Time Management: 5 Things On My Calendar For 2019

Time is a tricky beast. It will rule you and slip through your fingers if you let it. Other people and their agendas will control your time, your return on it and use of it, if you let them.

Even with the best intentions and clearly written goals, getting what you really want most out of your time can be elusive. I’ve found the best way to beat that is to block out time in advance. Put things on your calendar before the beginning of the year. Refuse to compromise. Otherwise something else will creep up and steal that time and goal from you.

If you’ve been staying up to date on the blog you’ll have seen a couple of other recent posts in which I reveal my unique approach to new year’s resolutions and how I start dominating the new year from at least the last quarter of the previous year. I like to be way ahead of the game. If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out those posts now.

This blog will give you some direct, actionable insights you can apply to your own calendar right now to get the most out of 2019.

I’ll be attending a variety of real estate events around the country this year, and conducting many meetings. These, though, are the five most important things on my calendar that I’ve already mapped out for 2019.

1. Events for Growth

Personal growth and constant self-improvement are extremely important to me. They are essential. Since I’m usually speaking or on panels at most of the events I go to, attending events to learn, listen and share on a deeper level are where I really get the most value for myself. The two that I’m most excited about this year are the Tony Robbins Business Mastery in Europe, and what I consider the most elite real estate mastermind in which I’ll be the only professional from New Jersey attending.

2. Lunch Dates with My Mom

This is something I’ve really enjoyed doing monthly or biweekly, but plan to do more often in 2019. It’s a great opportunity to spend quality time together. Just the two of us. I get her to share more of her stories and invest time in getting to know her better and learn from her. With age and experience comes a lot of wisdom. We often under-appreciate that. Life is also so short. I see a lot of people who regret not spending more time with people they cared about. And I don’t know anyone who has regretted spending quality time like this with those most important to them.

3. Spring Vacation with the Kids

We have a lot of responsibilities as parents. Too often, it’s too easy to just focus on the providing and training part of parenting. Sometimes they just need us to be there and have fun too. It’s what it most important to them. Last year we went to Aruba, which was awesome. No laptop, no phone. This year we’re heading to California and Disney.

4. Time for Self-Reflection

Last year I was taking five hours every other week to reflect, and spend on myself. That really worked. So, I’m doubling down in 2019 and blocked out five hours every week! I’ll use that time to reflect and think, pamper myself, unplug, or hit the Korean spa house to relax in 200 degree heat.

5. Charity Events

Giving back and helping others is one of the best parts of being in real estate. We just did an annual toy drive in December. It was great. This fall we’re planning a back to school drive and plan to get school supplies to 250 inner city kids. If you’re inspired to participate in that, get in touch.
