In the real estate industry, seasons matter, and with spring in full bloom, more folks are likely listing their homes or looking for homes. As the weather gets warmer, this is typically the point in the year when the mortgage industry starts ramping up. Also, as volatility in the industry starts to die down and rates start to settle a bit, you’re likely (and hopefully) noticing that work is picking up and you’re busier than you were during the winter months.
However, as your workload picks up, it can often be difficult to prioritize and determine where you should be focusing your attention to make sure you are making the most of your working day. So in an industry where time is truly money, what can you do to make sure you are spending that time on efforts that really matter?
Identify Your Most Important Tasks and Rethink Your Workflow
While it may seem like a no-brainer to identify your most important tasks and prioritize them, that is often easier said than done. It can also become increasingly difficult to determine where to focus your attention when you experience a growing client base or an increase in loan volume. These circumstances are particularly challenging because your tasks haven’t necessarily changed, you just have more to handle overall.
