Ugh, there isn’t enough time in the day to get anything done… Or so it feels.
Everywhere I go there are distractions. Dogs wanting to go outside every five seconds, my mom calling me every half hour to ask me what she should she eat for lunch (How in the heck am I supposed to know?!!!), nephew beating me up in wrestling and wanting to play with his toys (which I love doing by the way), Facebook whispering in my ear to see if anyone has anything good to say (usually the answer is NO), and anything else you can think of.
Some days I feel like I’m going to pull all of my hair out because I can’t get anything done. I just want some peace and quit for an hour, is that too much to ask?
Anywhoo, I’m learning how to manage my time and distractions. One of the best things to do is separate yourself from realty. Go into a room and lock the door. Turn off your phone, click the off switch on your internet, and get to work.
If you do this you’ll be amazed at how much you can get done in an hour. Your phone isn’t ringin’, beepin’, and boppin’. Facebook won’t be sending you notifications that your friends just went to the bathroom, and your dogs and kids can’t come up to your face and start poking you with their fingers and noses (little rascals).
Now, I know some of you can’t part with your phones. Well then, I say, “Good Luck!”
For the rest of you, check out Dan Kennedy’s book, No B.S. Time Management for Entrepreneurs. If you’re truly interested in growing your business, getting things done, and having more free time to do the things you want, then this book is a MUST read.
You’ll be shocked to find out that Dan doesn’t have a cell phone. You’ll be more shocked to know that Dan doesn’t even have the internet (I have confirmed this). Amazing huh?
So, what do you do to manage your time? Any tips you would like to share?
Now go take action!
