To be successful with an online income business good time management is essential and the key to achieving this is to have a strategy or plan of action.

Here are some of the best methods for effective time management;                

Time Management Skills

Begin each day by prioritizing your work. In other words list the things you must do in order of importance, then start with the least pleasant job first and work your way down the list. Things that are not urgent or that important can be done later in the day if you have the time.

Set a time frame for each task that you need to complete, and even if it is not really realistic when you first start doing this, you will learn how to get started and can adjust the time frame more realistically with practice. The whole point of it is to just get started. Your online income depends on it.

Be prepared to be flexible, because what usually happens when you are settling down to work on an important task that can make a significant difference to your online business, something will come up that can derail your efforts. Remember to always allow a bit of extra time for the unexpected. It may not be anything dramatic but there are always those emails, phone calls or other small interruptions that can eat up your time before you even realize it.

Limit the amount of time spent engaging in small talk and let people know that when you are busy with working that they should not interrupt you unless it is absolutely necessary.

Be realistic about what you can and cannot do and think about outsourcing tasks that are not your strong point and will take you more time than they should, especially when your time is limited.

Learn to compromise when necessary as the importance of a task can change, so allow for adjustments and time for when this happens. If you sometimes have to re-schedule certain tasks then don’t beat yourself up about it. Sometimes things happen and some things may need to be re-prioritized or maybe even dropped altogether. It is always a good idea to recognize and accept your limitations; there are some things that you may not be able to do at all and others where you can learn to do them better than before.

Take time to relax as this is every bit as important as achieving success in your online income business, where is the point in working like crazy to make money and then not having any time to relax and enjoy it? The whole point of learning to manage your time is so that you can spend time doing the things you enjoy with the people who are most important to you, while still doing what is necessary for your online success.

 

 

We all have our own particular behaviors and habits and these are what lead us to do things in a certain way. Some of these habits will help to move us closer to our online income goals while others will hold us back or work against us actually ever achieving what we set out to do, not only in business but also in health and relationships.                                                                                                   

Time Management

Most of these behaviors have become so ingrained in us so that most of the time we are not even aware of the fact that we are doing them, but we are rational beings and as such, are able to make a conscious effort to learn how to change the habits that are no longer serving us and are preventing us from reaching our goals into ones that will help us to reach our desired results and improve our lives.

Here are some tips on ways that you can break the bad habits and replace them with ones that will improve your opportunities and your life generally.

1. To begin with you need to identify which habits are detrimental to your online income success and are blocking your path, not only in business but in your life in general.

2. Once you can identify them the best method of breaking these habits is to catch them whenever you find yourself falling into one of these bad patterns. As soon as you become aware of it attach an enormous amount of pain to the situation. You can do this by thinking about all the horrible difficulties that are being caused for you by allowing this particular habit to persist.

3. Start replacing this bad habit with one that will serve you better and think of all the good things that will start happening for you once you learn to follow the better habit.

Remember that you cannot just get rid of a habit that you have had for many years, you will need to replace it with a new habit. Unless you fill the void that is left by getting rid of some that is no good for you, with something that can benefit you that old habit will just come back and fill the empty void again.

4. You cannot just do this once and expect the bad habit to disappear, you will need to be vigilant and practice it on a daily basis for a minimum of 21 days before the old habit dies and gets replaced by the new one.

To summarize; you must identify the bad habit. For example you tend to procrastinate on tasks that are important to the success of your online income opportunities and then you have to rush like crazy under enormous pressure to complete the task. If you are one of those people who perform better under pressure and you don’t mind working that way then great, but if you hate this kind of situation then you would consider this a bad habit.
Once you have identified this as a bad habit then every time it happens think about the amount of stress you put yourself under and how miserable you feel and you are tired out from lack of sleep, make it as painful as you possibly can.

Once you have successfully made it as painful as possible then you must substitute this pain with pleasure by visualizing yourself getting down to doing the task at hand immediately, getting it finished in time all in an orderly manner and then having time to spare. Think about the satisfaction and joy this will give you and see the money rolling in and your online income growing exponentially. Do this every day consistently for a minimum of 21 days and I promise you that your life will become happier and more relaxed and your online business will thrive.

Working from home on your online business can be difficult when it comes to finding a balance. Between the work that needs to be done on your business every day and the requests from family and friends (who for some reason never seem to realize that even if you are at home you are still working) there are times when you may feel that you are being pulled in too many directions at the same time.                                                                          

What very often happens is that your business will suffer, your family will feel neglected or you will tend to neglect your own needs to take care of everything and everyone else.

Here are some tips that should help if you find yourself struggling to keep both work and personal life in some sort of balance;

1.  To begin with don’t persecute yourself about where you are spending your time, just ensure that wherever you are you are giving one hundred percent of your attention to that situation. If you are working then be there and enjoy it, think about your reasons for doing what you do and give it your best effort. The same applies when you are with family or friends; don’t spend the time feeling guilty because you are not working.

2.  Use a day planner or a diary as a tool and plan your day if possible the night before, so that when you get up in the morning you know what you need to do and in what order you should be doing it, and you do not have to spend precious time making up your mind about what you should be doing next. A huge problem that many internet marketers come across is that they get easily side tracked with checking emails or some other task that may be fairly important but is not something that will improve their earnings in any way.

Those tasks should be at the end of any to do list. Do them when the important things have been taken care of. On your day planner or calendar make sure when planning your day ahead that you include the time you have allowed for family or friends, if you go to the gym this also must be included and the same applies to making phone calls and reading or sending emails.

3.  Prioritize your time. What this means is that you need to set a value on each task that you have marked for the day. If personal time is your highest priority then it is obviously something of high value to you. Mark this down first and then work the other tasks around this in order of their value to you.

These are just a few basic tips to get started, you can add to and improve on them but barring any emergencies, if you stick to the program that you have set out, and with practice it will become easier, you will find yourself at the end of each day feeling far more fulfilled and your online business will grow and become successful without you suffering from burnout. When you have balance in your life it is easier to achieve your goals.
