Benjamin Franklin advised to “make your list for the next day on the night before leaving work.”

Agent Sundii C. Jones understands this secret to effective time management. Each night she makes a prioritized list of things to be done for the next day, and then doesn’t let anything distract her from completing this list early the next morning.

Prioritizing your tasks and getting them done early is a huge step toward accomplishing your goals.

Successful agents control their time and limit or eliminate distractions from themselves and others. Use this secret to plan each day’s task list and reach your goals this year…

Here’s Sundii’s description…

“Doing the FIRST things FIRST! I love getting to know people on a deeper level. When I say “how are you today”? I mean it! But…..sometimes it backfires. People want to tell you how they are doing when you didn’t ask, or don’t have time to listen to personal issues. How do you balance? I make a list of things as they come up through out the day. If they are things that don’t get taken care of that day they go on the top of the list for the next day. At night I go over the list and number them in priority. The following morning BEFORE anyone else gets in or the phone starts ringing, I complete my list at a break neck, marathon pace. By 10am I’m ready for everyone else knowing the most important things for the day are completed!”
