Mail Call Take care of all your mail day you receive it. Don't let those bills and letters pile up on you. If you're unable to pay a bill immediately, file it in a special place that's visible, and note on envelope date you intend to pay it. Answer your letters same day you get them.
The important thing is to think of time as your most valuable asset, because it is. So organize! Decide what you have to do, and what you want to do. From there, it's just a matter of arranging priorities.
Once you start listing and planning what you want to do, and then carry out your plans, you'll find plenty of "extra time" 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, world would be mired in mass confusion
Processing Process You should work your plan exactly as you have it organized on a real day-to-day basis -- a time-efficient basis. Do what has to be done immediately. Don't try to get done in an hour something that's 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. One thing to remember is that mind has an easier time recalling information that we write down, than it does recalling information spoken or heard. So, get into habit of writing your schedule down on paper!
Playtime for Reinvigoration Finally, and above all else, when you're organizing your time and your business, be sure to set aside some time for relaxation. Be sure to schedule time when you and your spouse 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 time you waste each day, and from there, reorganizing your activities is what it's all about. It's a matter of becoming more efficient in use of your time. It's really easy to do, and you will not only accomplish a lot more, you will also find greater fulfillment in your life.
