As a mompreneur I know the time constraints of building a successful business online. In order to be successful and create a freedom lifestyle business, you have to be able to get a lot done in a very little time. The key for those who have been able to build online is doing the same thing over and over again and have it down to a science, they have created a system and learned how to stay focus.
Here are 7 top time management tips that will help you get more done every day, leading you to the success you deserve.
Tip 1. Schedule Your Work
The key is to build your business around your life. It doesn’t matter if you are working on your business, full time, part time, or sporadically, make sure you set aside specific amount time each day or week to focus on your business. Put your personal life into a separate compartment that you can open at a different time in the day.
Tip 2. Chunk Everything
The night before I suggest writing out your to-do list for the next day and breaking down your work into tasks and priorities for each day. You should identify 3 key things you want to accomplish that day, plus minor tasks that come second.
Tip 3. Set Deadline and Time Yourself
It’s mind blowing how much faster you can work if you know you have a deadline or time limit. Imagine if you had a boss and he gave you an assignment that needed to be on his desk by 3:00 pm. I am sure you would have it done. Allow yourself about 20 to 30 minutes to complete a specific task. Then use a timer to keep yourself accountable. You’ll spend less time perfecting every little detail and more time just getting everything done. A kitchen timer works perfectly, or you can use a timer app or alarm on your smart phone or computer.
Tip 4. Go With The Flow
Most people have a specific time of day when they are most productive and focused. Take advantage of your best time of day and schedule the work that requires your highest concentration for then.
Tip 5. Make a List
Create an action plan with a list of tasks you need to accomplish. At the beginning of the week, preferably Sunday night, make a list of priority tasks that you need to complete by the end of the week. Put them in a logical order based on how big a difference they will make to the growth of your business. Also consider whether there are other people or tasks that depend on whether you get your part done. Review your list every night.
Tip 6. Keep Your Momentum
Some people find it most effective to set aside specific types of tasks for different days of the week to take advantage of the momentum they gain focusing on one item. For example, do your keyword research on Mondays, email list building on Tuesdays, product development on Wednesdays, etc.
Tip 7. Put on Blinders
Block out everything except the task you need to get done. Shut down or close any other windows or applications except the one you’re working on. The elimination of distractions alone will help you get more done in a short space of time. This was a hard one for me, it is so easily to get distracted on Facebook or start responding to emails.
While not every one of these tips will work for everyone, they are the top 7 proven ones used by successful online business owners and marketers. You’ll hear them being recommended over and over again. That’s because they work.
Implement these 7 tips in your business and life and get to work!!
