You didn’t tell your boss where he could go to lose money. You told your boss where he could go to open your own business and hit him where it hurts. You will put him out of business, but you never realized how difficult it is to be the boss. One thing entrepreneurs have in common is a learning curve, and many lose sight of their original goal in their daily and nightly grind. First, you must maintain your work/life balance or you’ll burn out before you ever open your doors. Second, follow these tips to keep yourself on track every day. You’ll be amazed how quickly you move up in your niche.
1. Tough Stuff First
Even though you’re an adult, you still put off the things you dread, and guess what? So does everybody else. Stop this habit and tackle the hardest things you’ll face in your day in the morning when you are fresh and alert. Once you get those dreaded tasks out of the way, you’ll breathe a sigh of relief and whistle while you work through the remainder of your day. Putting important tasks off place a weight on your shoulder that will burden you and make it harder to accomplish the rest of your to-do list.
2. Speaking of a To-Do List
Financial and business publication Forbes also recommends you write a to-do list in the first place. If you think you know everything you must get done before day’s end without documenting it, you will be surprised at how much you fail to accomplish. Write down your daily goals and the tasks it will take to achieve them. Then, organize them by dread and importance. You can do this on your business calendar, which keeps your tasks and meetings in one place. Break the tasks down into manageable chunks so you don’t feel overwhelmed when you look at what you must accomplish by day’s end.
3. Shut Off Notifications
