REORGANISE YOUR TIME TO START A HOME-BASED BUSINESS
Almost everyone needs or wants more money coming into the household, and with this desire most people would like to have a home based business that is capable of producing a little extra. The trouble is though, that like the rest of us, they may be time poor.
By definition, most people today are busy, however, if we are honest with ourselves we could find extra time to commence a home-based business. If it means enough to us or if we have a definitive goal, we will find the time and means to not only start it but to ensure that it is successful. By successful, that could mean an extra $100 a week or $1000 a month.
To achieve this though, we may need to re-evaluate certain favorite pastimes, such as having a couple of beers with the guys or watching TV, however, if you reach your goal of an extra $100 or $1000.00 per month, you may very well then have all the time you want for doing whatever you want to do.
Try it. Start by making a list of the things you want and have to do tomorrow. Schedule your trips to the store, School or kids sports to coincide with other things you have to do. Organise your trips to take care of as many things as possible while you’re out of the house. Take note of the time you spend on the telephone. You will be surprised how much time can be saved.
Whatever chores you have to do at home, set aside a specific amount of time to do them. For instance, just one hour a day devoted to the yard would probably make your property the envy of all your neighbours. Don’t attempt to do it in one foul swoop. Whether it’s painting your house, fixing leaky taps, or mowing your lawn and trimming shrubs, do a part of it, or one job each day, and you’ll be amazed at your progress.
You will be amazed that once you start listing and planning what to do, and then carry out your plans, you’ll find plenty of “extra time” for handling virtually any kind of home based business or project. We may not like routines or schedules, but without some sort of plan or road map, how do we know how to get there.
The secret of all financially successful people is simply that they are organised and do not waste time. Think about it. Review your own activities, and then see if you can’t find a couple of extra hours in each day for more constructive accomplishments.
When you really become involved in an extra income producing endeavor, you will get to that point, where organisation and time management becomes second nature. Plan out on paper what you have to do, what you want to do and when you are going to do it. Tip: Don’t Procrastinate.
Finally and most importantly, when you’re organising your time and your business, be sure to set aside some time for relaxation. Be sure to schedule time when you, your spouse and your family can be together. Do not involve yourself in your project to such an extent that you exclude the ones you love, from your life.
Taking stock of your time everyday, and from there, reorganising your activities is what it’s all about. It’s a matter of becoming more efficient in the use of your time. It’s really easy to do, and you will not only accomplish a lot more, you will also find greater fulfillment in your life. I was asked one day if I wanted an extra day every week and I replied yes please, How ? and the answer has stuck with me ever since … Get up an hour earlier.
Until Next Time …
