Is Your Day Planned or an Accident?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Classic Realty Associates


Honestly,  don't you believe most of us are not very good planners when it comes to our daily routines? We go to work. Check messages and emails...start calling and accidentally remember what we are supposed to be doing or where we were supposed to be 10 minutes ago. Day planners are good, but most of us forget to use them. Secretaries are better but they can forget to. One great way to remind yourself about appointments is to email reminders to yourself.  Most of us check email every hour or so anyway.  Try it ! Works nicely.

Have a great day!

I start every day with a Day Planner and a ToDo List.  Other than time sensitive appointments, business happens and my plan goes out the window and I just have to prioritize as the day goes by.

I use an appointment calendar and a To Do List, too.  Most days, the To Do List does not get completed.  I need to learn how to prioritize.

Good post. I do find that poor time management is the root to most folks failing in our industry. The most successful folks always plan their day vs their day planning them.

Happy Selling!

I spend all day reading blogs, and hope somebody calls. Just kidding. But sometimes this blogging can suck up a lot of time.

Ha, ha! I like Larry's comment! I use a day planner that I have with me at all times and a to-do list. Some days not all gets done but that is also why I prioritize it. If I get all of my A's and a few of my B & C priorities done I feel like I have won the day.

Trey and Brent, That IS exactly what I have been doing for years.  I always read email and can delete items on the list and add new ones without having to type the complete list over since I never finish everything on my 'to do' list...then I email it back to myself.....  Technology rules.
