7 Time Management Tips For Home Business

Posted on January 28th, 2019 by The DSWA

We all get 24 hours in a day, so why do some people accomplish more than others?

It’s not time management. It is management of priorities and acting on values.

For example, if you care about your health because you want the energy to keep up with your teenagers or grand kids, you’ll make it a priority to eat right and exercise because you value your health.

When the profits from your business pay the groceries, electric bill, car payment, and so on, you’ll do what you need to do to generate the profits you need.

Time management tips
How many times have you started the day doing all the easy things so you could cross them off your list and then gotten to the end of the day and realized you didn’t do the income generating tasks?

Time Management Tips

These 7 tips can help you get a sort your priorities.

  1. Know your goals.
  2. Know what steps / actions it takes to reach your goals.
  3. Determine which tasks are necessary for each step toward your goal.
  4. Determine the time it will take each day for your actions.
  5. Decide which tasks generate income and help you toward your goal, and schedule those first in your calendar.
  6. Plan the necessary amount of time into your work week schedule.
  7. Refuse to rationalize away your plan and resolve to stick to it.

It may feel uncomfortable to pick up the phone, talk to someone new, share your opportunity, or ask for a booking.

The difference between those who get more done and those who don’t boils down to doing the income generating tasks first, even if they don’t like to do them. Get the discomforting thing done and then the rest will be easier to accomplish.
