If we want to achieve our goals and enjoy more life and less hustle, we don’t need more time. What we need to do is to manage our time and priorities better. Here are a few direct sales time management tips to help you work smarter.
We need to make sure we are only saying yes to the best and to things that bring us closer to our goals. We need to make sure we are choosing to spend time on what matters most and make the biggest impact.
You have to first know what your priorities are in your life and in your business, the non-negotiables, the big things that you don’t want to sacrifice that need to stay number one. Whether that’s your family time, whether that’s volunteer or church activities, self-care is also something that should be a non-negotiable. Be sure you are only saying only saying yes to the things that reflect your priorities, your goals and your vision for your life.
Once you commit to your priorities, then you can create a schedule that reflects those priorities.
Whether you are the type that needs a set schedule, specific hours you work certain days of the week or if you are more like me and need a more flexible schedule and can work off a task list or theme days/batching tasks, the key is setting aside time to actually work your business. You have to do the work to earn the income
Theme Days and batching similar tasks has been the magic sauce for helping me be more productive for years. Studies have shown is, every time that we jump from one subject or one topic, or one thought train to another, it takes our brains about 15 or 20 minutes to get back into that zone of focus. You can accomplish so much more when you batch similar tasks together into theme projects or even theme days. For example I used to do Marketing Mondays, Team Tuesdays, Work in my Office Wednesdays, Party Thursdays, Follow Up Friday, Event Saturdays, Planning Sundays.
As you are planning for a new year, month, week or day, make sure that every goal, activity, habit, project & commitment you make is aligned with your priorities and highest purpose. Get back in control of your time and make this a year of ease instead of hustle.
