5 Habits of productive agent

With so many distractions, it's a wonder real estate agents are
productive at all. Working to become a highly productive real estate
agent is an ongoing process. Creating habits that produce
consistent results allows you to achieve your maximum potential.
Time management has always been a real challenge. Between
phone calls, a barrage of emails, listing presentations, prospecting
calls and buyers appointments, how do you stay productive?
Keep yourself focused, alert and on track with these 5 Habits of
Highly Productive Real Estate Agent's
Top Productivity Habits
1. Focus on Your Most Important Tasks
The first part of every real estate agent's day should be spent
focused on the most important tasks. Why bother spending hours
on time-consuming/low-payoff tasks when you could focus on tasks
that actually generate income and produce results?
Schedule time on your calendar and then list out everything you
will work on. Once you've done that, number each item and work
through your list. Complete what you can during your scheduled
time without any interruptions or distractions. Rinse and repeat the
next day.
2. Remove Distractions
Between the phone, email, Internet, employees and all other
"interruptions," our day can quickly get away from us if we allow it.
Turn it all off and stay focused on your task at hand.
Do not allow for a quick vacation on Facebook or a stroll down
memory lane with an old friend. Cut yourself off from all
distractions, work down your list and take a break once complete.
3. Use Positive Affirmations
Positive affirmations really do work! They can take a negative
attitude and turn it around just be repeating a few constructive,
upbeat words.
Not familiar with how to use positive affirmations? Here is a tip: All
affirmations should be repeated in the present tense. For example,
"I am creating a clear path towards my destiny." See what I mean?
You are speaking as if it is happening right now, not in the past
and not in the future. Pick a time of day that works best for you
and then read them out loud each day.
4. Take a Cat Nap
Grabbing a few zzz's might seem like an odd productivity tip, but
studies have shown that feeling refreshed after a nap can
significantly improve concentration and performance.
I wouldn't suggest napping any longer than 30 minutes though or
you will go from refreshed to groggy.
5. Set Daily Goals
A day without goals is like setting out on a road trip without a map.
Sure you'll end up somewhere, but I'm doubtful it's where you
truly wanted to be.
Wake up each morning with your goals outlined. These should be
incorporated into your daily tasks. Setting your sites on a goal each
day offers clarity and promotes a more sustained drive.
Keep in mind that not every habit may be right for you. The most
important part about creating habits is creating habits that stick.
They will only stick if there's 'buy-in' from you.
Bonus! 6. Break out of the Norm
Don't be afraid to branch out and try something that makes you a
little uncomfortable. Stepping outside of your comfort zone can be
an amazing place that offers growth potential you never believed
possible.
