Get organized!

Real Estate Agent with Corcoran 30HA1040502

What Works for me is Keeping a Journal! 

Do you keep a journal of your everyday activities?

Do you right a todo list?

I do it all the time. It sounds rudimentary and I know it. But it usually works.

Keep an index card of all your todo list and check them off as you accomplish them one by one.

It will keep you very organized and most of all you get to remember all the things you have to do other than all the meetings you have to attend.

What if you lose the index card? I am notorious for sticky notes, loose paper etc. I finally decided to use a small notebook.  A mess because I have to pull over to write in a hurry, but it works for me.

Each person has their own version -- for some it's written on paper, some on an electronic PDA, and others in a computer... different things for different people. But all important.

I'm with Lori. I usually used loose sheets of paper or print outs of my To Do's. But they have a way of disappearing on you. I'd go with a palm pilot or something of the sorts but I guess I'm an old-fashioned kind a guy.

Anyway, I bought a Black N' Red notebook. I keep all of my new client files in there. I carry it everywhere with me so that if I have a new client to price out, it goes right into the journal. Then from the journal I transfer it into an actual file and quote sheet. :)

The key to business efficiency is keeping organized... With some many ways to accomplish this task it shouldn't be too dificult from a note book, to a palm pilot or smart phone !!!

I keep my week at a glance calendar handy and write all my notes, to do's, calls in it daily.  Post names of people that I've come in contact with and what my next step is and put that forward on the day I intend to do it.  I use a highlighter and check off stuff as it's done.  What I like most about doing it that way is when I go to do my taxes and can't identify a receipt (who did I buy lunch for that day) I can go right to my calendar and tell who I worked with that day.  Never leave home without my calendar.

Index card would be a no go for me! I am more of a digital calendar and note kind of guy!
