How to Reorganise Your Time to Accommodate a Home-Based Business


Almost everyone needs or wants more money coming in, and with this desire most would like to start some sort of extra income-producing project. The trouble is, not many of these people seem able to fit ďa second jobĒ into their time schedules.

Itís true that most people are busy, but extra time for some sort of home-based extra income-producing project can almost always be found. It may mean giving up or changing a few of your favourite pastimes - such as having a couple of beers with the guys or watching TV - but if you score big with your extra income project, you will have all the time you want for doing whatever you want to do.

The first thing to do is to sit down with pencil and paper and list your daily schedule. What time do you wake up? Then step-by-step, list everything you do each day. Most people will find that they have about three hours each day that can be utilised in a more constructive or efficient manner. As Iíve noted above, you may have to give up the time you waste in your local pub or a few television programs you watch, but it will be worth it in the long run.

Efficient time management boils down to planning what youíre going to do, and then doing it without backtracking. Start by making a list of the things you want to do tomorrow, each evening before you go to bed. Schedule your trips to the shops or wherever to coincide with the other things you have to do, and with your trips to or from work. Organise your trips to take care of as many things as possible while youíre out of the house. Take stock of the time you spend standing around shooting the breeze - especially the time you spend on the telephone - and eliminate all that isnít necessary.

Whatever chores you have to do at home, set aside a specific time to do them, and a specific amount of time to devote to them. For instance, just one hour a day devoted to outside work would probably make your property the envy of all your neighbours. Donít try to do a weekís work in one big flurry. Whether itís painting your house, fixing leaky drain pipes, or mowing your lawn and trimming your shrubs, do a part of it, or one particular job each day, and youíll be amazed at your progress.

Take care of all your email and snail mail the day you receive it. Donít let those emails, bills and letters pile up on you. If youíre unable to pay a bill immediately, file it in a special place thatís visible, and note on the envelope the date you intend to pay it. Answer your email and letters the same day you get them.

The important thing is to think of time as your most valuable asset, because it is. So organise! Decide what you have to do, and what you want to do. From there, itís just a matter of arranging priorities.

Once you start listing and planning what you want to do, and then carry out your plans, youíll find plenty of ďextra timeĒ for handling virtually any kind of home-based income-producing project. People in general may not like routines or schedules, but without some sort of plan as to what is supposed to be done, the world would be mired in mass confusion.

Laws, ordinances and regulations are for the purpose of guiding people. We live according to an accepted plan or way of life, and the better we can organise ourselves, the more productive and happy we become.

The secret of all financially successful people is simply that they are organised and do not waste time. Think about it. Review your own activities, and then see if you canít find a couple of extra hours in each day for more constructive accomplishments.

When you begin planning, and then when you really become involved in an extra income-producing endeavour, you should work it exactly as you have organised your regular day-to-day activities - on a time-efficient basis. Do what has to be done immediately. Donít try to get done in an hour something thatís realistically going to take a week. Plan out on paper what you have to do - what you want to do - and when you are going to do it. Then get right on each project without procrastination.

Finally, and above all else, when youíre organising your time and your business, be sure to set aside some time for relaxation. Be sure to schedule time when you, your spouse and your kids can be together. You must not involve yourself in anything to an extent that you exclude other people - particularly your loved ones - from your life.

Taking stock of the time you waste each day, and from there, reorganising your activities is what itís all about. Itís a matter of becoming more efficient in the use of your time. Itís really easy to do, and you will not only accomplish a lot more, you will also find greater fulfilment in your life.
