Time management

One of the forums I read asked members for ideas on time management. Anyone who owns an online business knows there is always a “to-do” list longer then an arm.

I’ve always been very organized so I thought I would share my answers.

1. Do the hard stuff first.

It’s amazing how freeing getting the thing you dread out of the way is. You can literally sail through everything else after that.

2. Make some things habits.
When you make exercising a habit you never have to ask yourself if you are going to the gym today. Of course you are! Same with a lot of your daily work. Just sit down and start. If you think that checking your emails, stats and certain forums every single day is important, then have a set time and do that.

3. Keep lists.
It’s encouraging toward the end of the day to see how much you’ve managed to cross off. It probably will inspire you to knock off a few more before bedtime too. Plus writing it down allows you to “see” how your day should flow and adjust as the day moves forward.

4. Know that you will never be done!But, you’ll never be bored!
