Be very honest with yourself. Are you one of those people that believe that you just do not have the time to get your home business up & going? Well, you are not alone.
Surveys say that many people claim they have too much to do & not enough time to do it. They ultimately end up defeating themselves & their business loses momentum and it too suffers.
Family obligations, full & part time jobs, maintaining health & other distractions are the main reasons for not building momentum for their home based business. We often end up feeling that our lives are spent catering to everyone else’s obligations, projects and duties.
However, there is some awesome news! You can carve out and maximize time to build momentum for your business. All you need is to find the chunk of time. Then commit to use that chunk for your home business Only. Try these following strategies to make your home based business blossom & flourish.
Document/Record Your Daily Routine
The first thing you will need to do is find a quiet place and write down your entire weekly schedule. Document the start & end time on events like getting ready for work, your commute to your day job, driving your children to daycare or school, gym time and any other weekly commitments you may have. Also include weekends and family time (this is most important).
After completing this exercise you should have a good visual aid of what your week looks like. You should see some openings (areas to hightlight) in your week. Attempt to find 2 hours you can commit to invest/spend on your business. Then review and re-prioritize some hours of time.
Stay with this Schedule that You Created and then Re-Evaluate
The next thing you need to do is stay consistent with your schedule. This can be challenging because you are creating a new habit. Once you get the hang of your new routine, always re-evaluate & take inventory of your schedule. You may be able to find more time to spend on your home business as you move forward and evaluate.
Discipline yourself to stay consistent with your new schedule. This means that you have to find a way after the j.o.b., after dinner, after the soccer games, and after putting the kids to sleep.
Don’t Forget Your Family
Spending time with my family is always the top priority for me. I have young children (1 and 4) so I try to focus on the business when my kids are in bed (early in a.m. & late at night). I find that using the evening hours is best for me to spend on my home business. I am a nite owl And it seems to be the most quiet part of the day. It helps we wind down as well.
As we all know life also throws us off schedule often. Try your best to embrace this fact instead of fighting it. If your child stays up late, focus on helping your child quiet down and go to sleep. Try not to focus on what you could be doing. Get balance.
If you have to stay late at your day job, then choose to work late on your business. Usually, you’ll find that it is better just to focus on one thing at a time. You’ll be more efficient & effective. You will be most productive when you have a clear and guilt free mind while working on your venture.
To handle new ideas that can distract you while you’re working, keep an audio recorder handy. Record your thought or write down the idea in a notebook. You will also find that you are using less energy dealing with distractions instead of fighting them. Get to them later.
So there truly is good news when it comes to finding time to work on your own home based business. Do not despair. Never get frustrated. Just remember that you have total control of your time. Only you & you alone can change your habits to build your businesses momentum. You can do it.
