How to Squeeze Every Drop Out Of The Day - Mastering Techniques In Efficiency / Pete Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

May 29, 2019

Greetings and welcome to the Creative Entrepreneur Podcast, I am your host Peter Lorimer, former hit record producer, now host of the show Stay Here on Netflix and owner LA’s most creative Boutique real estate firm, PLG Estates.

 

I'm obsessed with efficiency. I want to squeeze every drop out of every day, and it essentially comes down to two words: action and reaction.

Tailors waste approximately 15% of their fabric. Let's apply that to real estate. If you're wasting 15% of your time (and honestly, I believe some agents are wasting more), that equates to 6 weeks a year.

When working towards productivity, the demons lie in "what next?". It means you're reacting to your day. Make 8 hours a day seem like 16 and stop reacting to your day by calendaring and squeezing every bit of juice out it. For instance, I Uber everywhere. That costs me 1k/month, and while I'm Ubering, I work. I make back what I've spent in multiples.

There are so many creative ways to squeeze time out of your day. If you do the things I mention in this podcast, I promise, you'll increase your productivity.

Let's not waste time! Here's this week's episode of the Creative Entrepreneur Podcast.

 

Golden Nuggets from this episode:

 

[3:20]  if you are a tailor, that you are approximately going to waste 15% of your fabric”

[5:14] “”What next?” is where the demons lie!”

[7:09] “What I think is a crime is that we're all trying to figure out on the day what social media we are gonna post”

[12:45] “What happens when I take Uber? I continue to work!”

[13:38] “Doing transaction coordinating is at least 10% of your time, at least, it’s probably more!”

[14:43] “if I spend the money and after a year I see no results I'll adjust the strategy.”

 

Thanks for being here,
