Hustling Like a Hooker

Hustling Like a Hooker

When you work from home you can get lazy.  There are no two ways about it.  The start time moves and the end time move all in the wrong direction.  Now Tim Ferris can have his 4 hour work week all day long but I need to work.

When I am not working on client projects I need to be working on marketing – no two ways about it.  I take great holidays and now rarely work weekends.

But on occasion, I find myself getting lazy and besides the start times spending a little bit more time not focused on the things that matter.  Her is what I do to kick myself in the proverbial butt.

Project List – Fill it Out

I, of course, know my projects but spending a half an hour reviewing my projects, cleaning up the activity lists and To-Dos (all in Google Docs clears the mind  Especially when said task lists mean the project can be closed and invoiced.  HAving a line item for every project even if it is marketing or blog posts for yourself shows you your workload and when I scrub it I feel 100 times better.

Daily To Do List

I use Evernote a lot and when I do create a To Do list my productivity increases.  I also make sure it is an attainable list.  Recently I started linking my To Dos into a weekly list and a Goal list.

Goals are so important and I have read hundreds of books on the topic but just last week I finally created a structure (linking notes to goals) where my daily To Do list is connected to a weekly To Do list and to my Goals.

All very fancy but now I put 15 minutes every morning to updating these and putting them in line.

A bit of overkill.  No not at all.  I find it great as my goals cover business, health and life in general.  No plan poor progress basically.  Having it written down does help.
