"It's not how much time you spend but how you spend your time that matters".

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Real Living GreatWest

Time is life. It is irreversible and irreplaceable. To waste your time is to waste your life, but to master your time is to master your life and make the most of it. To make the most of your time you need to become an effectiveness expert. Effectiveness means selecting the best task to do from all the possibilities available and then doing it the best way. Making the right choices about how you'll use your time is more important than doing efficiently whatever task you find urgent.

Here are 15 steps to help you become an effectiveness expert:

1. Count all of your time as "On-Time" and try to get satisfaction out of every minute.
2. Don't waste time regretting disappointments and setbacks.

3. Don't waste time feeling guilty about what you don't do.

4. Remind yourself, "there is always enough time to do the important things." If it's important, there's time.

5. Look for new techniques each day to gain time.

6. Go to bed earlier so you can get up earlier and get started earlier.

7. Don't read unimportant email or return un-important phone calls until after important tasks are   completed.

8. Give up "waiting time" and turn all time into a "gift of time" to use to plan, practice or perfect.

9. Review your primary goals and objectives daily and identify activities to do each day to reach them.

10. Always plan first thing in the morning and set priorities for the day.

11. Keep a list of "things to do" each day, prioritized, and start each day with the most important.

12. Give yourself time off and special rewards when you've done the important things.

13. Do first things first.

14. Work smarter not necessarily harder.

15. Don't procrastinate, ask yourself, "What am I avoiding" and then confront it head on.

We all do better when we have structure and organization in our daily activities. Please be sure you are following your All Star Coaching Action Plan. If you are not sure where you are in your Action Plan, let me know and we'll work together to get you back on track.

 

Next week is the All Star Coaching trip to Italy. 27 people are making the journey with us. If you are not going this year, hopefully you will join us next year. We will still be available by email daily and by phone if there are any real estate emergencies. You will still have a coaching session and I will explain to you how during this week's session.

 

Thought for today: If you want to be effective, spend at least as much time on the important as you do on the urgent.

 

Have a productive day!
