Schedules, planning, accountability...blah, blah, blah. 

Hey, I got into this business because I want to be my own boss, right?  I don't need no stinkin' schedule, I don't want to have to plan and organize my days, and I sure as heak don't want to have to be accountable for my productivity! 

That is, unless I want to be SUCCESSFUL!!

I was a high school teacher for 9 years before I became a REALTOR® and before that I was in college so up until 2 years ago, I lived and died by the almighty schedule.  My first year as a full-timer, I was pretty clueless when it came to being out on my own, I didn't have a business plan or any semblance of a schedule. 

However, a year ago, this all changed.  First of all, I moved to RE/MAX Access with the GREATEST broker/owners in the WORLD - Sheila Moran and Kristin Moran, second I wrote a business plan (again thanks to the guidance of my broker), and finally I made myself a weekly schedule

I am not saying that I follow this to the letter, some weeks I'm lucky to follow it at all but I have it and I look at it every day!  I fully believe that this has made an enormous difference in my productivity, my efficiency and my sanity

I thought that I would make myself vulnerable and share my schedule with all you great Active Rainers!  Perhaps some of you veterans can give me some advice on how I can improve it and if there are some out there without a schedule please feel free to take it, use it, change it or toss it!  So, here it is...

wow, this is a pretty simple schedule.  I guess I always like to complicate it or overdo it and that makes it hard to follow.  Hmmmm, Interesting.  Something to think about.

This was a perfect post for me to read on Sunday.  I love the simplicity of the schedule.  This totally motivates me to create one of my own. Thank you Jeanna for sharing.  Thanks David for reposting.
