Getting Organized

Reginaleeds Once in a while, Sabrina and I have our “date night”
at the nearest bookstore.  We treat it like a chance to walk around and
discover something new, then we sit down at the coffee shop and talk
about what we found.  This time, an interesting title caught my eye so
I began reading a few chapters — One Year To An Organized Work Life by
Regina Leeds.

As our business grows, I’ve been struggling to stay
as organized as I want.  I’ve come to believe that personal and
business organization is a key component to succeeding at the highest
levels.  The reason I liked this book so much is that it takes a
step-by-step weekly approach so that I can systematize things into
habits.  It is kind of like giving out assignments instead of saying go
do it this way.

So, this weekend I began a new journey that is
expected to last ONE full year as I have committed to the process of One
Year To An Organized Work Life.  As I enter this “get organized”
journey, my expectation is how this is more of a “habits and routines”
issue for me than some kind of cleanliness problem.  I know where
everything is and I can put my fingers on anything I need very quickly,
but, I need a better system for handling the massive amount of email,
statics, clients, contracts, disclosures, reports, etc that it takes to
run a thriving real estate enterprise. 

I have great expectations for
this book and it’s results! And I will keep you posted.

  1. Hi Mark,
    I’m so honored you like my book!
    Please e-mail me any questions as you move along through the chapters and I’ll be happy to help. In fact, if you wish, you can share our communications on your blog.
    Start at the beginning. This April can be your January…and do read the Introduction. The first three months lay the foundation. After that you can read the material as you need it.
    Blessings on your journey!

    Hi Regina,
    Wow, a note from the author — how inspiring! I’m delighted you found me and I’m sure I will need to exchange thoughts with you from time to time. Is it too much to ask for me to think of you as my organization and time management Mentor?
    Thanks for your support!
