Focus is a funny thing. Too little of it and you don’t achieve your goals; too much of it makes life not worth living. Listen as James and Ezra share tips on how to achieve that viewpoint and balance you need to get the focus you want.

    A couple of tools I use are:
    Calendar: Acuity Scheduling. I’ve scheduled literally 10’s of thousands of appointments int he last 5 years and Acuity allows complete flexibility and management of your time down to the minute or as broadly as you would like.

    Project Management: Insightly seems to be a good tool for a combination CRM/project management tool. So many tools are either project management based or CRM based…but you need a balance of both. I hope this helps!

    PS: Let me know if you need an agent in Austin. I’ve owned a real estate company for several years before entering the online space. 🙂

  • Wow, will definitely be taking the challenge from the WWW on Focus episode – will keep you posted on results. Thanks!

    [Immortal’s Five start review on iTunes for Think, Act, Get Power episode:

    “This is the podcast that got me hooked on listening to podcasts, and it’s still my favorite.

    I crushed through all the back episodes in about a week, and I can’t wait for the new ones to arrive. These guys have a ton of credibility; they’ve both scaled the mountain and have been living at the top so long that they’ve become very introspective about how they got there.

    They give away those insights, a ton of value on each episode…it’s great content for which lesser marketers would certainly charge.

    Keep it up, guys.”]
