You will find yourself dealing with urgent matters when you have not worked on them when they were ‘not’ urgent. This sounds like the simplest of statements one can make yet there are many business professionals who function in crisis mode all of the time; they fail to appreciate that they are accumulating Stress on themselves, their colleagues, and their families; but worse they are developing the nasty habit of always reacting, rather than creating. Take Real Estate; Agents will be handed their fair share of crises to handle from every corner of the biz; the Sellers, Buyers, Loan Officers, Inspectors, Appraisers, Lawyers, other Brokers, etc… Yet it is still possible to function from a creative side if you allow yourself time for reflection on a daily basis; take 20 minutes away from your phone and emails and ground your thoughts about your upcoming daily events; wake up early and prepare for your day; if you trust yourself you can even predict what some of the breakdowns will befall you that day and get ready for them. It is this time for reflection that is the most misused, abused, or ignored – what a shame!
