Am I insane or is this "Drive"? Written by Chris De La Rosa
Do you sleep in on weekends? When I worked my 9-5 job I would hear it all time from coworkers.."I get to sleep in tomorrow". I can honestly say that I don't sleep in. You would think with working from home (set your own hours) that it would be very easy to take a couple hrs of extra sleep. Every day, including Saturdays and Sundays I wake between 6.30 and 7 am est as a rule, and I just don't wake up and then park my behind on couch to watch tv... I get my tea and get doing something. My body is programmed to this routine. Here's how my day starts.. I get out of bed, put kettle on for a cup of tea, while that is boiling I let dog out in back yard and start my computer. After letting dog in, I call up to my girls to get up for school and then grab my tea to go read my emails from overnight.
When I look back to my childhood I realize that on weekend I would also get up early to get my chores done, so then I can have rest of day to do as I please (with my parents permission that is) .
Do you have a To-Do list?Written by Chris De La Rosa
I have a huge white board in my home office, about 4ft x 3ft..my friends laugh when they come over due to size of it. Here is where I plan my days. I'll be honest, my memory is not as great as it used to be as I tend to forget things that would never slip me before. Along with my huge white board I also have about 4 dry erase markers..blue - red - green and black. here's how I used my board .. Every day I make a do to list (a section is also reserved for a monthly to-do list - big projects) I try to break up board into 4 sections... 1. My personal websites - stuff that needs to get done. (www.genuinejobs.com / www.basichomebusiness.com / www.easyebayprofits.com ..and others in development) 2. The sites that I offer support and consulting for. (Ilovemlm.com / Bigmoneyfreetime.com) 3. Things that I give myself month to accomplish. 4. Stuff I need to do around house..like change filters, small repairs etc.. Everyday I make a list of things that needs to get done for each of 3 main categories using 4 markers I mentioned earlier..
