times when I absolutely make the time, and others where I make the decision to put something else in top priority. I always wish I could do it all!

Great point. If you schedule it, it will be done - if you wing it, it may never get done.
