Time management is a frequent topic discussed among real estate professionals. Between meetings, lead generation appointments and the myriad of daily duties, finding focus can be challenging.
The Pareto Principle, also known as the ’80:20 Rule’ states that an unfocused and poorly managed day will require 80% effort, but only generate 20% of the desired results. Many real estate professionals juggling multiple tasks without a formal way to manage those duties know how true this outcome can be.
The good news is that this percentage flips when you take control of your day. By simply managing your endeavors as opposed to your day managing you, 80% of the desired results can be generated using only 20% effort. Imagine earning back that time throughout your work week!
