Focus Your Time to Build Your Home Business

Building a business includes being able to focus how you spend your time.

There is one critical component to building a business and we all have an equal amount of it. And that component is

TIME.

Time, however, can often elude us. A quick look at our emails sends us on a mission to solve a client’s problem.

What is intended to check to see if we have any messages on facebook ends us with an interesting blog post getting

clicked on.

There are lots of great time management tips available, so check out those for the nitty gritty of prioritizing.

But, if you know all of those and still struggle with focusing,  here are four quick tips to help you become more

laser-focused with your time in building a home business:

1. Clearly write out (yes, on paper!) what you do that is the most valuable part of building your home business.

Document at least five key things on this A List.

2. Now list 10 low value activities that take up a lot of your time. Learn to delegate, minimize, and control the

time these low value items take up, so you can focus on the high value ones.

3.  Carve out blocks of time of 60 to 90 minutes where you refuse any distraction, including the phone, so you can

accomplish high value work from your A list. You might even find it helpful to set a timer.

4. Put controls on your email. Don’t have your email be set up as your home page. Set up specific times to check

and deal with email. If you don’t do this, email can be a great deceiver – making you think you are accomplishing

something, while it is actually distracting you from your work. The same guidelines can be used for facebook too.

I love how Amanda Han shared more detailed tips about time management.

If you had a bank account that credited your account with $86,400 every morning with no balance carried over to the

next day each and every day, what would you do? Well, you do have such a bank. It is time.

Every morning you are credited with 86,400 seconds.

This is why it is so vital to learn to focus your time in building your home business.
