BReaking BAd Real Estate Habits
A day in the life of a Real Estate agent is different for each of us. Many of you reading this blog probably have your stuff together and are top-producing, highly-effective agents. However, if most of us are honest with ourselves, we still have a ton of bad habits that contribute to making our jobs stressful sometimes. We get into Real Estate for many reasons, with one being a flexible schedule—we want to be able to participate in things that we could not as easily do with a 9-to-5 job. Unfortunately, sometimes that “flexibility” of not having a set schedule can make us feel like we are “on call” or “on the clock” 24/7 instead. Here are a few ways to break those bad habits.
1. Be in the moment
It’s easy to develop bad habits when it comes to time management. We are not designed to multi-task, which often causes us to waste time or not perform at our full potential. Because of this, we end up with many incomplete projects. If we schedule our time in blocks on our calendar and are intentional about it, we can accomplish much more. Similarly, it’s important to schedule family and personal time the same you would with an appointment. Quality of life should be the number one reason why we make this industry our career.
