A B C’S of Time Management
A. Assess Priorities
While not every task is a priority, many of us write our to-do lists as if every
task is equally important. Every morning, mark each task on your list with an
A, B or C to identify the priority level. Complete all As first before moving on
to the Bs to ensure you’re not diverting time and energy away from the
activities that drive your business.
B. Block Your Time
Schedule yourself 60 to 90 minutes to focus only on you’re A-list priorities.
During this time, don’t do anything outside of what you planned. It’s easy to
get pulled away from your priorities to deal with emergencies as they arise.
C. Create Consistency
Consistency is the mother of habit. And habit— specifically good habits—are
vital to success. When you consistently focus on your priorities and block your
time every day, you’ll create a habit of success, helping you get more done

to focus on priorities that drive your business.
E. Explain Expectations

agents and clients can gauge their expectations. Keep them in the loop and
make them aware of your schedule to help them set realistic expectations.
