The Hour-By-Hour Plan for Your Perfect Business Day
Is this possible? Oh yes it is! It is time blocking and self discipline. No one said that taking control of your routine will be easy. According to Forbes this will take longer than 21 days. There are three phases that need to happen to form these habits:
1. The Honeymoon: This phase of habit formation is characterized by the feeling of “this is easy.”
2. The Fight Thru: Inspiration fades and reality sets in.
3. Second Nature: Entering second nature is often described by feelings of “getting in the groove.”
For more details on the three phases visit Forbes.
Does it sound just a little bit to overwhelming? Below is a daily schedule that works that you can try! Good Luck!!
5:00 AM – 6:00 AM: Wake-up + Gym + Nutrition
Use this time to fuel your body and energize yourself for the busy day ahead!
6:00 AM – 8:00 AM: Morning Routine + Get Ready
Set yourself up to be in a peak mental state – this is crucial to reaching your goals. If you don’t have a morning routine, I recommend reading The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod. My morning recommendations: prayer, meditation, visualization, audiobooks, gratitude, journaling, affirmations, etc.
8:00 AM – 9:00 AM: Prep + Review
Connect with your assistant (or sit down with your calendar) and go over your objectives and outcomes for the day.
9:00 AM – 10:30 AM: Appointment Setting
No distractions, just 90 minutes straight of prospecting and appointment setting (DO NOT SKIP THIS!). Click here to learn how to overcome your fear of the phone.
10:30 AM – 11:00 AM: Break
Take a brisk walk to mentally recharge before your next tasks.
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM: Lunch + Prep
Prepare your hot sheets and plan for your afternoon appointments.
12:00 PM – 4:30 PM: Appointments + Listing Presentations
Use this 3.5 hour block to schedule in three 90-minute appointments or listing presentations. If you’re a new agent and don’t have 3 daily appointments or presentations booked, use this time for additional prospecting and appointment setting time.
Work your face off so that you can go home at a decent hour and be present with your loved ones!
4:30 PM – 5:00 PM: Daily Wrap-Up
Close up the day and identify what you accomplished and what your goals are for tomorrow.
5:00 PM – 7:00 PM: Home + Dinner + Family Time
Work/Life balance is so important. If you want it to happen … you’ve got to schedule it in, just like everything else in your day! Stay present and enjoy a good meal with the ones you love.
7:00 PM – 9:00 PM: Personal Time
Use the final hours of your day to hang out with your significant other, read an enjoyable book, or focus on a favorite hobby.
9:00 PM – 5:00 AM: Sleep
Rest and recharge for an action-packed day tomorrow.
