How a yellow piece of paper can help you maximize your investment at your next convention

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

FR As I am preparing to leave for the Keller Williams Family Reunion in New Orleans tomorrow, there is one important thing I’ll be packing…a few sheets of yellow paper. 

 After attending this event for the last 8 years, what I’ve found is that there are so many great ideas, so much information, so many things I want to do when I get home…that I’m simply….overwhelmed.  Ever felt that way?  I thought so!  Here’s a simple system that’s sure to help you make sense of all you’ve learned AND get you into ACTION! It all starts with a few sheets of yellow paper. 

Label the first sheet My Aha’s.  Every time you hear something that’s an aha for you…put it on that sheet. Yes, its ok to write them in your book or on handouts from the class. By putting them all in one place you can quickly refer back to them.

Label the second sheet My Implementation List.  Any great ideas you hear should all go on this page.  Again, every great idea is in ONE place. 

On the plane ride home, get out your Implementation list and sort them into categories such as “Business, Lead Generation, Recruiting, Personal, etc”  I simply use colored highlighters. Once you’ve got them color coded, its easy to identify all of the ideas you had in each category. 

Under each category, ask yourself “Which 3 things if I implemented them in the next 90 days would have the greatest impact on my business, lead generation, recruiting, etc.?”  Put those 3 ideas down in the order of importance.

Once you’ve got your list prioritized, it’s easy to add those things to your 411 and get into ACTION!!!!  You’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ll get things implemented when you start with a plan.

Oh, and why yellow you ask???  It’s simply easy to locate in your piles of books and paper.

If you see me in New Orleans, be sure to stop me.  I’ll have plenty of yellow pages to share.

In Cuture,
