If you are prone to procrastinate, keeping an organized list helps you to develop much more clarity. Too many people are scattered in all directions. They are late for meetings; they’re late for the airport. They forget appointments. They can’t find their cell phone with all their contacts, or they experience all sorts of other things because of their disorganization. Being organized is a skill and an important one if you want to be super successful.
Getting organized means keeping lists! Not on a scrap of paper but with a good method, whether that means in a Day-Timer, online or in your smartphone. Successful people are creatures of habit and that includes keeping track of everything.
To become successful with National Agents Alliance, you must understand success principles and live the laws of success. This means developing habits, routines, skills and a mindset that will allow you to do all the little things the winners do every day. If you don’t develop a system, and write things down, it’s easy to become a procrastinator.
Step six in Andy Albright’s 8 Steps to Success is “Be Teachable.” At NAA, the top producers do a great job of teaching new agents, and these big producers are all good at being super organized. The new agent has to be willing to listen (Step 3 in the 8 Steps) and implement the strategies that have proven successful, and profitable.
Most of our top agents plan their day the night before, and those with assistants will even leave messages for them in the evening so they both start off each day with a blueprint to follow. With things written down, and prioritized, important tasks never get delayed or forgotten. Most often, National Agents Alliance’s leaders list and tackle the most difficult tasks first. Following a prioritized list makes sense, it allows you to feel like your day is productive, and if something should not get completed it won’t be the most important task of the day.
So, to make the most of your National Agents Alliance business: Listen, learn and write it down!
