RISMedia's REAL ESTATE June 2019 45 To get on track, you'll need to man- age your energy, stay focused and get organized to avoid the pitfalls of overwhelm and burnout. Implement - ing a system to care for your busi- ness and yourself, while serving your clients and closing more deals, is a win-win. Here are a couple of quick strategies you can implement to help make this your best year ever. OPTIMIZE YOUR ENERGY As a business owner, there's no greater asset to your business than you and your energy. You need to be mentally clear and physically vi - tal. This starts with input. What are you putting into your mind and body daily? Are you reaching for that donut in a moment of stress, or watching too much late-night TV to avoid think - ing about the day? Begin by putting some positive or inspirational books or podcasts into your daily routine. This will help you stay mentally and emotionally fit to face the challenges that are sure to come your way. And, of course, it's always helpful to exer - cise regularly and eat healthy food to care for your body. This will help you fight off sickness and generally have more energy throughout the day. FIND YOUR FOCUS When we get caught up in our day-to- day demands, from putting out fires to putting on dinner, it can be easy to forget why we're doing it all. The mid- year mark is the perfect time to con - duct a check-in. Writing goals and reviewing them regularly is the best way to stay focused on the bigger picture. It's the "why" behind our ef - forts. If you haven't written goals in a while, begin by envisioning your ideal business and life, then write down the goals you'd need to achieve in order to make your vision a reality. Each time you're feeling frustrated by the little things, review your goals. This practice will not only give you perspective in the moment, it'll also keep you motivated and focused as you achieve your best year ever. GET ORGANIZED This one is crucial to productivity. Start by requalifying your list of re - lationships, or database, so that you're focusing your time and energy on people you enjoy working with and who send you referrals. Once you've prioritized your people, you can pri - oritize your time. This means getting disciplined with your schedule. Block out time for all your non-negotiable activities and appointments first. Make sure to put lead generation as a top importance every working day. Once you have your most cru - cial actions accounted for, you can then sprinkle in the rest of your obli - gations around those "big rocks" in your weekly schedule. This type of priority-based scheduling will ensure that you never lose focus of what activities are key for you to achieve your best year ever. When you diligently follow these tips, they can have an incredibly powerful effect on your performance and income. For some accountabil - ity, consider a business coach to rein you in, so you won't constantly catch yourself wondering where the time went.
