Is it just us, or did the entire month of February feel like it lasted a total of one, single hour?
The first quarter of 2019 has been a whirlwind, and its upcoming conclusion means it’s time to check in on your progress towards the goals and real estate resolutions you set for yourself at the start of the new year.
Are you where you need to be to bring your goals to fruition this year? If not, what in your workflow needs to be adjusted now to get you there in December?
Here’s a refresher on best practices for positioning yourself to crush your goals as you head into Q2:
“The question I ask myself like almost every day is, ‘am I doing the most important thing I could be doing?’… Unless I feel like I’m working on the most important problem that I can help with, then I’m not going to feel good about how I’m spending my time.” – Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook
It’s easy to get so caught up in your busy day-to-day life of being a real estate agent that you forget to prioritize the tasks that will actually enable you to reach your goals. It’s important to be mindful about what activities you put at the very top of your to-do list, and to acknowledge which tasks can be left until later on if needed.
Use your tools.
“Efficiency is doing things right; effectiveness is doing the right things.” – Peter Drucker
Take the edge off of your bustling schedule by utilizing tools to atomize the small, tedious tasks that are taking up precious time that could be better allocated elsewhere. Any technology tool that allow you to automate aspects of your workflow such as marketing efforts, client communication, or ad creation will help free up more time for you to focus on the activities that require more time and effort. Efficiency is the key to boosting your productivity and ultimately – your profitability.
Stay ahead of the game.
“For me life is continually being hungry. The meaning of life is not to simply exist, to survive, but to move ahead, go up, to achieve, to conquer.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger
Rushed work is often messy work, so instead of waiting until the last minute to complete an important task, utilize any free time you have now to knock it out ahead of schedule. The extra time will allow you to be thoughtful and ensure that you’re producing the quality of work needed to bring your resolutions to life and move your real estate business forward.
“Be brave enough to live life creatively. The creative place where no one else has ever been.” – Alan Alda

Instead, take time to think outside the box and brainstorm unconventional ways to go about reaching your goals.
