Having a home business requires you to have a work at home mindset. Many seniors have a problems with this. Maybe this article will help.
Some tips to help you improve your mindset:
1) It’s really important to me to succeed. The first thing I say to anyone considering working for me is that I want to succeed. I really want to see my wife and kids grow. I want to feel good about myself. I want to enjoy life more.
2) It’s also important to me to learn as much as I can about this business. I don’t want to be learning on the job. Not unless I have to. But I want to learn about internet marketing and how to do it better so that I can put in place better systems so I can make more money. The more I learn about the business, the easier it will be for me to succeed in my home business.
3) It’s important to me to have time to reflect and enjoy life. I want to be able to return to my family and enjoy them. I want to enjoy time out even though I may have to share it with my wife. I want to be able to reflect on the day and reflect on what I may have done well. And I want to be able to spend more time doing what I enjoy and less time doing what I hate.
4) There is a balance to strike between work and home. I am doing this work because it pays well and gives me a sense of accomplishment. I may not be able to work 80 hours a week, but I may not have time to work 40 hours per week. This business requires discipline and balance. If I’m spending all my time on my business, I won’t be able to spend time with my wife and kids. That’s a hard thing to do.
Balance Is Important
A good balance is a good balance. You want your business to be work but not work all the time. I’ll take a break from work to play with my kids if that’s possible. If I’m working 50 hours a week, then I won’t have the time to do much else.
I used to work 50 hours per week. Now I work 40 hours per week and have more time for my family. That was true before I got my computer business. The computer business required more work from me, but now I have time for my family. I may work 40 hours per week, but I’m taking time out of work to do the business. If I was sitting at my desk looking at an endless monitor, there wouldn’t be much time left for anything else.
The work you do is important and necessary. Don’t take it for granted. Take care of it and you’ll have more time to spend on the other important things in your life.
So what do I do with all the extra time?
I spend it on my business. Here’s how:
1. Make a plan for your extra time. I used to just think that I would take time off from my work. Now I plan how I will spend that time. Some of it will be for the business and some will be for the rest of my life. This time is all that I have. No more time will come from anywhere else. I have to make the most of it.
2. Take action. I know this sounds cheesy, but it’s true. Do something. Get up early, have a productive day, get back to work. This is the only time I can really use my mind to its full capacity. I have to make sure that I do something. No excuses. Don’t give up. I haven’t made it easy. We all have something we dread doing, that we think we shouldn’t do. That’s the thing about time management. We can do it or we can do nothing. I chose to do nothing. Now is the time to take action.
What do I do with the extra time? I spend it on my business. So far I’ve made an additional $200 per week on my business. That adds up to $4,000 per month. That’s an additional $64,000 per year. That’s crazy. If you do the math you’ll see that it’s not a bad investment. It’s also the biggest decision you’ll ever make. At the end of the month, you will have to say “yes”. Don’t waste this time. Get a plan in place, work out the kinks, and enjoy the ride.
Time management is not rocket science. There are steps to follow. It’s the consistency of your steps that matters. If you have a plan and you follow it, your life will become easier. It will become easier because you’ll be doing what you really want to do. You’ll have more time, and you’ll have more time because you’ll be spending it on the things that matter to you.
