Are you in a position, where you want to start an online business, but you are finding it a challenge to fit it in your busy schedule? If that’s the case with you, carry on reading, as I will share with you a two step process, to free up more time, in order to start and run your business.
Let’s get started
In order to free up your time, the first thing you must do is know how you are currently spending your time. As time is the one thing we all get in equal measure. We all get 24 hours a day, 60 minutes in an hour and we all use up that time.
For the next couple of days, or a week max, keep a detailed record of how you spend your time. From the moment you wake up, until you go to bed at night.
After you’ve kept an accurate log of how you spend your time. You will discover the following:
1 – You participate in certain activities, just for the sake of killing time.
It could be something as simple as watching a rerun of TV show. When you think about it, these are the type of activities that we can give up or sacrifice.
2 – There are activities or tasks you do, that you can delegate or outsource.
3 – Your must do’s.
These are activities you must do no matter what. For me, an absolute must is spending a couple of hour’s day of quality time with my daughter.
4 – Finally you are going to discover that there are activities you do that enable you to do something else at the same time. For example, I spend on average of two hours on the train. Here’s how I make best use of time, by writing articles like this on my kindle fire. Before I had my kindle, it was on my Smartphone or notepad.
By doing the above exercise, you should be able to at least free up an hour of your day, for you to start and run your online business. If you are serious about starting a business, that’s the bare minimum of time, you should invest.
Even after doing the above exercise and you still are unable to free up any of your time. You can always go to sleep an hour later or wake up an hour earlier.
