John had a tough time balancing his work and personal life. He wanted to be successful and make sure that he was able to make time for his family and friends, but he was overwhelmed by the amount of work he had to do. He decided to use a S.M.A.R.T. week to help him manage his time and be successful in both his professional and personal life. John knew that the first step to a successful S.M.A.R.T. week was to block out his pre-scheduled appointments, personal time, prospecting time, call back time, and leave room for flex time. He also used a color-coded system to help him differentiate between income producing, license required activities (green), non-revenue producing admin work (yellow), and personal time (pink). Finally, he wrote out a list of the top five priorities he wanted to accomplish each day. He made it a habit to work on one of those five items until it was complete. John was able to use his S.M.A.R.T. Week to help him manage his time, be successful professionally and personally, and still have time for his family and friends.
