Beat the Afternoon Slump

Uh oh… it’s that two o’clock slump. Everybody knows how it feels to come back from lunch and realize you’re practically falling asleep at your desk. At that point, it’s too easy to just check out and coast through the last few hours. But those hours can still be valuable if you know how to use them.

  • Do something mindless. Some tasks require all your brain power, but others can be done even when you’re running on empty. During those times, try doing something mindless, like straightening up your desk, filing papers, or sorting your email inbox.
  • Prep for tomorrow. Laying out your to-do list the day before can make the following morning easy.
  • Get out of your chair. Getting up to stretch or take a short walk can reinvigorate you and give you the energy to finish one or two more things before the day is over.
  • Do a little reading. This is the perfect time to learn something new. All of those articles you’ve been bookmarking and webinars and podcasts you’ve been meaning to listen to are great afternoon opportunities.

If you followed Mark Twain’s morning advice and got your most important task out of the way first thing, it’s okay to have a low key afternoon and take on some housekeeping tasks – be that literally office housekeeping, or the kind of organizational housekeeping that’s necessary to keep your business running smoothly.

Andrea L. Testimonial

I want to thank you for making the process of establishing a loan so easy for us. As a real estate agent in Denver, I have the opportunity to work with a lot of lenders – I know the good ones from the bad ones. And YOU are definitely one of the “good ones”. For my own home purchase, you can imagine how selective I was in working with a lender on our mortgage. I am so glad that we worked with you and CityWide. It’s no secret that the process of procuring a mortgage is extremely stressful, but you made this process as smooth of a transaction that it could have been and given the fact that we lived in Denver, and Marcus was in the middle of a very hectic travel schedule, you met and EXCEEDED our expectations.

Your attention to detail, your personal attention to us and our needs, and your overall professionalism made the biggest difference and the best possible experience for our family. I will recommend you not only to my friends and family but to my clients who are looking for the highest level of service for their mortgage.

Thanks again Jim for everything you did for us. We are so happy to be back home in Naperville, and in our house, that very much feels like home.
