Can you believe that the year 2022 is barely a few weeks away? Just a few more days to go, and then a brand new chance to hit the reset button and start over once again! With the kind of year that all real estate agents must have had, I am sure none of us can wait to hit this magic button with the hope of significantly doing better this time.
While this upcoming new phase of our lives is hitting all of us hard, let us face it. The time is not getting any slower, and the urge to be more efficient in both our professional and personal lives is not going away either.
The real estate industry has gone through ample changes and challenges in the year 2021. Experts are predicting that the year 2022 is going to be as busy or even busier than this year. Now seems like the best time for you to analyze and decide what goals will work best for you in 2022. We have handpicked a set of new year's resolutions for you to pick and choose from.
Even though most of us usually set goals to improve the quality of our personal lives, setting expectations in our professional lives is equally important. While having new years resolutions may seem a little cliche, you will be shocked to discover what setting goals can do to your career. As a real estate agent, it becomes even more important for you to reflect on the kind of year that you have had, patting yourself on the back for the highlights and aiming to improve yourself for the blunders.
Every real estate agent has a unique style of working, and we think these resolutions might just help you perform better than you already have!
1. Set your Goals Right
If you do not have a set of goals and a rough plan in mind for the coming year, all the other new year resolutions will not be as effective. As a real estate agent, focus on visualizing the kind of year that you want to have and get your priorities in place. It only takes a second to go off track once the new year starts. If you know your focus points, you can give them ample time and achieve it in the shortest time possible.
2. Reflect on your Sphere of Influence
If you have not updated your leads for a while now, try and list this down as the first task for 2022. If you get done with this right in the beginning, you will not only save a lot of time but will also be done with the huge task of finding any new leads that may be of use.
3. Get into a Morning Routine
While this may sound petty and like no work at all, do you remember how you take those extra 30 minutes in the morning to catch up on a little extra sleep? Yes, that is what we are talking about! Make it a point to get out of bed a few minutes before you start your day, then get fresh, and then get to work! If you have not done this already, make it a point to read real estate news first thing in the morning to headstart your day with all current updates.
4. Utilize the Access to Podcasts
You will be surprised to know the number of podcasts that are entirely focused on helping out real estate agents. Even if you have been in the industry for a long time now, there is always room for knowledge! The best part about podcasts is that they do not require you to travel, are not too long, and most of them are completely free of cost! Real Estate Rockstars, Cashflow Diary, Real Estate Investing Mastery, Massive Agents, and The Remote Real Estate Investor are some top podcasts of 2021.
5. Try Out Now Technologies
Now that you have decided to reflect on what worked last year and what did not, also focus on the tools and technologies that you utilized and the ones you did not try out in 2021. Especially for real estate agents, there are ample tools that can be put to use to increase your daily working efficiency. Some of these tools include Trello, Sierra Interactive, PadStyler, Slack, DocuSign, and Structurally. These tools can streamline your working process and help you entirely focus your energy on finding leads and closing deals.
6. Make Time for Self Care
This new year resolution is by far one of the most important, but also the most neglected one. If you are happy with your performance in 2021 (and we are sure you will be!), take out some time to reward yourself and celebrate even the little milestones. Most real estate agents work too hard and take no time out for themselves. Make this year about creating a work/life balance and taking care of your well-being.
From increasing your productivity to getting your daily routine in place, new year resolutions mean you can go beyond your usual boundaries and set any goals you think will help you in your business. The end of the year is when you have some time off from your busy routine, making it even more important to reflect and set goals.
Tune your mind towards giving your real estate business a fresh start, and be ready to maximize your success in 2022!
