The Art Of Scheduling Without Distraction
Do you know how to schedule your day productively? Do you even keep note of what you do as the day wears on, or do you – as most people – tend to “wing it” to a certain extent? What sets a truly productive person apart from another, who just tends to take the day as it comes, is the ability to master the art of “managing themselves in time” and to understand how important it is to be very focused at all costs.
Now, we have to understand that no two people are the same. If you believe in the laws of the zodiac then it is said that we are all predisposed to act in a certain way according to the particular time of year that we were born. Be that as it may, not all of us are “left brained” and tend to think logically and in a calculated fashion. Even if we are, we may still not understand how important it is to be focused and productive throughout the entire day. Mastering time management is not only important for those who are intending to be successful entrepreneurs, as in truth, each and every one of us could benefit from its application. However, while one person may not have any particular goals in life and be content to take it as it comes, if you’re going to make the most of the network marketing opportunities in front of you, you’ve got to know how to schedule your day in order to make the most of everything.
One of the most important tips that I can give you here and a rule that is never broken by those who are top performers in this industry, is the need to accomplish your most important activities first. In other words, whatever you need to do to produce the greatest revenues should be performed before anything else. This is a way of prioritizing your life. The vast majority of people tend to be more productive during the first few hours of the day and this is also a time when there tends to be the fewest distractions.
The top performers in network marketing will all allocate the first portion of the day to their top “revenue-producing” activities. You have to determine what those activities are going to be, but once you have done so, you will zero in on them for this block of time and never, ever sway from the goal. In other words, you will not open your e-mail, not allow the phone to distract you, not schedule any appointments and be completely self-centered as you pursue your primary goal of the day first.
Of course, this is easier said than done in many respects; as we live such complex lives we may often find pressing reasons to do something else during this particular time block. However, except in the case of a true emergency, you must never waver from this rule and always ensure that you achieve your goals on a daily basis.
As you embark on your network marketing training you will hear time and again that effective application is so important. It’s easy to be distracted and to follow bright, shiny objects, as they say in this business, down a path which is far from the resounding success that you rightly deserve and most likely want.
