Ok my friends. He has done it again. My buddy and phenomenal business partner, David Alcorn, has done it again. Just one hour per day is all it takes. He knocks this out of the park. Enjoy!
That is the hour when you decide to actually get to work and concentrate completely on the task at hand. In fact you can probably get more done in an hour of concentrating on only one thing you are trying to accomplish rather than doing just a little here and there and then coming back to it later. If you finish what you wanted to start and still have time left, go on to the next thing you need to do. After the hour give yourself a break and relax. If you have more time to work that day then set aside another hour to do the work you are trying to accomplish. You might be surprised how much you can get done if you try this.
This applies to anything: practicing an instrument, making phone calls, writing blog posts, cleaning your house, etc. If you suffer from procrastination syndrome like I do sometimes then you need to set aside an actual time frame to get to work on what you need to do…just like it was any other appointment you would make.
Time management can be very difficult thing to master if you work at home a lot like I do. You can easily get sidetracked by phone calls, emails, family, etc. Two of the biggest things that can take us away from getting done what need to need to get done are the Internet and TV.
The Internet is one of the most powerful things we have at our fingertips and also one of the biggest time wasters we have. You can easily get sucked into a few hours of nonsense when you just wanted to type one or two emails. Soon you are watching a YouTube video or two, or three, or more and then checking out something on Amazon.com. If you use the Internet for your work like I do then you have to be disciplined at least some of the time. When you set aside your hour to work don’t let yourself get sidetracked by Facebook or any other websites.
TV can be a huge time waster as well. I try not to turn on my TV in the day at all if possible and in reality I’m sure I’m not missing anything anyway. For me I just try and watch TV in the evening if at all. That way I am eliminating the chance of me getting sucked into a show and my valuable time getting lost. If you learn to eliminate or at least minimize the distractions around you, you will feel more accomplished at the end of the day.
I learned this time management technique from Mike Dillard a few years ago. I am very grateful for it! It seems so obvious but sometimes the most powerful things are very simple, but very effective.
Thank you so much David. If you think that he has provided value to you with this piece, please feel free to comment on his blog.
Until next time…
