Welcome to The Real Estate Deep Dive Podcast with Kara Macdonald. Today Kara welcomes our special guest Karen Cooper founder of the Platinum Group Real Estate Team in Northern Virginia and she’s here with us today to teach us some new time management tricks.
With time management, what works for you is always going to be an evolving thing depending on the season of your life. Kara and Karen discuss how to build a schedule that fits your life right now.
If you feel like you have too many interruptions keeping you from being productive in your work, that can be very draining. Let’s talk about how to set limitations to protect your time. Often what keeps us from having these boundary conversations is the fear that our value comes from our being constantly available. Here’s the thing: It doesn’t.
One of the great tricks that Karen discusses applies really well to work-life balance. Here it is: call every time commitment that you have an appointment, whether it’s a business meeting or a family event. Not only is this practice more professional, but it’ll help you guard your family time.
Other great tips you’ll hear about in our conversation today include inbox management, mental resilience in the face of overwhelming pings, dings and alerts and handy hacks for laundry, cooking and cleaning.
Lastly, remember that saying “yes” to one thing means saying “no” to something else. Thanks so much for tuning in!
