This blog post is inspired by the challenge Donna Foerster's November AR Contest: A Day/Week in Your Business Life .
My days start at very odd hours in the morning as I have been working with people in many far-flung areas. To date I have worked with people in South Korea, Australia, Oman, Afghanistan and Germany and I might be forgetting one or two countries. As far as times zones this can be quite difficult.
On an average day sees me getting up at around 4 AM. I put on my workout outfit and head for the computer to check on my overseas clients. Next I try to find the coffee pot and head for the door and find my gym which is Anytime Fitness. I am usually there by myself or by one other gentleman who is not very friendly and always keeps me on task because he won’t talk to me.
As I return home I try not to wake my wife because it is still before or around 5:15 in the morning.
I grab another cup of coffee and some breakfast and begin writing my hand written thank you cards and then work on my to do list until it gets light.
At around 8 o'clock in the morning my day jumps into overdrive...
Phone calls; outgoing calls in the morning but other calls throughout the day. I seem to always be on the phone.
Appointments; always set up as early as possible
Meetings; as required or scheduled
Showings; as required or scheduled
Listing input and prospecting; Depending on how busy I am I try to do this after I've taking care of my other to do's.
By now it is usually 3 to 4:oo and time for some family time or a I find time to stop by and see my local grandkids who brighten even the the darkest cloudy day.
When I appear to have worked too many days in a row my wife, scheduals some down time for me because she keeps tabs on me through my calendar and my GPS on my phone. I have nothing to hide and her knowing where I am has come in handy several times when I am out and about.
As for ActiveRain; I try to drop by at different times during the day however it's usually more convenient for me in the early evening to spend an hour or so...
