To Effectively Work Through Your Schedule Each Day it is Wise to have a Time Limit on each Task
As you work through your diary starting your day with the important tasks first, a time limit not only enables you to put your head down and focus but it allows you to set out your day with a workable routine.
Working Online Can Be Difficult to Put a Time Limit To
Working out time allocations to online tasks can be difficult. It is not always streamlined with so much that can go wrong or pop up unexpectedly. What should take 15mins can end up taking 40 mins and so on.
Even when you spend time creating good foundations for your online business there are still technical issues that may appear from time to time.
If you begin by timing yourself to get an average idea of how long each action takes you. You then have a guide to use while entering your daily diary plan.
Give yourself some breathing space by adding an extra gap of time more and above to what you should require for each task. If you use less time than expected and with the extra time you allocated you will end up ahead of schedule. This will take the pressure off and allow yourself a gap that can be used to sort unexpected issues later in the day or to do extras at the end of the day.
You may even be able to enjoy the extra personal time because the day went so well and you are so organised.
The Trick is to Give Yourself Enough Time
You can image, If you write up your plan for the day and do not allocate enough time for each entry that you are going to work your way through, then you are going to fall behind to a point of no return. The pressure will be on your schedule will become disorganised and messy and you may be tearing your hair out by the end of the day.
Be nice to yourself.
Don’t overload your work plan, give yourself breathing space, and keep it manageable.
But, I Can Hear You Saying, I have Too Much To Fit Into One Day?
If you just have too much to fit comfortably into one day then it is time to cut yourself some slack.
- You need to audit your workload drop what is not necessary.
- Eliminate what is not working.
- Click tasks together with automation etc.
If you are still overloaded it may be time to look at allocating some of the workload out and taking on a good freelancer to help you.
