I’ve been wasting time!
I’m told it’s a good thing when you can face reality and take responsibility….
Well, I’m here to admit that I have finally taken responsibility for wasting time.
Like many people who work from home, I am at my desk for many hours each day being ‘busy’.
With the recent arrival of our lovely new grand daughter Molly, I am having lots of time away from my business. So when I’m ‘at work’, I want to be even more productive.
After reading Jason Fladlien’s Double Your Productivity For Life I decided to track how I was spending my day for a couple of weeks.
Then suddenly it hit me…. for far too long now I’ve allowed myself to get into the habit of starting my day by casually flipping through my phone messages, checking email and then social media for what’s going on. I’ve realized that although I’m at my desk by 8.30 or 9.00am, I haven’t begun to be productive till around 10.30am.
What a waste of time!!!
If this sounds like you too then here’s a few things that I’ve been implementing (thanks to Jason’s advice) and they sure do work:
The more often I stay with the new habit, the less likely I am to go back to the old.
These days, in my keenness to get out and visit Molly each day I’ve been leaping into my office chair each morning with a fire and vigour to get my daily tasks done like you’ve never seen before.
Regardless of whether you have 40 hours or 4 hours to invest in your business, what is more important is how focused you are with that time. When you are in working mode – work. When you are in freedom mode – enjoy yourself!
I hope this was helpful and Jason has even more great ideas on how to increase your productivity if you need them.
