Even though the reasons to improve your time management are a complete no-brainer, the process involved in actually doing it is anything but..
“Manage my time? Awesome.
But where do I start?”
Perhaps in your most courageous moments, you’ve made the commitment to start.
You’ve promised yourself that you’re going to manage your time better on your next cat deployment. You’re going to set up some kind of system that’ll help you be better at returning calls, finishing corrections, or getting to appointments on time.
If you’re super committed, you might have even tried to figure out how to squeeze in another claim or two by hiring an assistant or speeding up your inspections.
But even with the best intentions, the chaos of the first few weeks of a storm sweep away any notions of tweaking and improving time management and so continued attempts are abandoned.
Here’s why most attempts at comprehensive schedule overhaul and abandoned:
Without a super clear, step-by-step project plan for streamlining time management, most adjusters just get lost.
They fall victim to endless corrections, a time-sucking sticking point, or a lack of clarity over exactly what they need to do to build out a schedule that delivers.
Here’s why this is irreversibly crippling.
As an already stressed out and busy adjuster, working 16 hour days, with phonecalls to make, houses to inspect, and estimates to write, you literally can’t afford to veer off course.
You have NO TIME to tweak and experiment with your workflow and schedule design.
And by the time the cat is over, the last thing you want to do is anything related to claims
Therefore, crushing your time management is one of the big things you NEED to get right the first time.
And luckily for you, VERY FEW people out there are doing it right.
In all likelihood, the adjusters competing with you for storm deployments and claims have either failed at good time management, or are so ineffective at it that it’s a wonder they get deployed at all.
Even if you’re late to the party, there’s still a golden opportunity for you to jump in, clean up the mess, and convert your SCHEDULE into solid profits.
That is… if you can avoid the same deadly time management mistakes that your competitors are making
