Four Surefire Time Management Techniques To Boost Your Home Business Bottom Line!

Aug 17, 2007
Applying time management technique to work from home business is so vital it's often understated. Many people go "belly up" trying to run a business from home, whether it be MLM, web publishing or internet marketing simply because they don't implement a plan of action.

Time management technique isn't just using your time wisely; it's a combination of practices all working to achieve the best possible outcome for you. It's so easy to get way laid when you are working on your own from a home environment. Applying some well worn tactics can both increase your productivity levels and boost your bottom line.

Let's have a look at some time management techniques that have served me well during the past 12 months.

Time Management Technique

1. You need to implement a plan of action. Before I started to turn my business around I would wake up in the morning and try to decide exactly what it was I was going to work on that day. Not good! By the time I'd decided, half the day was gone and then "Mr. Procrastination" would start to play with my mind by suggesting things like... "It's too late to work on this today. You are better off starting fresh tomorrow." Does this sound familiar?

2. Plan your action at least a week in advance. It makes sense. By delegating specific tasks to specific days it eliminates the wasteful time you'll spend trying to figure out what you are going to work on any given day. This will get you into a routine and eventually, your work week will begin to automatically take shape. In fact, you should get to a stage when you'll know what you'll be doing in two weeks time. It's called planning your action.

3. Dedicate a particular part of your home to your work area. This may be a spare room or an area well away from normal human traffic. This is your work space and more importantly, it's an area you can spend quiet time in to come up with new ideas.

4. Dedicate an amount of time you'll spend on the business each day. This is one area which really catapulted me out of the "doldrums" and into the area of professional. Why? Because I disciplined myself to spend 6 hours a day on the business between 8am-2pm. Nothing short of a tidal wave ( I live on the beach!) was going to distract me from my work...nothing!

Okay, so maybe something other than a tidal wave could have distracted me but it was this kind of discipline which helped me progress from the ranks of amateur. Once 2pm came along, I was free to spend some time on other activities.

This time management technique works for me. It could work for you too however, you could modify it any way you like. But remember, start with a plan of action and know days in advance what you will be working on in your business.
