If you’re like me, you struggle with finding enough time in the day to increase your business productivity and, as a result, your profits.
I recently made one change in my life that has blown me away on how much it has increased my effectiveness.
A Simple Idea
I had heard this idea before in webinars from network marketing success stories like Andrew Cass and Adam Chandler. But I had never made a serious commitment to really pursue it.
Here it is: Do your difficult money making tasks during your most productive work hours.
Here is how that translates for me. The task that makes me the most money is writing. My most productive work hours are in the morning. Sounds simple doesn’t it?
Want to know how I have been sabotaging my success for 12 years? This is what my schedule has been like for all those years. Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings I go to Jazzercise from 9-10 a.m. Why do I do this? Because I love to dance so Jazzercise feeds my soul and keeps me healthy. The only other classes are at 6 p.m. and I just can’t imagine getting myself to exercise that late in the day.
Unfortunately, this schedule has me leaving the house at 8:30 a.m. and returning at 10:30 a.m. And, of course, the grocery store and a few errands are right on the way home so sometimes I don’t get back until almost noon. Then I take a shower and eat lunch, get sleepy and need a nap. By the time I get to work on those days it’s often 3 p.m.
Time For Change
You know how sometimes life hands you a serendipitous gift? As much as I love the location and ladies in my class, I decided to do some searching online to see if there were any other classes available. Turns out that just last month a location very close to me started offering classes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 4:30 p.m. I’m there!
I’ve only made this change for two weeks now and I can’t believe how much more I am getting done for my business.
So seriously, honor your most productive work hours with building your business and you will be pleasantly surprised when your bank account starts reflecting the change you have made.
