Be honest with yourself. Are you one of those people that believe that you just don’t have the time to get your home based business up and running? You’re not alone. Many people I talk to claim they have too much to do and not enough time to do it. Then they end up frustrated and lose their drive which makes the business suffer
Full time jobs, family obligations, maintaining health and too many other distractions are the main reasons for not building momentum for their business. Sometimes this can make you feel that your time is used taking care of everyone else and their needs
However, I have some good news! You can find and maximize time to build momentum for your home business. All you need is to find time and commit to use that time for your home business only. Try the following strategies to make your home based business flourish.
Document Your Daily Routine
The first thing you will need to do find a quiet place and write down your schedule. Document the start and end time on events like getting ready for work, driving your kids to school, your commute to your day job, gym time and any other weekly commitments you have. Make sure you spend some time with the loved ones (this is most important).
After completing this exercise you should have a good visual of what your work week looks like. Look for time during the week that you can spend an hour or so Make your goal easy: try to find two hours you can commit to spend on your business. You should be able to re-prioritize some time.
Stay with the Schedule You Created and Re-Evaluate
Always adhere to the schedule you mapped out This can be tough because you are creating a new habit. Once you get the hang of your new routine, you should always re-evaluate your schedule. You may be able to find more time to spend on your home business.
Staying on task means you have to push yourself This means that you have to find a way after work, after little league games, after dinner and after putting the kids to bed.
Don’t Forget Your Family.
Having quality time with my family is number one on my daily list Spending time with my family is always a top priority for me. I have young children so I try to focus on the business when my kids are in bed. I find that using the evening hours is best for me to spend on my home business. It seems to be the most quite part of the day.
If you have to use your family time to spend on your business, make sure you communicate with your family so they have an expectation of what you are doing. However, I would recommend that you set a time limit so you can spend that time you want with your family. Creating a balanced life is a key to success
As we all know life also throws us off schedule. Try your best to embrace that fact instead of fighting it. If your child stays up late, focus on helping your child quiet down and go to sleep. Try not to focus on what you could be doing. Don’t worry. The work will still be there when you are ready.
If you have to stay late at your day job, then choose to work late. Usually, you’ll find that it is better just to focus on one thing at a time. This will make you more productive and well organized Having a clear and guilt free mind while working on your business is most productive.
To handle new ideas that can distract you while you are working, keep an MP3 Recorder handy so if an idea comes up you can record it or write down the idea in a notebook. You can always prioritize those thoughts at a later time. Using tools like this will keep you from getting distracted and wasting valuable time
So there is good news when it comes to finding time to work on your own business. Do not feel hopeless if you have plans fall through on occasion Just remember that you have total control of your time and you alone can change your habits to build your internet based business momentum.
