How many times a day do you say this? You also listen to a lot of people tell you how busy they are. It’s become the default response when you ask anyone how they’re doing: “Busy!” “Busy busy.” “SO busy.”
Is this how we want to live? Or have we been programmed to live this way?
One of the most repeated complaints I hear is, “I don’t have enough time!” Another one is, “I am too busy.” As a manager, business owner, or dedicated professional I am sure you are busy. You are busy because you have designed a plan for your business and a plan for your life. You know how to achieve maximum results.
My question for you, is your team as busy as you are?
I will use the example of a Designated Broker who said to me, “I don’t have time for coaching, I am too busy!” I have met many DB’s who complain about burning the candle at both ends. I always follow up that response with a question: Is your team as busy as you are? Does your team understand the key components in having a prosperous career? Do they understand that they are in the lead generating business? Independent real estate contractors should consider their independent contractor relationship as “Co-owner.” They should work just as hard as you are. They should complete a business plan every year, keeping track of how many sales are needed to create the NET income desired. As a DB, implementing and establishing systems will enhance your ability to communicate with your team and your clients. Having a clear vision of how much money is needed will give everyone the appropriate work ethic.
The key to avoiding burnout is planning and having balance between personal and professional life.
Gaining clarity on the “Busy Trap” can make your business more profitable and efficient. This not only generates income, but allows for the quality of life we all strive for. Working with a business coach can help. Which of these services would be best for your life right now?
