Clients love real estate professionals who follow through with their commitments. It is important to be efficient to be able to do your promises quickly and in a timely manner.
1. Do the most important tasks first
Most people do the easy tasks first, tasks that they enjoy doing. This is not efficient. Do the most important tasks first, whether it is hard or easy. You can delay the unimportant tasks later.
2. Have a collection box
A collection box is a physical box where you place all your tasks into, all in one place. Remove all your tasks from your mind, place them in the collection box, and have a clear and focused mind. The key is to check your collection box every single day.
3. Do checklists
Always forgetting to buy tissue in the grocery or bring towel to the gym? Checklists can be your best friend. It will make sure that you will never forget anything. It will free up your mind from overthinking and help your mind focus.
4. Use calendar
You cannot have a clear and focused mind if you constantly think about your visit to the dentist two months from now. You have to place the tasks and events that you will do in a future date. Remove it from your mind now and focus on the tasks at hand right now.
5. Bulk minor tasks
Going to the grocery or doing laundry once a week is very inefficient. Find a way to collect these minor tasks and do them only once a month. This will give you more time to do the more important tasks.
6. File finished tasks
You don’t want to see your finished tasks all the time as it will only waste your brain power. File them in a final folder and make sure it is easy to retrieve.
