No Guilt Required
By America’s Six Figure Real Estate Coach Roberta Ross
I recently saw a Q&A session in a real estate forum where an agent posed the question, “Do you plan your days off or make them spontaneous?” What struck me was how many agents answered back that they rarely, if ever, take a day off. Really? As a mom, wife, entrepreneur, business owner, and real estate coach, I totally understand that our lives and days can feel a little like a 24/7 run on the hamster wheel. I also understand and advocate that we cannot possibly bring our best selves our clients, businesses and families if we don’t take some down time. Studies support that, ironically, all work and no play has a detrimental effect on productivity. In fact, I tell my coaching members that it’s just as vital a component to our success as prospecting, presenting, and closing. Why? It makes us more effective, keeps burn-out at bay, helps create a healthy life balance, and makes this journey a whole lot more interesting!
Need a nudge? Here are four ways to take back your down time without feeling guilty:
Being the best in your field doesn’t have to mean working non-stop every day. It’s not a badge of honor to say you never take a day off, it’s a sign that your life is out of balance, and no one can stay out of balance indefinitely. It always, always takes a toll. As we head into the summer months, be sure to take a good look at these four ways to re-center, replenish, and renew your time for yourself. It’s not a should-do if you want to rise to the top and stay there, it’s a must-do.
Good luck, and if you need help getting and staying on the path, let me know! That’s what coaches are for!
