One BIG problem we all struggle with from time to time is procrastination. Sometimes it’s intentional, but most of the time it’s unintentional, we aren’t even aware.
I can honestly say when I get up in the morning I have the best of intentions to “get a lot of stuff done”!! I even have my list of “To-Do’s”.
But then one thing leads to another and another and then another and before you know it – it’s the end of the work day – and I still didn’t “get my stuff done”.
I can so relate to this short video. See if you can -
So what can we do to eliminate procrastination?
1. Become a list maker – but limit it to your 3 most important items to complete for the day. Too many “to-do” items = overwhelm!
2. Focus- Totally focus on completing 1 item before moving to the next item. When you start another project before completing what you’re working on, you delay the completion of the project you were working on.
3. Schedule your focus time in your most productive time of the day for getting the most done.

Today on my way to picking up hubby from his dialysis treatment I saw an excellent example of what’s meant by “Marketing really is everything”! We live in a large city with many apartment complexes and having been an Apartment Manager for several years, I know that keeping them in “full occupancy” can become quite a challenge.
I had been noticing two apartment complexes in particular that were across the street from each other. Both had put out small yard signs in an effort to bring in some new tenants. The complex on the left had 3 signs out and each sign listed a different amenity:
The complex on the right also had 3 signs out however, they all 3 were the same:
Consumers today are very busy and no matter what they are looking for they want the information instantly. With that said, what’s one of the first things a person wonders about when they are looking for a place to live? What’s going to be included.
Riding down the road and passing these two apartment complexes, you already know the apartments on the left have beautiful hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, and granite counter tops!! What do you know about what the complex on the right…
