QI've re­alised that most of the train­ing I did in 2018 hasn't re­ally stuck and I've fallen back into old habits. How can I get bet­ter about im­ple­ment­ing the things I learn in train­ing ses­sions and con­fer­ences while jug­gling my prop­erty man­age­ment work­load?

AIt can be chal­leng­ing when you are at­tend­ing so many train­ing ses­sions and learn­ing, as well as jug­gling your ev­ery­day work­load, to im­ple­ment all the ideas you take away.

Af­ter at­tend­ing any train­ing and while the ideas are fresh in your mind, take some time to re­view the key points you would like to im­ple­ment in your role or busi­ness. A tip is to write down, list and cat­e­gorise them into three key ar­eas: need to im­ple­ment, would like to im­ple­ment and not a pri­or­ity. Al­ter­na­tively, cat­e­gorise them into a traf­fic light sys­tem: Red (im­por­tant), Am­ber (want), Green (im­ma­te­rial).

Once you have your list, it's im­por­tant to act on the items you have iden­ti­fied and pre-plan reg­u­lar check-ins to en­sure they are be­ing im­ple­mented and car­ried out. We can fall into the trap of get­ting caught up in the day to day with­out plan­ning ac­count­abil­ity around out­comes, which is where we fall back into old habits.

Hav­ing an ac­count­abil­ity-buddy to bounce your ideas off can help main­tain the mo­men­tum of im­ple­ment­ing those im­prove­ments and keep you on track.
