3 Time Management Tips For Success
The time management tips for this discussion are mindset, income producing and non income producing activities In that order, I might add.
1) A great way to start the day is by working on mindset including goal setting and gratitude. Also, morning wake up calls with a coach or motivation group help to get you in the frame of mind for success. Another must do is spending time on my “why” (why I do this), this reinforces my commitment to step out of my comfort zone and move forward.
2) Now you are ready to jump in to income producing activity mode.Just to be clear, I am refereeing to activities that make money, if not today in the future. This includes creating and sharing content, placing ads and following up with prospects. It is important during this time to stay focused as this is worth your full attention. So turn off the TV, close the door, smile big and get to work.
3) The marketing training part of the day can be both exhilarating and frustrating and must not be forgotten. Face it, working on the technical stuff is cool, however, it also can be monotonous. Time allotted to building websites, making capture pages, writing ad copy and learning new skills will only increases your competence level which in turn increases your confidence level. When working on these aspects of your business,to keep it exciting, see it as an in vestment. You have heard it before I am sure, freedom isn't free, it takes the investment of time and money to achieve both time and money freedom.
Additionally throughout the course of your day, and perhaps most important of these time management tips, take at least ten minutes out of each hour to stretch, move around and take your mind to a relaxing place. Then before returning to task, take a few minutes to reflect on your efforts thus far. taking time to recall interactions with with prospects and to get an understanding of what went right or what went wrong. By doing this you can fine-tune your process and make some notes on how to improve your conversations as well as your conversions.
Of course, everyone is different and this is only a guide. These time management tips for your success make it easy to stay on track as well as fuel motivation and excitement knowing that you are moving forward with each activity.
