Working from home is such a blessing for many reasons. Most importantly, I get to spend quality time with my daughter at home and participate in all her school activities. Not only that, I get to help so many people better their lives through health and creating their own freedom to choose their hours and lifestyle.? However, working from home isn?t always what I had always imagined it to be. There are some days when I don?t get much work done, but most days I am dedicated to my business and focused building my team and on making money!
There are a few best practices I try to incorporate regularly in to my schedule to make sure that I am being productive and able to help my It Works team with their success as well.? Here are some tips to help you!
Tips On How To Be Productive
Set Work Hours – I know, you work at home for the freedom, but having set hours will ensure that you get things done. This doesn?t mean that you will be tied to your computer or your phone every day at that time (unless you want to) but this gives you a general time blocked off for the money generating activities that you need to do. Make sure everyone, and I mean everyone, knows that this is your time to work (not play Candy Crush or hang out on Facebook), but focus on the money generating activities you need to get done.
Delegating Tasks – Oh yes! This has definitely helped me with how I run my business.? Taking time to do things that won?t help you make money or get you to where you need to be will not move you further along. Realizing that you can?t do everything on your own is important, which is why utilizing your helpful support team is best to keep on track! In addition, I have a personal assistant to help me with my day-to-day business tasks. You as a person are your biggest asset, but don?t forget your team of support!
There is a quote by Stephen Covey that says, ?Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important.?
Isn?t that true?
Have Fun – We create this type of lifestyle to help others and to live our lives how we have always dreamed. What good is working 80 hours a week if you can?t enjoy what you?re creating? It?s time to enjoy life and take a break!? It is important to support your customers and your team, but if you show them that you?re all work and no play at all, why would they want to create that same lifestyle?? Enjoy your time, live in the moment, and experience things that you really enjoy! By doing so, it will fuel your fire to work hard and continue living an exciting lifestyle! The best part about this is you are also helping others live theirs! A win, win!
