I get up early and I'm at my computer by 6:30 am and from 6:30 am till 8:30 I take no phone calls and respond to no emails. It's my "quiet time" to get organized for my day and figure out how to address what I need to address.

I've also learned to have "not to do" list in addition to my "to list.

When it came to my videos I used to beat myself up. Now I keep a mindset that "It is better to be DONE rather than nothing while still being mindful of my content"

This has helped me stay on track with releasing 3 videos a very week.

That is a GREAT question Alan Blake and two come to mind right away. The first habit I developed in elementary school. I had an early morning paper route and it was imparative I get out of bed at 5 and get to work by 6. It's something I continue to do today in my semi-retirement. 

My 2nd, and maybe tied to the origins of the first, I read the newspaper cover to cover every day so that I know what is going on in my community. Yes I know eyes are rolling but no matter what or how bad your opinion is of the paper it is still a GREAT sourse of what IS happening in YOUR community.

details, paying attention to details.  GA is an attorney state and all the local closing attorneys love to see my office because they know I pay attention to details.  I recently got a call from one who said "do you know the where abouts of the title to manufactured home" It wasn't my listing, but my buyers and of course I knew.... the listing agent didn't, but I had asked the sellers when showing the property and they had it in their safe, pulled it out and I had snapped a .PDF with my phone and while had it to send to the attorney.
