How Much Time is wasted on Junk Emails, Text, Blog, Facebook?

Real Estate Broker/Owner 01293735 CA

 I answer my phone, email, text, blogs, facebook all day everyday. I am so happy for a PDA to stay current on all of these connections. I remember when just a few years ago I would go home at the end of the day and hvae 25+ emails and calls to answer. It wore me out and drovemy poor husband crazy.

  Now my frustration is the volume of emails, texts, facebook, and blogs I receive. Due to constant marketing, this keeps increasing. It seems my information is accessed more and more by all types of people and companies. I have so much JUNK information I have to delete all day long.

  It amazes me how I can go to bed and be all caught up. I then wake up 7 hours later and regularly have 15+ minutes or reading and deleting before I can get to the responses I need to make from during the night. I also have to answer emails, facebook, and Active Rain.

  I will always remember what Tom Ferry said a few years ago - at least we can work on real estate much of the time on our couch in the evening or early mornings. Many people in this economy have to go work in a restaurant or warehouse for exytra money.

  I figure as time goes on, we will have more and better filters for the information blasted to us daily and in increasing quantities. These are all very useful tools for my life and my business for which I am grateful. It is a process to use them effectively and efficiently - like most of our world, changing fast and constantly.

7 hours ? Where did you find that time.

Unfortunatly thats the system the more you put yourself out there the more you get back.

Enjoy the day
