It’s OK to get out of your normal routine and mix things up a bit. Follow these tips to help keep your mind fresh, your motivation alive, and your work fun.
Feng shui your workspace
Give your workspace a little life to brighten your mood and increase your productivity. Research shows it works! Hang a photo or two, purchase a small plant, scatter some knickknacks; do whatever you need to do to it a comfortable space.
Switch up where you work
Monotony can extinguish your motivation. Switch up your workplace occasionally to keep things fresh. Try a coffee shop where the vibe is calm and there’s ample lounge space. Or if it’s warm outside, try to find a comfortable outdoor space at your favorite café.
Get in on some work fun
Participate in office events. REcolorado Customer Care can attest to the importance of this, and they periodically host fun events for their entire team. For example, during the 2018 Olympics, they hosted what they called the “Care Olympics.” Mini Olympic events were set up, and, in between taking calls from subscribers, they’d compete in the games against each other. It was a great way for the team to take a quick break from work to interact and have fun.
Many brokerages host fun events for their agents. Be sure to ask your office about upcoming events!
Attend networking events
Networking is life in the real estate industry. It’s how you make connections, and meet mentors and friends. One of the best ways to do this is to join a local REALTOR® association. Or, there are other local groups you can join, including Women’s Council of REALTORS®.
Watch a webinar or attend a training class
Work is always more enjoyable when you know how to access and use the tools that are available to you.
