The Different Kinds of Time

Posted by Kevin Ahearn on August 28, 2013 at 3:35 PM

Hi! This is Kevin. I had an interesting question last week during one of our Live/Interactive i-FAStTRAC Sessions on Time Management.

A real estate agent, fresh out of licensing school, who was participating in the session asked me to clarify by examples what I meant by: Green Time, Blue Time, Yellow Time and Red Time activities.

I was surprised by the question because I had just finished giving an example of each as I developed the topic. My first reaction was “Is this guy hard of hearing?” Then it hit me! Like so many agents I have trained over the last 30 years, he was so new to real estate he couldn’t visualize beyond my singular example what other activities might fall under each the four (4) kinds of time.

So I made a pact with myself coming out of that training session to devote my next four blogs to identifying and expounding on each of the four kinds of time and give multiple examples of each.

Stay tuned!

I thought you were pretty clear on it. Let me take a crack at it and see if I got it right (Remember I'm a newbie) GREEN TIME- Money time, doing the things to generate your cash flow. Warm canvassing your farm markets with a specific purpose, proactive prospecting etc. BLUE Time - Your "support" time to develope materials (flyers, mailers etc), website updates, Listings etc. YELLOW TIme- Real estate related time, education, board meetings,affirmations, schedule reviews. RED Time- Personal time, vacations, family, etc..
