HOW TO REORGANIZE YOUR TIME TO


ACCOMMODATE A HOME-BASED BUSINESS





Almost everyone needs or wants more money coming in, and with



this desire most would like to start some sort of extra income



producing project. The trouble is, not many of these people seem



able to fit "a second job" into their time schedules.





It's true that most people are busy, but extra time for some sort



of home-based extra income producing project can almost always be



found. It may mean giving up or changing a few of your favorite



pastimes--such as having a couple of beers with the guys or



watching TV--but if you score big with your extra income project,



you will have all the time you want for doing whatever you what



to do.





Efficient time management boils down to planning what you're



going to do, and then doing it without backtracking. Start by



making a list of the things you want to do tomorrow, each evening



before you go to bed. Schedule your trips to the store or



wherever to coincide with the other things you have to do, and



with your trips to or from work. Organize your trips to take care



of as many things as possible while you're out of the house.



take stock of the time you spend on the telephone---and eliminate



all that isn't necessary.





Whatever chores you have to do at home, set aside a specific time



to do them, and a specific amount of time to devote to them. For



instances, just one hour a day devoted to yard work would



probably make your property the envy of all your neighbors. Don't



try to do a week's work in one big flurry. Whether it's painting



your house, fixing leaky faucets, or mowing your lawn and



trimming your shrubs, do a part of it, or one particular job each



day, and you'll be amazed at your progress.





Take care of all your mail the day, you receive it. Don't let



those bills and letters pile up on you. If you're unable to pay a



bill immediately, file it in a special place that's visible, and



note on the envelope the date you intend to pay it. Answer your



letters the same day you get them.





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 income producing project. People



in general may not like routines or schedules, but without some



sort of plan as to what is supposed to be done, the world would



be mired in mass confusion. Laws, ordinances and regulations are



for the purpose of guiding people. We live according to an



accepted plan or way of life, and the better we can organize



ourselves, the more productive and happy we become.







The secret of all financially successful people is simply that



they are organized 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 begin planning, and then when you really become involved



in an extra income producing endeavor, you should work it exactly



as you have organized your regular day-to-day activities---on a



time basis. Do what has to be done immediately. Don't try to get



done in a hour something that's realistically going to take a



week. Plan out on paper what you have to do--what you want to



do--and when you are going to do it. Then get right on each



project without procrastination.





Finally, and above all else, when you're organizing your time and



your business, be sure to set aside some time for relaxation. Be



sure to schedule time when you and your spouse can be together.



You must not involve yourself to an extent that you exclude other



people--particularly your loved ones--from your life.





Taking stock of the time you waste each day, and from there,



reorganizing 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.
