Make Realistic Plans


Are you living in a dream world ?

It's been said that the more unrealistic the plans you have on the table appear to be, the more problems you can create for yourself.

As an example, you might be trying to live up to the expectations of keeping a ridiculous schedule. That ridiculous schedule might impact the schedules of the others you work with which, as a collateral negative influence, can waste the resources of everyone involved.

You're colleagues are going to wonder what's slowing you down and maybe even believe that your world has gone bonkers.

You need to put a precise plan together for your day's events and review carefully the negative aspects of that plan that could impact the successful performance of your responsibilities. This is the time to make the changes necessary to insure a smooth transition throughout the day.

Make sure you carefully look at the way your plans affect the plans of the others around you. This is a good habit to get in when you work with a team. Kind of like synchronized swimming.

If you suspect conflicts talk them out with the others in your group or brokerage and take the necessary steps to realign your schedule.

Then you might be able to fit the Saturday night mambo lessons into your plans, on your own time.

How do you put your calendar together ?

How well said. Everything has to have a plan. Whether conceived for success, or ignored for failure.

Great post!

Very well written/said and think I need to adhere to all this. My calendar is an earth quake ready to happen, especially without the doctor's appointment that I need to be at next Wed. Very good blog.

Many thanks, Tom. Keeping pace is tough for all of us in this topsy-turvy environment. My objective is to repair a few alarm clocks if they need to be, and maybe even lower some blood pressure for my pals here in Active Rain. That's one of my goals. I'm glad to hear from you and certainly hope that your having a really nice week.

David. Well said. However, family time should be in there also. Thanks for sharing. Royal..

Hi Bob. Thank you for the nice comment. I hope some of this armchair advice can help, and make better Mambo dancers out of us :-) Hope your having a great week.

Posted by David Saks ((retired)) about 12 years ago

Your absolutely right, Royal.  The in-laws and the out-laws :-) Gosh, I want to go bowling so bad, too. Great to hear from you. Hope this week has been a great one for you.

David - I focus on relationship building, continuing to learn my market, taking care of my current clients and building my online presence.  I usually break it down from there every day or every week (some items are on my weekly to do list).
