Showing property takes the most time but you cannot rush those things Some buyers move very slowly, take their time and you just have to deal with it.

Waiting on other people. Nothing I can do to finish the writing work I do if I'm waiting on an email from a source. Only way anyone can ever work around that is to have enough things going at once that a delay on one thing means more time spent on another.
