My best tip - put EVERYTHING on the calendar - personal and business. If you don't you will wind up having no personal time and will work 'round the clock!  When I say I 'live by my calendar,' I do!

I'm with you on Mondays, Andrew! Mondays are my phone days and unless someone else schedules something that is beyond my control (buyers or sellers' Closings), I try to leave it open for phone time and maybe a lunch with a client.

  • Don't overbook your day.
  • Grab the file before taking/returning that call if you know that's what it's about.
  • Do nothing requiring urgency for anyone not already committed to you.
  • You don't have to prove yourself - THEY do.
  • With those who matter, overdo as if it were day one.
  • Seek to astound, but don't let yourself be impressed.

I dont like to schedule any early Monday morning appointments for the same reason. My week though is already filling up. My best tip is to not just schedule ahead, i like the night before, but leave space in between to fill in what pops up, and something always pops up
