Currently, I am more in education side of the business than the marketing side. I broke
down the activities and show the percentage of each activity for
present (currently in place) and for the future (planning).
My spring ideas for this
year would be:

Taking real estate courses, attend TAR and NAR seminars and
conferences and serving as a TAR, NAR committees and monitor in
the classes offered by our board.
recently I joined a Toastmaster club in our area and my goal is to
finish the 10 required presentations to be completed by the end
of this year, which gives me the Competent Communicator (CC)

I have plan to travel to Europe for visiting friends and family
(pleasure) about 1 month, travel to out-of-town and out-of-state
for TAR and NAR seminars and conferences (business) with a total
of 3 weeks. (11%)
Me Time: Currently (13.0%), Planned (18%)
This includes the time to visit friends and family and spent
times with them. Next month, a family of 4 is coming from Canada
to visit us and probably I spent about 2 weeks (14 days) with
them and entertaining them. 1 week per year(7 days) my vacation.

members, estimated total 1 day in two weeks (26 days per year).
Total 47 days/365 day= 13%
Sleep: Currently (15%), Planned (15%)

usually sleep about 3-4 hours a day, that ratio becomes
