Have You Written Your Week's Goals Yet?

By
Real Estate Agent with Atlas Property Group and Abbey Church Properties

It's Sunday evening...again.

This past week, I passed the Indiana Broker's exam, ordered new signs, met with a Buyer's agent, bought some office supplies, helped with homework, did laundry, interviewed a roofer/handyman, went to the grocery store, revised the budget, and did a lot of cooking and cleaning.

So why do I feel like I haven't done anything?

I'm a list maker, as is my partner. We work best when we have a tick list of things to do, to investigate, to take care of. There is nothing more satisfying to us than to check an item off the list.

Most productivity experts and motivational speakers tell you that it is essential to clearly state your goals. So in keeping with my native character and with the best practice of work habits, my goals for the following week are:

1. Close on a property on Friday

2. Budget for a major rennovation of our office space

3. Order new business cards (they can say Broker now!) and send out a press release

4. Mail some information to a client in Virginia

5. Finish the proposal for our new radio program

6. Order post cards announncing a new service

7. Purchase a new print ad

8. Print neighborhood fliers

9. Take pictures for a new listing

10. Begin painting in a property that needs to be turned into a rental.

Now THAT'S a list that I will LOVE to check off!

 Lisa I am glad I found your blog today, I was talking to myself

about getting better organized for the week and tada>>>

I know the best think to do to be more productive is to make a list,

I have just forgotten how important it is for me to do, I do get side tracked too

easily.

Thanks

they are so important and to have them written down and visualize is equally important. I believe you have to have a way to measure your progress.
