Time management is a skill you will need to learn to run your business, and a skill that means you will need to work smarter, not harder. There’s a difference between having the peak busy thing going on and not getting much accomplished and being busy in a productive manner. That means YOU NEED TO STAY FOCUS!!!
You’ll find this fascinating. It’s the 80/20 rule that states 80% of unclear effort generates 20% worth of results. That’s BAD! But look at it another way, 20 percent of your staff will cause 80 percent of your problems, but another 20 percent of your staff will provide 80 percent of your production. It works both ways. Think: what would happen if you changed your focus?
To put off things, what do you need to do? Procrastination can undo even the most seemingly committed business people. You need to make time for success and that means not putting off things that you can achieve today until tomorrow.
Need to get in the right mood, what can you do? Wait for the right time? Goals need to be achieved first in order to grow your business in a successful way. Wait for no man and once you have them, you must struggle to reach them. Goals give focus, and what gives more pleasure than reaching your goals? Maybe it’s the way you work that needs to be looked at. Are your goals not clear, and are you underestimating task difficulties? Do you underestimate the time needed to carry out your tasks and have unclear standards for task completion? Are you deep in your heart afraid of success or failure or a perfectionist?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you need STAY FOCUS. It means improving in on what your work patterns are and then learning to adjust your habits to get that focus you want. It’s a simple equation: where you focus your attention is where you put your energy. And considering this, attention to something at hand is a matter of choice – YOUR choice!
Find out how well you are doing by creating a focus test. Easy test, just look back at your last week and ask yourself what you did to attain your goals, what you were focusing on. Be truthful to your answer, and if the answer does happen to be you didn’t achieve your goals because you didn’t have it together, then shake your head, learn from the experience, remember it and move on.
