Feeling Overwhelmed

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 New Millenium MD RE License 579412

For most of the week last week I felt very overwhelmed with the amount of things I thought I needed to accomplish to the point where I was almost crippled to non-performance by what I felt was too much to do.  How many of you have felt that way?  Many, I bet. 

I know I need to create lists of things that need to be done, then prioritize them in the order of importance or what I see as important and start chizzling away at them one at a time but a lot of the time I forget to make the list and eventually I am crippled to the point of non-performance. 

I feel like Santa Clause tonight.  I made my list and I checked it twice and forgot all about who was naughty or nice.  I accomplished what I set out to accomplish and created another list and I'm chugging along and the feeling of being overwhelmed has ebbed and I feel like a great weight has been lifted off my shoulders.  

I even wrote a contract today and that wasn't on my to do list.  However, closing 12 transactions this year was.  I took over the management of an office and my goal was to close a deal a month just to stay active in the market but not appear to be taking business from my agents.  So, I just wrote my contract for July and I'm on my way to another list.

I have realized that the good old fashioned to-do-list is the best way for me to keep on track.  I bought a small spiral notebook and I label the top of each page with the date.  I list my to-do's then if I don't get to them I move them to the next page.  I found that I hated having to move things to the next day so I worked at little harder to get all my tasks done for the day.  I also can look back and see what day I did a certain task.  Seems to work for me!

Hope you finish the year much better than you expected!

Sometimes carrying things around in our head can cause us to not be as efficient.  A written to do list whether electronic or paper is an excellent idea.  Good job.

Yuo already know to take care of the 'big rocks' first. What works best for me is to get away from all distractions -- no computer, no phone, no TV or radio -- just find a quiet area, take out a notepad and spend about 15 minutes getting everything down. Then keep that list in front of you to keep you on track througout the day. Good luck!

The list is great...it works for me too! but don't forget to cross things off as you do them. It's a great feeling of accomplishment. And when they're all crossed of....yhea!
