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
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, carry out
your plans, and 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
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
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.
