In todays world of endless notifications, emails, texts, phone calls, and interruptions, it’s easy for important tasks to fall through the cracks, and for your rhythm to be drowned out by the background noise. You can become super busy, and yet produce very little.
In property management we get calls, texts and emails, upon calls, texts and interruptions. Tasks often become overlapped, and it’s easy to forget what you were doing in the first place. In todays world, this wont cut it if you want to make a real difference.
I survive by setting 3 main priorities, which stay the same every day. They relate to my KPI’s. This can be rent arrears, letting, and new business. This sets the melody for each day. I also have a note book on my desk, and I use my calendar to record each beat of the moment. Together, these create my working rhythm. It helps me take note of the real work, and identify the time wasting tasks which always seem urgent, but of little importance. Once you find your working rhythm, then you can tango with passion, and grab that bull by the horns!!
