It’s time to assess your business (or your business plan, if you have one). Do you have a first-quarter assessment? In this blog, I’m providing you one, so you can measure your results and compare those to your goals.
What to Measure
Of course, you’ll want to measure the goals you set at the beginning of the year. Use this form to do that.
Your Time Management
Agents say time management is their biggest challenge. And, it all comes down to prioritizing your activities. Here’s the question: Are you spending more of your time in
Business-producing activities (lead generation, interviewing/qualifying, showing, selling, listing, listing sells)
Business-supporting activities (everything else)
In my business start-up plan for new agents, Up and Running in 30 Days, I break all real estate activities into the 2 categories above to create a business start-up plan for success. Why? To give new agents a precise, correct model for a successful business.
Creatures of Habit
We are creatures of habit. Without a different model, we tend to do whatever group of activities which appeal to us because they’re easy and don’t take us out of our comfort zone. Unfortunately, then, we create a business activity plan that leads us to failure, not success.
How to Analyze your Time Management
How do you know which ‘business plan’ you’re following? (because you’re following one, whether you’ve written it down or not!)? Simply look at your schedule for the last 2-3 weeks. Put your activities into the two columns above. How many business-producing activities did you do? Is your activity schedule highly ‘tilted’ toward business supporting activities? Why? What do you want to change?
