1. Get A Standing Desk
Sitting down all day can not only be bad for your posture and your beach body but makes it too easy to lose momentum. Real estate investing pros will find that getting a standing desk will not only mean less time needed out of the office on the treadmill but also makes you feel more energized and empowered throughout the day which will also shine through over the phone and help you close more deals.
2. Work Out
Few people have accomplished as much as Richard Branson. From airlines to mobile phones to space tourism and gyms he has managed to squeeze a lot out of his time. What can real estate investing pros learn from him to increase productivity? Branson says working out gives him an extra 4 plus productive work hours per day.
3. Eat Right
Real estate investing business owners often find themselves overdoing the lavish business lunches or grabbing junk food to keep fueled. Just make sure you avoid those items that will cause your sugar levels to crash later leaving you sapped of focus. Think 4 Hour Energy and almonds or cucumbers as snacks instead.
4. Take Regular Breaks
Sometimes giving your brain and eyes a brief break from the screen or even grabbing a power nap will help you get back and plough through the tasks ahead faster.
5. Hire Somebody
As the owner of a real estate investing company you absolutely need one assistant if not two. You should be constantly delegating everything you can so get a VA and a project manager and if it pays, a VA for your manager too.
6. Fire Somebody
Frustrated? Maybe you should just fire somebody, get it out of your system and get back to work. It will keep everyone else on their toes. Or maybe there is someone who really deserves it. Who is slowing down your operation or is taking up too much of your time?
7. Automate Updates
Kill the meetings already please! Automate all areas of your real estate investing business, especially updates and progress reports from your team members. Get your hands on a good cloud based project management program so that you have one dashboard to check out for real time updates, wherever you are.
